A Delightfully Altered Cell Phone Cover

Do you have some everyday items that just don’t look new anymore?  Why not add some paint to them and see what you can create?  That is exactly what Sanna Lippert did with her not so new phone case. She spruced it up and made it look like new and now it is personalized just for her!

I had a yellow leather mobile cover that was not that yellow anymore. I had taken the cover off my mobile phone and was just about to toss is and then I got the idea to alter it. Why not apply some Decor & DIY Saffron paint onto the surface and just see what happens!!! And so I did!! This is a result of that experiment. I had fun dabbing bright yellow paint onto the cover and then of course had to add ink splatters too. I am now excited to see how long this surface lasts. If not, there is is nothing to loose, since I was going to toss it anyway. If it lasts long, I´ll be happy to use this cover for a long time!

DIY Cell Phone Cover

Since the old mobile phone cover was leather based, I directly added the DECOR & DIY paint (Saffron) onto the cover. I dabbed two layers with a foam brush and let the surface dry in between layers.

The the paint to relatively dry, I added some black and white texture spray splatters as well as green and blue Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and Chalkboard ink splatters.

As those are water based, I had to add a layer of spray varnish on top to keep the splatters from bleeding.

Finally I took a piece of old book paper and stamped a light bulb and a word “create” with black ink onto that paper. Next I fussy cut the pieces and adhered to the mobile phone cover with Matte Medium. I finished the cover with a second layer of spray varnish and let if to dry properly before using it.
