It's time for this months challenge over at Altered Eclectics...where did April go?
My project this month is my spectacle case...yes, I am actually using it...lol
I have several pairs for different things, so several cases and as I've never altered one before, I thought I would give it a go.
I sanded the case down and then gave it two coats of white gesso..leaving it overnight to dry completely.
Using pale pink acrylic paint I gave the case 2 coats..due to the lighting, the pink looks more lilac in the photo..in real life its a lovely dusky pink.
I added the trim to the lid, then added the ribbon and pearly gem.
I love they way it looks, not too fussy but still special...
Hope to see you over at Altered Eclectics this month...
