Happy New Year! We are excited about 2013 as we have alot to share!! Creative Imaginations has a very special announcement to make that you don't want to miss! Check back here tomorrow for our big news!
Now onto a very special New Years project by dt member, Jules!
Although we seldom make midnight, we do have a New Year's Eve traditon. We invite a few couples over for cocktails and then we all go out some place nice for dinner. I like to have something festive on the table to greet our guests and to help issue in the new year.
I bought the essentials at a party store: the hat, the noise maker, the spray of stars and the mask. Using the IOD Paint It! paper, Viva Colour Inka Gold Metallic Rub in Old Silver and the Viva Colour Pearl Pen in black, I took these stanard New Year's Eve decorations and kicked them up a notch to create a pretty and easy center piece.
I applied the Viva Colour Inka Gold Metallic Rub (Old Silver) with my finger tips on to pieces cut from the paper. Using a soft cloth, I rubbed the color into the paper and was so happy with the vintag-y glow that resulted. I pleated a strip of this to place behind the mask, added a big black fun flower and the tie ribbons, and then rubbed the excess from the cloth onto the stars to give more color to the silver.
for the hat brim, I cut out a section of the paper, used the Viva Colour Inka Gold Metallic Rub and then highlighted it with Viva Colour Pearl Pens in Cream and Black. After these dried, I put the band on the hat and attached the front piece.
To finish off the centerpiece, I rubbed the Viva Colour Inka Gold Metallic Rub in Old Silver onto some grunge board numbers. The more I rubbed with the soft cloth, the deeper the color and the prettier it became.
I hope this new year finds you happy, prosperous and creative. Have a good one!
