Hello ISBG Fans

Today I´m here to show you a coat hanger with 4 mini layouts.
It is so fun to work with the kit Sunkissed


Here is how I did it (a lot of pictures).


First I took a baby coat hanger in wood. I covered it with this tape called paint strip from a regular hardware store.


Then it´s time to cover it all with Gesso. After the gesso is on you can now put on decorations like chipboard words.  I normally do that but not on this one.


Now it´s time to cover it all with metal tape. Do that in small pieces.  Make sure you put them a little on top of each other. After every piece tape you take a bone folder and press it down on the tape edges.


Done so far.  As you can see in this picture above, the tiny squares from the paint strip are shown a lot.


Now the messy and fun part begins! :-)   Start to cover it all with black acrylic paint. And before the paint is dry, you take some paper and wipe it off, so you have to be quick.  Then you just add the colors you want. It is easiest to use sprays and wax...but anything goes. 

Then you make as many mini layouts as you want. I just made 4 on this one. Here you can see some close up pictures.


 I can´t tell you enough how much I love the paper from this kit. They are so easy to work with since they are thick and double-sided.


There is so much you can cut out from the both butterfly and feather, and the rose.


To connect the mini layouts I used one of the beautiful ribbons that is in the kit.


Here you can see the beautiful kit.  This kit is just simply a `must have`!  :-)

Don´t forget to show us what you make of these kits in our group on Facebook

We would love to see your work!
