Altered Embroidery Hoop for Gina's Designs Lasercuts

 Good morning friends! Today I would like to share my altered embroidery hoop with you. I have had this idea for a while and finally got to bring it to life!  I started off by painting the hoop white and adding some gorgeous beaded lace around the edge. The back piece is some Bo Bunny paper I had in my stash. I layered sprays, stencils and stamps to give it a grungy feel.
 The butterfly of gears is one of my all time favorite pieces of Gina's! I first painted it and then used some rust Gilders Paste over it. I then used my script stamp on top.  I added a Prima junkyard finding lamp for the center of the body.
 I did the same basic technique for the Chain Frame, but used Silver Gilder's Paste this time and some fine black embossing powder to finish it off.
I layered on some metal, flowers and used some old paint brushes I had as well. This gives those old bushes that you would normal toss out a second lease on life. I added some paint and stamp to them as well to pick up on the background of the piece.
I hope you like my piece this week, I always have fun using Gina's chippys!
Thanks for stopping by!
