One Powerful Hour - Cubes





The delightful Caroline over at One Powerful Hour asked me to be be guest host this week so I chose the theme Cubes. I love having six sides to decorate, whether I have them hanging or sitting on a shelf. The main photos show the cube I made for a swap on Zuzu's forum for National Foof Day on 2 February. It is made from a 3 inch blank board cube, painted with Lumiere Pearl Turquoise paint with an overcoat of Stewart Gill Glitterati in Copper. The images are from a sheet available for download free from Digital Collage Sheets The edges of each facet have been triple embossed in bronze UTEE, the hanger is beads strung on ribbon and the dangler is made from a bead and tassel both in my stash. The ribbon hanger and dangler are attached with screw in eyelets as even though the cube is hollow the board is very sturdy.


This cube was sprayed with glimmer inks and stamped and embossed


This is distress ink and stamping



This is various red acrylic paints, the music and images transfers.
