Prima Wall Art Submission

Oh my, I was down to the wire on this one! :) In case you didn't know, Prima Marketing is having a "Wall Art" contest, and one of the items on the list that you could use was one of the new Prima DIY chandeliers, so that's what I made. First, here's the gallery wall in it's entirety:


Table top view.


I love all things beachy. It is my most favorite decor theme!

Besides the chandelier, I also made each project, mostly using Prima products, which I have already shared in previous blog posts.

So, for this chandelier, my main idea was to replace the "lights" with shells, and give it a bluish patina wash. 

Here's a couple of different pictures of the whole project.

I started out painting the chandelier with some VerDay paint, and then I added some gold crackle in random spots.  I then dry brushed the entire thing with white gesso, then I gave it a good spraying session with the color bloom sprays in deep teal, light teal, and glistening waves.  I also added some pearl strands from my stash, and well as some Prima Calcutta flowers I have been saving for a special project. 



I added the shells and then some art stones, both sizes, and dry brushed those with gesso, and then sprayed them with the color bloom spray in empress gold. Here's a couple more closeups of the shells:




Lastly, I added the Prima chandelier adornments. They were clear, but I decided to give them a beach glass finish, again using the blue color bloom sprays. 


Thanks for checking out my entry for the Prima Wall Art contest!

Gorgeous!! Did you have to prime with anything before spraying color bloom on the crystals for your beach glass effect?

I got the sea glass effect by adding the color bloom sprays to some Elmer's school glue. I used a mixture of the soft teal and glistening waves sprays. :)
