Boho Lantern for Daily ART

Hello everyone!

April is a month full of flowers and bright colors. This time we had a Boho-Gypsy theme over at Daily ART, a true celebration of Nature and its beauty!

I was very much inspired by the warm reds and yellows and wanted also to bring in some of that vintage touch, I always love to give to my projects.

I have dozens of IKEA ROTERA lanterns at home, to decorate my balcony during the summer….Who doesn’t? JJJ

So, I only had to put all that into one project…

…my Boho Lantern

As you will see in the video, for this project I went with Daily ART Glossy Ink Sprays, that come in many beautiful and very bright colors. I used them to stain the lantern’s glasses and that really made them look like handmade stained glass.

For the lantern, I used Vintage paint, which is an all-surface acrylic paint with a very good grip and needs no prepping. 

I applied it with a foam brush, which helped me create a texture very similar to forged metal. All that texture was beautifully accented with Patinas in dark and light silver tones.

To take it one step further, I used this incredibly gorgeous steel die by Kaisercraft, called “Sari Texture”, and created the decorative mesh on the stained glasses.

I had such a great fun with this project! Now, I’m going to alter all my lanterns and give a Moroccan look to my balcony!!!

Hope you like it too and give it a try!

Thank you for visiting my blog!

Until next time,

Be Brave, Be Who You Want to Be!
