ALTERED CAKE BASE BOARD

Hello friends Welcome back to my blog!! Am posting after a long time as I was busy with my one year old baby. Since this is the birthday season in our house we bought cakes to celebrate them. After consuming the cake the base board of the cake was very sturdy that it resembled a circular canvas. So altered it to a mixed media layout. 



I cleaned the base board using a wet cloth and then applied thick coats of gesso. For textures I scrunched the butter paper pieces ( tissue paper ) and pasted using glue Then applied some random textures using texture paste and stencils. I used diluted alcohol ink  and color shine sprays of teal , yellow and green color. Distressed the edges using brown ink and glued scraps of paper from DCWV paper pack. Stamped the sentiment , clock and tape. Decorated the layout using handmade flowers , pearls, beads and lace. 


Since my baby has started to move she is pulling everything from my craft table.Since most of the mixed media supplies are toxic and harmful I don't craft much these days. But will try my best to post as often as possible. 


 See you soon with another interesting post. Do share your comments/suggestions.
