Here are a few of the altered projects I have
been working on:
Vintage Valentine's Day Plaque - I got this plaque at Hobby Lobby quite a few years ago and never used it. I was never too fond of the bright white background, so I decided I would change it. I used Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Stains and Glitz Spritz to distress the background. Then I used Rub 'n Buff to alter the outer edges. I wanted a bit more texture, so I used some vintage background stamps by Glitz Design with StazOn ink to add some depth to the outer frame. The 3 vintage valentine pictures were cut out from a piece of designer paper by Fancy Pants Design.
7gypsies Shadow Box Tray - I altered this tray to display in my craft studio. I used the new 7gypsies paper line, Lille. The papers weren't colorful enough for me, so I used a variety of papers from Graphic 45 and K & Company as well. I used a variety of embellishments from Tim Holtz, iamroses.com, Making Memories, CTMH, Prima, and Recollections. The trim is from atreasurenest.com. The blank box is being saved for some apothecary jars that 7gypsies just released at CHA this past week. Here's a sneak peek.... http://sevengypsies.blogspot.com/2011/01/gypsy-apothecary-sneak-peak.html Love them!
