Mixed Media Crown - I Should Live In A Castle

Hello!  Today, I am back to share another mixed media project with you using more of the New Media Mixage™ line products from Spellbinders Creative Arts™.

This is a little ceramic crown wall hanging that I altered.  I found the crown at Hobby Lobby a few weeks back and as soon as I saw it I knew exactly how I wanted to alter it.

Here is a before picture of the crown.

Here is a close up of the MB1-006S Shields One-Silver bezel before I attached it to the crown.  I started by  die cutting a piece of the F-014 Delicate Pastels Premium Craft Foil using the Artisan X-plorer™ and MD1-006 Shields One die template.  Then I wanted to add some texture to the foil so I used the MT1-007 Interlock texture plate.  When using the texture plates and the craft foil place a piece of wax paper in between the texture plate and the foil for easy removal of the foil.  Next I lightly sanded the foil and then I glue it in to the bottom of the MB1-006S Shields One-Silver bezel.  Then I fussy cut the word blocks and glued them in place and I also glued the crown brad at the top.  I used and old typewriter font for the word blocks and I cut the back prongs off of the brad.  After the glue was dry then I added the ICE Resin®, pearls and crystals.   I let the bezel sit over night so the ICE Resin® could harden and then I glued on the vintage lace trim.

I used E6000 adhesive to glue the bezel on to the crown.

To finish off the crown I added more vintage lace and Recollections bling.

I hope you are enjoying seeing some of my new projects with the new  Media Mixage™ product line from Spellbinders Creative Arts™.  I know I am having so much fun creating with all of the fun new products.  ;-)
