My contract was up with our cell phone carrier, so The Hubs decided he wanted me to have a new phone.
Guess which one I decided on?
The Samsung Galaxy SIII.
We got lucky and got this for a good price. I just couldn't pass it up!
Ain't she pretty??
(Samsung Galaxy S3 in Pearl Blue)
She (should I name her? LOL) is so pretty, I hate to put a case on her and cover up all this shiny-ness. But we all know, we need our phones in cases just in case we drop them. Right? So I decided to pretty-up my ugly, grey case. With the help of some Mod Podge. (this stuff is awesome!)
I assembled all of my supplies....
and got to work.....
....tracing, trimming, and trimming some more until I got the paper just the right size.
Then I used a foam brush to spread some Mod Podge Hard Coat on the case. Then a little on the paper. Laid the paper on the case, and spread all the bubbles and creases out the best I could.
I set it to the side to dry, rinsed the brush and started another load of laundry. (always laundry to do, huh?) I came back and spread some more MP over the paper. Then set it aside to dry. Again.
Don't forget to rinse your brush!!
I probably put 4 coats of MP on the paper.
If you have worked with MP, then you know you have to let the object you are MP-ing dry in between coats. At least 15-20 minutes. I am an inpatient person, so this is hard for me. But, well worth it in the end!!
See, she is still pretty, just in a different, not shiny way. :)
Note: if you look closely at the top of the paper, you can see the MP on the case. I just scraped it off with my fingernail. Not all at once. Over the space of a couple of days.
