DIY Baby Room Decor with Tattered Angels Stained Glass Paint

With a new little one on the way, how will the room be decorated?  Maybe a mural on the wall, fun art or how about a mobile made with handmade art?  This dimensional art piece is a standout when it comes to baby room decor and it sets this little one’s space apart from any other baby’s room and we love that.  Crew Member Viktoriya Porechnaya shows us how Tattered Angels Stained Glass Paints are the prefect choice for these baby art pieces that make the perfect mobile, wind chime or modern art piece.  
If you are not familiar with the Stained Glass Paints here is what you need to know: they tint glass, plastic and clear or light objects a beautiful sheer color but they can also be used to make objects like these sheer decor pieces or they can be poured into a mold to create objects.  The paints dry sheer in a thin coat or when poured into a mold.  The results are truly beautiful and when the sun hits them…oh my.

Step 2 – Place pictures under a plastic folder cover and draw the contours using dimensional paint. I use gold and pearlescent contours for the moon and stars. Let it dry for about an hour.

So the pieces are sketched, outlines, painted, fussy cut and hung by the sticks with care to watch over baby and put love in the air.  Oh how they twinkle during the day and sparkle a little the rest of the way.  To see more of Viktoriya’s work, visit her blog  and follow her on Instagram

About

I am a military wife, a stay at home mom (my children give me wonderful pictures to scrap with), 2 boys and 2 girls. My first love is my family, they mean everything to me. My second love is crafting, especially scrapbooking, but I also love DIY, cards, mixed media, and to alter items. I guess if you had to label my style it would be layered, romantic, shabby chic, mixed media, and pop art. I have been called the Queen of Layers!! I love to teach in person and on-line to educate others in my love for this craft.
