Kevin and the girls got me an ATG for my birthday (they just didn't know it) I have been wanting one for a while thanks to all the enablers on the message boards :) I ordered it last week and it arrived yesterday. I spend last night spray painting it blue (because I don't like red at all) and then when it was dry this morning I decorated it. *OK let's face it, that's the real reason I wanted an ATG, not to save on adhesive, but so I could alter it!
Here's a before photo (stock photo):
And here is my ATG after (Kevin says I bedazzled it!)
I had to masked off everything I didn't want to be blue. I added rub-ons (which are glittery but don't show well in the photos) stamped the word Dream with opaque white Staz-on (which doesn't show well either) and I added light blue rhinestones in a swirl pattern on one side and a star burst pattern on the other side and a little on the handle. I haven't even had a chance to use it on a project yet. In fact I just loaded the tape right before I took the photos.
