hello guys, today I am going to show you an altered Tablet case using the gorgeous Andy new stamp and the wonderful DecoArt Media Misters.
My Tablet cover had been all dirty after my gesso-dirty hands touched it all over in my workshops. Hub was complaining how ugly and embarrassing it was and I decided I should alter it to make it better.
I primed the surface with a thin coat of DecoArt Gesso. and then I started using DecoArt Media Misters to spray on the surface repeatedly on random area.
Please let me remind you again the awesome DecoArt Media Misters. you can click to watch this short but very informative video by Andy HERE.
You can see what colors of the Misters I have used on the end of this post. Any colors will make it super beautiful, you only need to have the basic color chart in your mind (eg red+blue = purple, yellow+blue=green) because the misters are highly interactive and they make amazing, out of the world beautiful colors for your creation.
After putting on the colors, the whole surface was very very bright. I could take it as it was but I wanted it to be a tone lighter. So I applied a small amount of DecoArt Media Shimmer Misters White to do the job.
On the top of the Misters, I used the latest Andy Skinner stamp sets fm Illusionary Artists and stamped them with the white color Staz On on the surface.
I used the Tech Trauma set as the main as I really like the designs !
Final step we cannot forget is to add two coats of DecoArt Media Soft Touch Varnish after the misters has completely dried. As the tablet will be carried and used in outdoors, you dont want it to stain the table cloth when you are having dinner with your friends !! :D
I hope you enjoy this project and I hope this inspires you to start your own !
