Hi, Vicky blogging today.
This month I decided to create something a little different –
some shabby chic fridge magnets made with fabulous Dusty Attic chipboard.
Here is a quick tutorial on how I created them:
STEP 1 – I used the Moroccan Accents set DA0837 and randomly dabbed them with gesso.
STEP 2 – I used Cranberry acrylic paint DA0910 on 4 pieces, and Dusty Pink acrylic paint DA0907 on 4 pieces (I did not paint the 4 smaller pieces).
STEP 3 – I topped the 8 painted pieces with Clear Crackle Varnish DA0900 and simply glued some chunky glitter glass to the 4 smaller pieces (without covering the very middle so I could add a gem there later on).
STEP 4 – I layered and glued my pieces together, including a magnet to the back of them (magnets from my local dollar store). Lastly, I added a gem to the middle.
Hope you like them!
