Before I get to this current challenge, a couple of weeks ago I did my first Compendium of Curiosities Challenge with Eroded Metallic and posted my Eroded Metallic Tag.  I’m super excited that they choose me as the winner of that challenge.  WooHoo.  I also got a badge, which I have already placed on my blog and you can see it on the left side.

Here is my tag if you missed it.

NOW for Tim Holtz Compendium of Curiosity Volume III – Challenge 30, Faux Cracked Glass.

The sponsor for this challenge is The Funkie Junkie Boutique who is giving away a $25.00 shopping spree.

I really enjoyed my first challenge so of course I had to jump in again with this challenge.  To view this challenge, go HERE.  There are a few rules but if you are interest just go visit Linda Ledbetter’s website for all the details. You must own your own copy of A Compendium of Curiosity Volume III to participate.

For this challenge I did a Lantern painted patina style and used the Faux Cracked Glass technique on the glass sides.

The paint job is a technique I learned from Donna Dewberry with Plaid (the makers of Mod Podge), just click on her name will take you to her YouTube video.

The paint I used is Folkart Home Decor Chalk Paint: Cascade, Salmon Coral and Java.  I also used FolkArt Copper Metallic

I hope you liked my CC3C project.

  1. Wow Melissa…what a transformation of your lantern! I LOVE it! The chalk paint finish with the "rusty" additions looks so realistic! Your faux cracked glass pieces are perfection and such a perfect compliment to the rusted chalky finish of the lantern! Thanks for sharing with us at CC3C. <3 Candy

  2. Hey there, Melissa. My comment is so late (I'm sorry!) but I had to come back and leave you some love for this awesome project! Love the combination of techniques you've used here. Your lantern is gorgeous and it makes me want to go and pick up some iron and glass items I've seen and passed over. Now I know what to do with them!

  3. Hi Melissa…LOVE LOVE LOVE your lantern! What a cool fun piece. Love that you used Chalk paint on the outside as well…the faux cracked glass looks fabulous!!! Thanks for playing along with us at CC3C!
