It seems I have been neglecting my blog once again. I was not sure how often I would post or if I could even keep up when I started, but I have been trying.
I haven't been sitting around doing nothing, so I thought I'd share some of my recent works with all of you.
First, I have my attempt at altering a former CD holder. I needed (wanted) something different to use as a mail sorter in my office, so....I found this and here's what I did: I used ivory tinted Gesso as a primer, then added distress inks in Spiced Marmalade and Dried Marigold. The labels are from my stash, and the pictures are from the pages of garage sale children's books. I used Tim's flourish stamp and Tea Dye ink for the swirls. The entire box was sprayed with a bit of water (it gives it a bit more of a weathered look) and a matte sealant when done. The flowers are making memories, with clear rhinestones colored to match the rest of the colors. The dragonfly is also from my stash, so I can't tell you where he flew in from.
Let me know what you think. I'll be back tomorrow with my version of an altered cigar box.
Thanks for looking!!!
