Asian themed swap

I made this for my swap partner who wanted Asian themed items in colors of red, black, gold, white/cream. It came unpainted in just the brown wood color. I painted it black then used paper from Bo Bunny Serenity Collection. I lined the inside too. I used a Martha Stewart border lace punch and a couple brads to make it pretty.

More Asian themed swap items to come!

Love - my first art journal page

I just completed my very first page in my art journal - Love!! Art journaling and mixed media is something I have been wanting to do and I'm finally doing it.

This is for Tracy's July creative dare, as well as Limor's MM July Challenge. I combined them into one piece.

Olde Curiosity Shoppe Altered box

This is a cigar box that I altered with Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe collection for a swap I was in. It goes with the 2 previous projects here on my blog. My swap partner likes this collection from G45 and so that's what I went with!  It was my first time altering one of these boxes, it was very fun and I love how it came out! She loved all three projects as well. :)

Thanks for stopping by, don't forget to leave a comment letting me know what you think! :)

When Pigs Fly Dome

This is another project I made using Olde Curiosity Shoppe collection by Graphic 45. I fussy cut a flying pig out of one of the sheets of paper and attached it to a piece of wire. The When pigs fly sign was cut out from a sheet of the paper too and put on wire. The other pieces were border strips included with the collection. I covered half of a Styrofoam ball with material to stick the wire in for the pig and sign to stand up. The base was originally brown and I painted it black.

Olde Curiosity Shoppe Altered book

I used the Olde Curiosity Shoppe Collection by Graphic 45 to create my very first altered book. I took an old book and cut a house shape out of it. Mod Podged the pages together, painted black and created a niche inside and placed a butterfly that I fussy cut from a sheet of Graphic 45 paper. I added some glossy accents to the spots on the butterfly. I wanted the book to look a bit aged and worn so I added some ink in spots. On the cover, I also cut out a hole for eye so it has some depth to it as well.

Thanks for stopping by my blog...
