I'm always on the look-out for something to alter, I spotted this sad looking lamp in the charity shop for £3.
I started by taking off the trim and covered the lamp shade with old dresspattern tissue paper and acrylic matt medium.
At this point I didn't know what colours to use, so I thought I would do a try-out on a small canvas first (I'm not normally that cautious).
I used low tac tape to hold the stencil PS002 round the curve of the shade and dabbed on neat Dusty Teal and Baltic Blue with a stencil brush.
I used PaperArtsy's cutting die Bloom 1 to cut felt flowers (cuts through a dream!) and made paper rosettes (Tim Holtz Alterations dies).
Leandra Says: what a gorgeous colour combo, and it really like you off set shadow blocks on the JOFY flowers. Lots of great inspiration here that could be used on cards as well as interior decor items! Great week Penny!
Gillian Says: I'm really enjoying your home decor inspired projects this week Penny. How beautiful would these pieces look within a white washed room. Can you tell my thoughts are by the sea lol!
