Altered Photo ART by Becky Conley

Hello All!
Are your photos flat? Let's jazz them up!
I'm in mixed-media HEAVEN! I printed one of my garden photos and altered it with SAKURA products and Sparkraft "outline" stickers.

This photo doesn't do the original art any justice, you have to see it in person to appreciate it's glory. The reflection of light on the Gem Particles is AMAZING.

3d Clear Crystal Lacquer
3d Color Crystal Lacquer: Black
Gem Particles: Raspberry Iridescent, Peacock Green and Blue Flash

Other Supplies:
Canson Canva-Paper 12x16", Sparkraft dragonfly outline stickers, Matte finish Spray Sealant

1. The Canva-Paper is textured like canvas! Print the photo and heat-set to hurry the process if you are impatient like me! Then spray with a matte finish to seal the inks.
2. Apply the dragonfly "outline" stickers, apply 3d Clear Crystal Lacquer to the wing areas and sprinkle with Gem Particles. (Blue Flash and Peacock Green) Remove the excess, then fill in the body and head area with 3d Black Color Crystal Lacquer. Let dry.
3. Brush the flowers with a thin layer of 3d Clear Crystal Lacquer, sprinkle Raspberry Iridescent Gem Particles to the center areas only. Let dry and remove excess.

Thank you so much for stopping by, please become a follower for more inspiration and project ideas.
