Re-vamped Phone Cover by Gabrielle Pollacco
Hi all, it's Gabrielle here with you today to share a makeover I gave to an old phone cover. My youngest daughter got a brand new phone a few months back and promptly lost/got it stolen when she was using a public washroom. So she then inherited my oldest daughters cast off phone. To cheer her up, I thought I'd fancy up the old phone case that was on it for her.
Here is a pic of the old phone cover....I think it even has a few bite marks in it from our naughty dog! But that was no problem, I just gave the phone case a quick brushing with some Gesso....when that dried I used some heavy gel paste with BoBunny's 'Brocade' Stickable Stencil over random sections of the surface. I left part of it flat/untextured so that I could add a bit of the Penny Emporium patterned paper as well.
Once the texture paste was dry, I gave the whole thing a coat of Chocolate Pearlescents, adding a streak of Graphite Pearlescents here and there, to give a nice brushed metalic look to it. The decorating was easy-peasy, I just added a few chipboard cogs and then layered on some pieces from the Penny Emporium Layered Chipboard packet. The final touch was to add some gems from the Double Dot Mocha Jewels packet. The phone cover put a big smile on my daughters face!
