Altered Tray - Last DT Project for SCB

Today I say goodbye to an awesome design team.
This is my last project for Shabby is Chic Boutique.
I just want to say that I have had an amazing time and loved working with some very amazing ladies.
I want to especially thank Amy Love for giving me this awesome opportunity to design for her amazing shop.  I hope I have done her proud!
Now lets get to my final project.
I have altered a wooden serving tray.
I have designed this to hold a 4x6 photo.

This will stand or can be hung on the wall.
First I painted it with white gesso, then added pattern paper.
The top right of the layered paper, which I also distressed the edges, I rolled each of the corners.
I then tucked in a paper doily to the top and bottom.  I then added some scrap pieces of lace to the top doily.  I added some paper flowers, and some applique leaves.  I also added a couple of the organza flowers with rhinestone center.  I finished it off with adding the pearl garland, a pink cameo, a flat back pearl and some flat back pearl roses.

The bottom left corner  I added 2 different dangle laces along with some square shaped flat back pearl trim.  I then added some paper flowers, another organza with rhinestone flower, pearl garland and this amazing pearl with rhinestone button.

To the top of the tray I added more of the dangle trim and these beautiful flat back roses.  You can see from the picture there was a little wind and it gave the lace some amazing movement.

I hope you have enjoyed my projects during my term on this amazing team.  I have had a great time working with these amazing products.
Thank you so much Amy!!!

Altered Book Box SCB Design Team Project

Welcome to this weeks project!
I have altered a wooden book box.
I have used some new and old items for Shabby is Chic Boutique on this box.

This first thing I did was gesso the whole box.  I then added pattern paper, which I love the brown and blue together.  I took the blue paper and curled it back to show a paper doily, a small fabric doily, a metal key, a small ivory rose resin piece, and a flat back pearl heart.  I then added a large applique along with some flat back self adhesive pearl trim.

I then decorated on top of the applique with some paper flowers, dangle trim, heart shaped wooden button, a flat back pearl heart, more ivory resin roses, an organza fabric flower, leave appliques, metal spoon, a rose colored metal bow and some pearl garland trim.

I then added some lace trim, pearl trim and resin rose pieces to what would be the pages of a book.  I then added some dangle trim and pearl trim to the spine of the book.

I love the way this book box turned out.  I hope you like what I have created this week.  I have one more project to go before my term is up.  I have so much enjoyed being apart of the Shabby is Chic Boutique Design Team.  I would like to thank Amy Love for asking me to be apart of it.
Thank you so much!!
