Altered New Years Hat for Creative Embellishments!

Happy New Years folks!!!!  I hope you had a safe and beautiful beginning to this wonderful year ahead!!!  I'm popping in today because it's the first... Which means a new challenge over at Creative Embellishments!!!

Here's a look at this month's inspiration photo:

I found a chipboard hat at my local Michael's and decided to dress it up for New Years!  Here's a look:

LOVE these wings!!!  They are stunning!!!!
I picked up this paper mache hat at my local Michaels for about a $1.00!
I started by priming my hat and coating it with black glittered spray paint.  I used my Cricut Explore to make a stencil for a 3/4 inch circle.  I mixed up some silver glitter and molding paste and added it through the stencil around the hat for a circle pattern!  

I primed my chipboard wings, then used gold pigment ink to color them.  I spritzed them with Perfect Pearls mist in Gold for added shimmer and shine!

I finished the hat with some gold trim, some clocks by Tim Holtz, and Thickers "DIY" numbers sprinkled with the same silver glitter!

Well gang...  Thanks so much for stopping in!  Have a LUCKY day :-)
