Conversation Heart Cell Phone Cover Tutorial

Aaahhhh!!! I am so excited. I have my first Guest Blogger Tutorial to share with you today.

Adiel from It's Because I think Too Much has done our tutorial for us. Adiel is a twenty-something woman originally from the Salt Lake City area of Utah. She moved to the San Francisco Bay Area in 2009 for a job in social shopping--a perfect fit for such a social-media enthusiast and shopaholic!

She likes rings, pleats, polka dots, stripes, lace, mascara, and bright lip colors. She also loves to wear bold jewelry, pretty dresses, and sky-high heels. Quirky and whimsical accessories make her happy.

Materials Needed:
Old phone case
Acrylic paints in dove grey, pastel pink, pastel green, pastel yellow, and pastel purple
One sponge brush
At least two paint brushes in assorted sizes
Red letter stickers
Mod Podge Gloss

Step 1: Use the sponge brush to paint thin coats of dove grey all over the phone case. Let each coat dry before painting the next one. Continue until you reach the desired opacity. 

Step 2: Use the pink paint to paint a large heart in the center of the case. Using all pastel paints, randomly paint hearts all over the case. If you paint incomplete hearts along the edges, the effect will be better. 

Step 3: Use your stickers to apply your desired conversation heart phrase. I chose "Be Mine" but you can do any of the old standbys; "True Love" "Sweet Talk" "I'm Yours" etc...

Step 4: Use a large paint brush to coat the entire case with Mod Podge in two to three layers, letting each dry in between.

Voila! You've just made your own custom conversation heart case!
