Assemblage Lamp recycled altered art tutorial

I had so much fun creating this piece! I used DecoArt products & some recycled upcycled goodies that would have ended up in the trash so I felt good about that. I used a salsa jar, a burned out lightbulb & a metal base from something my husband de-constructed in his scrapping (metal time.
All this fun in one project!
I started with the jar...I used some brown paper from a grocery bag & stamped onto it using some Memento ink then I distressed it with some Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays. Then I used some DecoPage to adhere the paper to the jar. I stippled some DecoArt Media Black Gesso to the lid of the jar & the base & then rubbed it with DecoArt Metallic Luster in several colors. I then made a "socket" from polymer clay for my bulb to set in(this has a battery operated light in it) & I also poured some resin wings. For the final touch I added the paper butterflies which I also made from some printed images.

Feel free to follow along with the tutorial. Here it is all lite-up! I love the way it turned out!
Thank you so much for joining me today & stay tuned because I have loads more to share over the upcoming weeks...Till Next Time!

With a Bit of Luck! Amazing Casting Products DT Project for March

 Hi everyone, Lyn here again with a fun & easy project just in time for St. Patrick's Day. A perfect table decoration or you can hang it on the wall. Just a garage sale frame, a few bit of table scatter & a couple of Amazing Casting Resin embellishments & your ready to go!

First I made a mold of a plastic coin with Amazing Mold Putty & then filled it with Amazing Casting Resin with a bit of Alumilite Dye in black.

I then started with some left over tissue paper(from, I sprinkled a bit of alcohol for the dots. Then I stamped & embossed it with some gold embossing powder.
Now for the good part...First off I did this on aluminum foil not only to protect my table but also to give the piece another layer of Sparkle...I love Sparkle! Then to the tissue paper I drizzled some Amazing Clear Cast, added some of the Table Scatter, Glitter & then topped it with the picture frame glass & let it cure.

What a great way to display your favorite piece of St. Patty's Day jewelry!
