I sprayed my background with homemade glimmer mist in pink and purple. Then I used Neon Markers from Letraset. I used them on my stamps, templates and bubble wrap! They worked great and the bright colors are the "in" thing right now!
Here is my first completed altered mouse trap! (yep, I have a few more in the works, just gotta get them completed!) I seen the idea a long while back on Pinterest and knew I wanted to make some.
I love how it turned out!! I bought a pack of new traps from the Dollar Store and took off the parts not needed and started altering. So fun!
I first stamped on it using StazOn ink and Tim Holtz stamps, then added color by using my homemade glimmer mists. To finish it off, I added a piece of pattern paper that I had stamped on. I ripped it to look cool! Now this is a very awesome memo holder! Just add a magnet or whatever to the back and put it where it needs to be to hold a little note.

This is the last of the Asian themed projects for the swap I was in. I used a frame from China and took it apart and cut a dragon from the Pagoda Cartridge and put it inside along with my own gold background paper. For the outside I painted it using the candling technique by The Gentlman Crafter. It is a Wax Resist Technique. Pretty much you paint it one color, rub with candle wax and paint another color on top and rub/buff it.
And here are all my Asian swap items in one photo together!
I made an altered birdcage for part of my Asian themed swap. I started by painting it black. I took apart 3 photo frames I had in my stash (from a garage sale, that I originally bought for the shadow box frames) that had Asian words in them and used these for both sides and the front of the birdcage. Inside I included beautiful flowers in a container wrapped with red lace and added 3 decorative stick pins to them that I had made.
Here is an Asian themed altered notebook I made for the swap. I used the Pagoda Cricut Cartridge, (that my friend Kelley generously loaned me) for the cuts. I added some lace trim up the edge. Included a ying yang charm on the side.
On the inside I included an old photo of some Asian women that I found at a flea market. And another charm on the side.
Here I made Asian decorative stick pins for the swap. I actually found the beads with the Asian words at a garage sale, and the others I had in my stash. I added the umbrella because I liked the red and the design on it made me think of the asian theme.
