hello everyone!! today i am here to show you a little something i created for the Artist on the Block. i am suppose to be in the middle of packing up the rooms and preparing to sell but i just couldn’t not finish this cute little treasure box.
i decided i wanted the edges to look like i soldered them but didn’t want to use the melt pot because was unsure of well plastic in hot powder, so instead out came a sheet of metal from vintaj and started placing it around the outside edges..
i later took this off and used Tim’s industrious stickers which i hot glued to the edges.
so as much as i loved how this was turning out i just knew it needed a little bit of colour so what to do…..
well out came some recycled plastic packaging and my alcohol inks (which i am not sure of what colours as they are packed…) i played a bit trying to decide just what i wanted to create..what did i want to have that pop of colour. and what did i find but a piece of square plastic i saved from yet another package of goodies. once dripped onto this piece i used my can of air and spread the inks around until i was satisfied on how they turned out.
then this is where i lost myself. i so wish i would have remembered to stop and take pictures but once again i got caught up in the whole process and didn’t stop til the end.
i did however remember to stop to take a picture of the stand i was going to place my chariot on
it is one of the largest fragment pieces which i drilled a hole into each corner and place these fantastic wheels into
so here are some close ups of my wonderful chariot of love.
another picture which i of course forgot to take was once again i used mirrored sheets and placed one on the inside bottom and one on the outside top. i wanted the alcohol inked piece to reflect both inside and outside of my chariot
i love the reflection from the bottom side of the cover.
i even used alcohol inks to colour my frozen charlotte doll!! and a piece of tinsel for her crown!
