ATC Shrine by Debbie & Decorative Screen by GDT Rashida

Hello everyone today we have some dual projects up by one of our newest DT Debbie, and a gorgeous decorative screen from our Guest Designer Rashida.  First up is Debbie!

  Hello Everyone! Today I would like to share my version of Gina’s Designs Artist Trading Card Shrines.  I LOVE these!!!   These are such a great idea and take Trading Cards to the next level.  Not only do you have a great Trading Card but have an amazing Shrine to display it in. I can see myself giving a few of these as gifts.

I kept this project pretty simple by applying Inka Gold over the shrine itself and then adhering a Gina’s Designs Chipboard Fairy to the outside front.  I added a crystal knob to the top and metal photo corners to the front, both from my personal stash.
To make the Gina’s Designs Chipboard Fairy stand out a bit I painted her and then embossed her with a glitter white embossing powder. I rubbed a little Inka Gold over her and added some crystals.
When you open the Shrine you’ll find a fun vile of Fairy Dust and another Chipboard Fairy.  I also added a small Chipboard Butterfly and some more crystals.  I used the same techniques on the fairy and butterfly as the front fairy.
I hope you enjoyed this project and will give them a try…they are so much fun and I’ll be making more of these!
Thanks for stopping by!
Supplies Used:

Now over to Rashida to share her project.....

Hello everyone! Today I’m going to share my next project for Gina’s Designs. This week I had fun working with Gina’s Designs Decorative Screens. I especially enjoyed this project because when I saw them I immediately though of layers, flowers, metal and paint….my favorite things to work with.

 For the background I painted the screens black and then layered them with Recollections multi- surface ink in both black and vintage gold. Next I layered on Snow Tex and let it dry overnight. Once dry I sprayed the whole thing with Tattered Angles glimmer mist in Summer Glow, Yellow Zest and Ranger butterscotch color wash spray.

 Once that was dry I began layering Gina’s Designs butterflies and dragonflies, which I glittered and stacked, wire, K & Co swirls and gems, trims and flowers. I then added a Prima accent piece to the center screen and tied each piece together to create the finished 3 panel screen.
That’s about it, super simple and loads of fun! Thanks so much for looking, be sure to stop by Gina’s shop to pick up a few to try out.
