Flamingo- mixed media project

 Sometimes I get inspiration from the strangest of things. DecoArt, which I love by the way, had a video on facebook about a table makeover. The black gold and pink, would not go over in my house, but I thought it would be a fun color combo for a mixed media project. My best friend, fellow crafter, Pam had to have a medical procedure this week that had her in a lot of pain. She said standing on one leg was for the flamingos. I told her that I was going to do something with flamingos. So that is the back story for this project.

Here is a photo of the table.

I had some music dp that my daughter bought at our local scrapbook store before they closed, and they have been closed for about 8 years now, so It has been in my stash for awhile. I took a circle of card board and glued the music dp to it. I used Deco Art Metallic Lustre around the edges and smeared it on the dp. I have had this gold rush metallic lustre for several years and use it all the time.

I like how you don't have to be very "careful" and precise when applying the
metallic lustre. It looks good with just a quick swipe here and there.

 Some punched hearts, alphabet stamps, die cuts, word die punched black and white for piano, cheesecloth, ribbon sequins and white paint splatters, and last but not least the wiggle eye for the flamingo.

Pam, this project really was singing to me. I hope you get to feeling better soon!!!!!!!
