Life is beautiful with WOW! powders

This altered project was just a wooden base with a hole that I found at home, a 10 cent kids plastic magnifing glass and a fantastic A2Z Scraplets title (it's the little things). From all of those I made  this lovely altered art piece, but it couldn't  be done withou those gorgeous WOW! Embossing Powders I used over it.


The wooden base was covered with Glitz paper layers . The title was inked, clear embossed with Clear Regular powder , layer after layer to make it glossy and glass look and then I made a random stamping over it.

Wow embossing Copper powder was  the main coverage of the plastic glass. Easy to make : just add some Watermark embossing ink randomly over it , spread the powder and heat it. Nothing happens to plastic, believe me.  Then I added some Tim Holtz Picket fence  crackled paint  over my  embossed Copper powder and Blue embossing powder over it while the paint was still  wet.


The 7 Gypsies silver spoon was colored into the copper color with alcohol inks and I added this Tim Holtz sticker to say that small things Create Life.

The background wings were molded and casted with clear Ice Resim and I added Blue glitter inside the resin casting. The white chipboards from Tando Creative were painted and glittered with Clear glitter  to make the front wings, the bird was also painted  white and heat embossed with White embossing powder , then  painted over it with some blue paint, as well as Prima pink floweer brach. I covered the square base with woodgrain washi tape  and  I added this Glitz Life is Beautiful sticker on the front.
As my final touch the brass owl from Handmade Halo was added for the life wisdom and I also connected a 7 Gypsies charm to the spoon. To keep this title in the right position I used 3 kitchen tooth picks and a lot of hot glue.
 I enter this to Moxie Fab gift challenge, as this is a great altered gift after all
