Desk Organizer


Today I am sharing a desk organizer I made from an empty box.
First, I cut the box in two pieces.. one lager than the other.
Next I added black tape on all the edges then covered the pieces with paper.
I glued the 2 pieces together and wrapped a piece if ribbon around them.
A small bow was added as a finishing touch.

This is the before picture:

Prima Doll Easel Card


I made this card for my sister- in -laws' birthday . I used a Julie Nutting doll stamp and paper pieced her clothes then I added black lace to the skirt. The flower is made from black ribbon and I added some metal jewelry findings  for the center.
On the shoes I used  black diamond Stickles. The small purse is a button I found at my local craft store.

Thanks for stopping by.

Up-Cycled Tin


Today I want to share this altered tin.

I used blue acrylic paint mixed with gesso to paint the tin. Next, I stamped  and embossed Bloom Girl Sharon then colored her using acrylic paint. I added the leaves on the background using a stencil and modeling paste then added some ultra fine pearl glitter while still wet. I used a white wash to tone down the background color and used a marker to outline some parts of the leaves.

For the leaves on the side I used the stencil and paint then added modeling paste over it. 

 I finished by adding pearls and sealing the whole thing with gel medium.

I want to enter this in:
