This is an altered DVD. The blue color in this photo is misleading. The bottom half of the circle and the part under the fan is silver in color; however the photo makes it appear to be blue. I put the DVD in my Big Shot machine in an embossing folder. I don't know if I would recommend this, as it was somewhat difficult to emboss! Surprisingly, after embossing the DVD, it separated into two pieces. Now if I can just figure out a way to separate the DVD layers BEFORE embossing, I might have an easier time putting it through the embossing machine. I used red Adirondack ink to color the bottom. The fan is trimmed with washi paper.
This is the first CD / DVD that I altered. I started by brushing a thin layer of gesso over top of the surface of the DVD. When it dried, I pulled out all of my red watercolors and used every one of them on this piece! I then glazed over it with crystal stickles, and finished it off with a layer of Mod Podge. Unfortunately, the stickles glaze does not show up in this scan.
