Be-YOU-tiful Altered Block
I love making little home decor pieces, especially when they're functional, too! Today we are using a few bits and scraps, 3D Gels, bling and fun Piccolo Accents to make this altered block.
Here's what you'll need from the G&P shop:
3D Enamel Gel Mars Black
3D Enamel Gel Rose Pearl
Bling on a Roll Silver
Vintage Dress Forms Accents A125
Glastique (Gloss or Matte)
Memento Ink Pad Tuxedo Black
14 gauge galvanized steel wire
scraps of patterned paper (My Mind's Eye - Dolled Up)
small alphabet stamps
scraps of lace
Using a nail and hammer, make a hole in the center of the top of your wooden block to fit the diameter of your wire. I used flat nose pliers to shape the wire as shown.
Using the Rose and Mars Block, paint your dressform. When dry adhere using the Glastique to a white piece of cardstock and trim when dry.
Adhere scraps of paper to the sides. Use the fine sandpaper over the edges of the paper scraps to soften them.
Stamp: be YOU tiful on one side of your block as shown. Cut to fit and adhere a strip of bling to the bottom of the stamped square.
Using a bit of adhesive, glue and wrap the lace at the top of the wire (under the circle) and then wind it down, adding a little glue as needed. Adhere a small strip of bling to the top of the lace.
Add your picture and enjoy!
