A few of the bloggers this week are new to hopping, so if you have an issue with any of the links, here's a little tip! If you get a page that says "Sorry that Page is not here" or something similar, try clicking on the header of the blog, or look for something that says Home. The hop page should be near the top of the day's posts. We will fix broken links as the day goes on, as well, so check back here if you are really lost.
The Official Rules are here.
----------------------------------

Finally a step by step


I've cut a tag from corrugated cardboard, ripped pieces of paper off and sprayed directly onto the cardboard with my homemade spray paints.


I applied some Media Modeling Paste with a pallet knife and Frantage embossing enamel on top.


The modeling paste works as a connector and holds the powders onto the cardboard. Normaly you heat these powders from underneath, but the cardboard is too thick. With the modeling paste as a connector you can heat from above with a low blow heat gun but you have to start 8" away and slowly going down to melt the powders.


The paste also starts to bubble while heating and this gives a nice texture, too


I also used a mix of Media Translucent white and water in a spray bottle




I stamped the dress form on a manila tag and used the gold embossing powders out of the white frantage kit on top. The vintage lady is a laser printed image from the internet which i've glued behind the dress form and on the tag with Media Matte Medium


I've glued down some flowers and a laser cut wing. Painted the empty spaces between the skirt with a brush and the white mix out of the bottle


The little angel started white and had a spray treatment with the same colours as the background and i did the same with the cheesecloth


The quote is computer generated with Triple Thick on top and had a touch of Metallic Lustre gold rush. I finished with black paint around the edges


Well.... my crafty friends, i appreciate your patience to stay the course (:o)
Finally i have one more exiting news for you. Also up for grabs exclusively on the DecoArt International Design Team Blog posts is a chance to win this one off piece of artwork from Andy Skinner who will choose one winner from the comments on our blog posts on Thursday and will announce the winner on his Facebook page on Friday.
