Teach Me Tuesday - Creative Coloring

Hello MBT Fans,
It's Tuesday and you know what that means here at MB's Treasurista, that's right! Another Teach Me Tuesday Tutorial. First we've got a beautiful birdcage by Pernilla Svalborg. Then Deb Edwards takes you step by step through creative coloring. It's amazing what you can create when you let your imagination run wild! 

Here is what Pernilla has to say about this cute birdcage.

Hello peeps!
I want to show you a bird cage that I altered.

It started with a holder for a small candle, but I tucked the bird inside the cage instead. It was also white to start with, some acrylic paint and voila :) It's a sand acrylic paint and I mixed a turquoise pearl paint with the same sand acrylic and got a gorgeous green.That really made a difference and the rest is easy! I made some candy gem acrylic sprays cling to the bird cage in yellow and green. Then I hot glued some ruffled satin trim in celadon, which matched the color of my acrylic paint perfectly. I also had some flat back pearls in mint that went perfectly with the color palette. I wanted to make a nest inside the cage and twined some more of the candy gem sprays in yellow and green to act as twigs. As an egg, I used the water blue flat back 10mm, they also fitted perfectly in the middle of the flowers on the bird cage. The small sweetheart blossom was the perfect size and super sweet as I tucked it on the "inside". I added some acrylic chandelier charms to the chain and that's pretty much it :D


Next up is this wonderful coloring technique by Deb. She will show you how to customize any resin/cabochon embellishment. Want to learn how it was done? Follow along with Deb's fun video tutorial to create one for yourself! Take it away, Deb!
