Music - Up cycled CD case

Happy weekend everyone, Clare here today with a Sprinkle from my imagination!  Recently we have been sorting out our bedroom in preparation for some decorating!  You know what it's like?  You unearth lots of bits and bobs that you you really had forgotten about.  Well I found out an old cd case with some old CDs and decided I would give it a make over.


I started off by giving the case a coat of gesso so that the paints would have a good base to cling to.


Using Dylusion paints (vibrant turquoise, lemon zest, cherry pie, white linen, fresh lime). I painted  directly onto the case.  Using stencils from Tim Holtz, Dina Wakely & Dylusions I added some shapes with the paints I had originally used in the background.

Using Dylusions Dy's Alphabet I stamped onto the case with black ink.

I originally stamped Dina Wakelys Shilloueted woman onto the case but because of the texture she didn't pop as much as I wanted her to!  So I stamped her onto some white tissue paper,  heat embossed with clear powder and carefully applied her to the case using Claudine Hellmuth Matt medium.


I added some doodlles using Posca pens.  My case is now ready to be filled once again with CDs for the car and I shall no longer have my daughter moaning that I'm always listening to the same music!

Thanks for stopping by today, remember to stop by A Sprinkle of Imagination for your mixed media materials.
