Project #4 ~ Metal Flowers

We bought this metal wall hanging at a flea market in PA a few years ago. It is about 2’ x 2’ in size and has been hanging on my wall for years –with absolutley no color – ( other than the plain cream background) I decided it was finally time to MIST, GLAM and GLAZE it up!

Here is the "BEFORE"

Close Up of "the way they were!"

 I got out my paint brushes – again – I am so in LOVE with PAINTING with GLIMMER MIST and I had a blast on this project!!!!! I used the following colors: Glimmer Mist – APPLE (my new favorite- but this changes weekly, I must admit!) BRICK, WALNUT GOLD. Glimmer GLAM – DIRTY MARTINI, BE POSITIVE, ESSPRESSO BEAN. Glimmer GLAZE – WICKED, MELLOW YELLOW, ORANGE CRUSH, INDIAN SUMMER.

The "finished" product - what do you think?  a little better?

Look at all the Glimmer!! - Just YUMMY!!

I have to say – my favorite part of this is the flower on the lower right. I was trying to get it to look like a sunflower – and I am so happy with how it turned out.

What do you think?  Do you have anything that needs a little sparkle?  So - then get out your paintbrush and "have at it!"  What are you waiting for???
