Each month we will challenge our Design Team to create a project using five specific items. Such an open-ended challenge means that there is such a wide variety in what is created.
This month the 5 items to use were:
2. Metallic Gold Flakes
5. SIIC (Say it in crystal bling)
If this month’s 5 Item Challenge inspires you to create something don’t forget to share it with us!
“Hi everyone,I love Prima’s challenges and you? This time I created the assemblage with a lot of found objects and old brushes. As the base, I used simple cutting board. Using amazing mediums and the stencil I made the textured background. Then was only made the composition using moulds, chipboard, found objects, and amazing details – crystals. I hope you like my interpretation.” –Wuwu

“Hi there, Di Garling here with you today with my interpretation on the current “DT Challenge”.
This months challenge is to use….
#1. Altered Brush
#2. Metallic Gold Flakes
I started out with an old paintbrush, primed it with a couple of coats of white gesso & then coloured it up using some “Art Alchemy” Metallique paint in the colour “Gold”. Such a lovely rich colour. Next, up I then rubbed on lots & lots of “Art Alchemy” Wax Pastes in the colours of “Peacock”, “Mint Sparkle” & “Vintage Gold”.
My next step was to colour up two of the beautiful “Grungy Frames” moulds. Firstly I coloured them with “Art Alchemy” teal paint in the colour of “Emerald Green”, followed by brushing on some of the “Gold” metallique paint again, to show up all the gorgeous details on these frames.
I then proceeded to stick on both frames, some flowers both old & new, as well as some die cut pieces which I also painted in the “Gold” paint to match in with this beautiful colour scheme. I little gold foliage die cut was given a makeover using some of the wonderful “Art Ingredients” Fine Metallic Flakes in the colour of “Venice” for some added sparkle.
Until next time
Cheers Di Garling

“I like challenges very much, but this month the challenge was very easy and fun for me. Moulds? I can’t live without them! Teal color and gold? Needless to say, it’s a perfect combination. Altering brushes is pure relaxation, and SIIC is the icing on the cake of any project.” –Reniferove

“My first altered brush!
This time I wanted to create something flashy. That’s why I chose the PAINTED FLORAL collection for my project. Also, I used FINE METALLIC FLAKES by @finnabairstudio in my project. To get the teal color, I mixed two IMPASTO colors (jade+cobalt) together. It turned out so beautiful!” –Marina
