Altered Jar!!

I have been trying to get into altering items and have found that it is alot of fun to take something and turn it into something beautiful!!  Here is a few pics of an item that I altered for a swap.  Its a jar and its filled with goodies!!  I had alot of fun making this and it didn't take me very long at all.

I used pattern paper to wrap the jar and glued a pearl strand to the bottom.  On the lid I glued a double layer of lace and pearl trim, added 3 flowers and made a pearl dangle as a center point.

The top of the lid I layered several different flowers and added some pearl trim.  I really like how this came out.  As you can see in the last picture it is filled with goodies.  I hope my partner likes it!!

Thanks for stopping and come visit again!!  Happy Scrapping!!

Hi everyone!  I haven't posted in a while so I thought I would show you a few things I have created in the last few weeks.  I have been very busy with doing swaps and creating projects for challenges.  Its also summer so not spending much time on the weekends creating. 

This project I am posting pictures of was for a challenge on My Scrap Room.  It was alot of fun and I used up a bunch of scraps.  The paper line is from G45 Curtain Call.  The flowers are I am Roses and Wild Orchid Crafts.  I inked them with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo.  The lace and pearl string I got from my local AC Moore Store.  I just love how it turned out.  It was so easy and quick to make.  Start to finish not quite 2 hrs.  I am thinking about making a small mini to go inside.  But I think I need to buy more paper lol...  Well thanks for stopping and looking.  Check back soon for more projects.  Thanks and Happy Scrapping!!! :)
