We are so excited today to be a part of the Magical Mysteries Blog Hop!!! A special thanks to Rita Barakat and Emerald Creek for being the hosts of this fabulous hop!! If you came here from the ever so talented Cathy then you are on the right track! If not you will want to start at the beginning of the hop HERE. Today friends, we are making some fabulous Dia de Muertos (Day of the Dead) Succulent Planters.
Who wants to learn how to make these cute little guys??? Well you are in luck! Below is a tutorial that was recorded live on FB! We are sure you are have many questions. And we have many answers! But first lets talk about how amazing these embossing powders are shall we?
First off we take our hats off to Emerald Creek for all of the amazing products that they have! You know us, we try many different products and only use what we love. And we LOVE Emerald Creek! They are hands down the best company out there. The color and texture is amazing. The ability to apply layer upon layer is fantastic, and the way that our projects turn out each and every time that we use them leaves us in awe... It really is the finishing touch to any and all projects! Now to add the Magical Mysteries Collection by Rita Barakat is just brilliant!
We loved each and every color that is in this collection! Of course we are just a little biased to the Fairy Wings Pink and the Fairy Wings Blue (LOL). To make a Day of the Dead Planter here is a list of things that you will need.
* Terra Cotta Planter Pot (any size)
* DecoArt Snow White Acrylic Paint
*Foam Paint Brush
*The Magical Mysteries Embossing Powders
*The Magical Mysteries Fairy Wings Kit
*Zig Embossing Pens
*Black Sharpie (fine tip and regular)
We had such an amazing time creating these fun planters today! We hope that you enjoy them as much as we did. Be sure to watch the tutorial to see how to create your very own Day of the Dead Succulent Planters using the fabulous Rita Barakat Magical Mysteries embossing powders from Emerald Creek.
Next up is the crazy talented Freddie click HERE for more fun! Also don't forget to you have a chance to win Rita's entire line- Magical Mysteries (four individuals) and the Fairy Wings kit together is over $60.00!! Check out Emerald Creek and Rita Barakat!!! Whoop Whoop! Enjoy your week!
