Decorative Screen #GypsySoulLaserCuts

So excited to share my Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts project with you today. I used the Decorative Screen and Wood Medallions set. Inspired by the colors of Rita Barakat's, Midnight Magic mixed media embossing powder. You will see the embossing powder in the photos below, but first let's get started with the Decorative Screen.

First, with a damp paper towel I cleaned off the soot residue left behind by the laser cutter. Then I took the blue acrylic paint and I applied one coat to each panel and allowed to dry.

Applying the next three colors were the same technique; apply the paint with a dry brush sporadically, before it dried, I removed some of the paint with a paper towel. The paint colors are listed below.

I purchased 3/4" x 11/16" hinges from my local hardware store. I painted the hinges first with black chalk paint. Using a toothpick, I applied Power-Tac adhesive to the backside of the hinges. After the glue dried, I lightly painted them with brown acrylic paint for rust look.

So here is the color inspiration. It's from a mixed media heavy embossing powder made by Emerald Creek for Rita Barakat. It is called Midnight Magic and get this, it glows in the dark.
I applied a heavy coat of embossing ink and dusted the Wood Medallions with the embossing powder.

Here are the acrylic paints used. What do you think? Did I match up the colors to coordinate with the embossing powder?

Here is my Decorative Screen, it stands at 8" and is 15" width. It's gorgeous!

It folds nicely enough for storage.

Inspiration is everywhere! Look, get inspired and create!
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial and the final results. Enjoy your week and keep it crafty.
