Altered CD

I created this altered CD for my daughters birthday this month and as she is a crafter too I needed to do something different to hold her card!
I used the Kaisercraft Marigold paper and collectables for this project.
I started by gluing  down the paper then stressed the edges with some duck egg blue paint.
then added the collectable flowers and sentiments after using distress inks on the edges.
Leaving them free on the inside edge to hold the wee card!
Added some blue bling then dabbed over some high points to tone down the brightness with the leftover paint.
Finally I added the bead trim, hanger made from ribbon, and covered the back with more of the paper.

My 1st Altered Bottle

I just loved creating the Altered Bottle!
I started by painting the entire bottle with a duck egg blue I mixed myself
then added lace with mod podge.
The photo I found on pinterest and distressed it to age the look.
I started with a layer of dollies around the middle then added lace and trims of black, white and blue to bring out the colour in the photo,
Such creative fun in adding pearls, bling, flowers, metal embellishments, and stickles to bring out some dimensional sparkles!

Altered Paper Bag

Hi everyone!
I created this for a weekly challenge on Artistic Creationz on Facebook.
We had to create something made from scraps,leftovers and bits n bobs.
My Daughter is having a birthday soon so I thought why not make something I can use to hold a gift.
I used papers from Kaisercraft "Curiosity" Laces and Trims from my scraps!
The back of the bag I glued to create a pocket to hold the tag.

 then decorated with vintage and tea dyed lace, pearls
hand made crochet flowers some tea dyed cheese cloth
tied into a bow and a final touch is a vintage button.
