Making Beautiful Music!…. by Cindy Porter

Hi everyone it’s Cindy here with you today, thanks for joining me…
Today I’d like to share with you a project I created for a bit of fun with Scrap FX and a load of Lindy’s Stamp Gang products….

My Altered Guitar; Timeless Beauty.

This guitar was found in the junk pile of a thrift shop, they didn’t even think it was worth selling, how wrong were they…. thanks to a friend of mine, I ended up with it, and I had so much fun altering it…

I started with a gesso base coat to give myself a workable surface.

I used pan pastels to colour and shade her face.


I used the Industrial Chic Starburst spray set to colour the guitar and flowers, this is still my favourite Starburst set, I totally love them….


I used lots of the Scrap FX  Flourish D flourishes around the flower clusters.  I painted up these flourishes using the LSG magicals powders and a wet paint brush, the Industrial Chic set of course. Using the magicals instead of the sprays allows you to get a more concentrated colour and shine.


I created lots of texture in her hair. I coloured it with more Lindy Stamp Gang Sprays, and I gave it sheen and shine with Lindy’s two tone embossing powders in bronze, copper and gold toning’s.

I used the Scrap FX title Timeless Beauty again painted up with magicals and the Flourish F flourish also painted up with magicals in her hair.


to finish off the neck of the guitar I used the Scrap FX Flourish V, once again painted up with the Lindy’s Stamp Gang magicals.

I hope you enjoyed this project as much as I enjoyed creating it.
