Shaker dome tutorial -for itsy bitsy(mothers day special )

Hello dear Crafters!!!

This gives me extreme delight to share with u all my experience, experiments, trials with the absolute amazing new launch! This is Little Birdie ‘Gold Alcohol Splash’ colour spray.

These little bottles of gold portion I must say are like must must have in your craft stash esp. if you are someone like me ,who loves mix media or someone who just loves gold (I mean which gal doesn’t :P)

Btw This is my first guest post on the blog and I’m super nervous. (So please excuse me for the mistakes).

Today I’m sharing an absolute favorite project of mine these days, i.e. 3D dome with the magic of alcohol sprays! And it’s a dedication to my pretty mom, a special gift for this MOTHER’S DAY.

So before digging in the details of how to make it let’s check out what we are going to make.

So let’s begin.
Step 1: Take the burlap panel –this is an absolute perfect base because it has so much texture to it and its sheen at the end is just amazing.

The stencils are  of amazing quality and  are super durable that’s what I love about these beauties.

Step 2: I have stenciled using the modeling paste from Mont marte and used 3 different stencils to create depth (don’t forget to cover the sides) and heat set it.

Step 3 : I used just 2 sprays and could achieve gradients and also 3 shades on the panel.

Few things to remember:
·They dry very quick
·They leave a golden sheen behind after each spray on the project which is gorgeous

·These are  fabulous to colour the flowers to match your projects. I did a few for this project

·  These colors can be blended with Sponge Blenders and diluted with Alcohol Blending Solution. 
    Step 4 : So now it’s time to make the center focus.
I used the  water brush and water colours to colour the image (This is just a reference picture.

Step 5 : Then I stuck the picture to the canvas and before which I cut it to the exact size of the dome using the silicon glue.

Step 6 : Now stick the flower and add some shaker elements to the center of the picture (put loads, more the merrier) 
now using the silicon glue fix the dome over the picture and allow to dry completely …..Its takes a while but until then don’t move the panel.

Step 7 : Finish by adding peals and flowers around the dome as per your choice. Use silicon glue and  fix the dome over the picture and allow to dry completely …..Its takes a while but until then don’t move the panel.

Step 8 : To add the final touch add the foiled sentiment from the mother’s day collection

Just to help u understand how the shaker looks 

So yeah ! we are done.
hope you enjoyed the tutorial.
