Pimp your iPhone

I had an old iPhone cover that started to look a bit shabby. I was going to get a new one but instead I got the idea to paint it with Martha Stewart Craft Paints to make it like new. These paints are great, I got a LOT of different shades and textures from Hobbyworld and I want to paint everything.


I picked one of the turqoise pearl paints and painted the whole cover a couple of times. After that I masked some areas off with washi tape to create a sunburst. I ended up covering everything with some glue and seal just in case. I would reccomend not using the matte finnish since it took some of the bling away. Also, the paint strokes are quite visible, it doesn’t bother me, I guess you could use some kind of roller or foam brush to make them less visible.  Just experiment, I used what I had at hand as I always do :)

If it's crafty I have probably tried it. Or plan to try it tomorrow. I love to be creative in all ways, but I tend to gravitate to making cards, coloring and diecutting. I also have a bad yarn shopping.... ehm... KNITTING... habit. I live in Sweden with my husband, two cute minions (also known as kids) and three dogs. I work from home at a small international development company during the days, and craft while listening to audio books or follow my favourite series at nights and on weekends. I love it when I don't have to leave the house, being an introvert and socially awkward and all. That's why my slippers to shoe ratio is close to 1:1 and I'm not ashamed to admit it ;)
