Hello. It's Anna here with my next inpiration for Melissa Frances. Do You like 1 dollar shops? I love visiting them and finding some ugly stuff with a hidden potencial. I give them new life by adding paint and embellishments.
Today I want to show You bricks with word "love". They were all separate and red with ugly crackings.
I glued them together creating a brick tower. The next step was to cover the red color by apllying three layers of heavy gesso. You can also use white acrylic paint.
I added some white embossing with a honeycomb stamp and some pink splatters.
I painted Melissa Frances wood elements with gesso too because I want to achieve this subtle, shabby look.
I also added a lot of flowers.
I was really fun project to make and I still have few findings to upcycle :)
Have a good day and thank You for stopping by.
