ALTER IT WEDNESDAY........Dream About A Mermaids life


So keeping in the vien of this months theme "Mermaids" I wanted to share a little design I did using Gecko Galz mermaid image and dream words. I also took a 4x4 block and painted it with Dragonfly Glimmer Mist then streaked it with white acrylic paint to give a distressed look. Then took my paper piecer and poked two holes in top of  block and place wire with rustic stars then distress it with the white paint. using liquid glue place mermaid on block and hite glue with pearl beads.
brush on stickles in Turquoise to tail and place word banner over her head.
adhere on shell and glue little pearl to hand.
Have fun creating your own mermaid shrine!

FRAME FRIDAY.....She's A little Bit Country


So keeping with the theme of the month my frame this month is a cowgirls frame  and I wanted to share it with you.



So I used a piece of Burlap paper to cover the front of the frame then inked the edges with Ranger Distress ink in Vintage photo to create an aged look. Next I took denim fabric and created my own ribbon which I layered down the right side of the frame. Next I took 2 denim colored flowers by paper studio and adhered to the top of the ribbon.
Next I printed the cowgirl and sentiment onto card stock using Gecko Galz Ride Em Cowgirl craft kit and cut them out then inked the edges with my brown ink. Now I layered the cowgirl to the left side of the frame and the sentiment on the right and finished it off with Viva pearl pen in silver.
This makes a great cowgirl gift for your bestie.


This design was entered in the 
Vintage Journey

FRAME FRIDAY.........Pretty as a Princess

For this months frame I did a frame for a very special little girl. Everyone dreams of being a princess and Disney captures the art of being a princess in every way. I started with my wooden frame from Michaels (these are fantastic if you need a last minute gift) and covered with Disney paper by DCWV and inked the edges with Distress ink in Rippened berries. I took an image from DCWV 8x8 Disney princess pack and adhere to the lower left corner. Take your cream Viva pearl pen and add to the frame opening and around the princess image. Next at the top add white lace and pink and yellow braided trim as well as a pink paper rose by recollections. to finish add pearl pen just above the trim.
this is a great baby shower gift.
