Altered Art--with Keren Tamir

Hi Everyone,
Its Keren here with two altered projects for the Blue Fern Studios blog.

For my first project I created a pair of mermaid shadow boxes by altering two 6x6  canvases. I have a step by step video tutorial below to show you how I created them.

Here is the step by step video tutorial below:

I used two 6x6 canvases and reversed them to create the shadow box effect.
I love creating these type of projects as they are perfect for displaying on a mantlepiece.

I used the Seaside Cottage collection and various embossing powders and glitters to embellish these canvases.

I used real shells and starfish as embellishments and even added some netting to make it look as if it is under the sea.


My second project this month is an altered paint brush.

I took a wide old paint brush and embellished it using many different types of chipboard pieces. 

I took a wide old paint brush and embellished it using many different types of Blue Fern Studios chipboard .

I used pieces from the following chipboard sets: Cogs and Gears, Moving Parts, Roman Clock and Wind up.
I also used one of the Tattered Butterflies as the focus and then I cut the chipboard word Heart to get the word Art. It was perfect for this piece and I still have the word "he" for another project.

The chipboard and paint brush was first covered in black gesso and then embossed with the following Blue Fern Studios embossing powders: Peacock, 14 Karat, Heavenly and Magenta.
Finally I added some touches of gold paint to fill in the areas where the embossing powders could not reach.

Thank you so much for visiting the Blue Fern Studios Blog
Have a wonderful day!!
