Altered Tag

This is a tag I made for a swap.  I used Graphic 45's Ladies Dairy Paper Line.  I just love this line its very vintage and I love the colors.  I layered the papers under the cut out of the paper.  I added some gorgeous lace that I had in my stash.  I also added some very light blue pearl drop trim.  The flower arrangement are flowers from my stash and the large curly rose is from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I also added a resin flower and a pearl spray.  I inked everything with Vintage Photo from Tim Holtz.  I just love how this came out.  thanks for stopping by and new projects will be posted soon.  I submitted this to a blog challenge over at LEJ Designs.  Have a Scrappy Day!!

Altered Box

This altered box I created was fun and very easy to do.  I painted it with blue acrylic paint and then took gesso and streaked it across the surface and then took a paper towel and wiped off the excess.  It gave it this very cool effect.  I layered some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers in the corner on top of a piece of doily.  I tucked some seam binding into the flowers.  I also took a metal piece and gessoed that as well and added a flat back daisy pearl.  I adhered some trim the the top edge of the box and made a flower cluster on the bottom corner of the box.  I love how this came out.  Thanks for stopping by!  Have a scrappy day!
