New Graphic 45 Project

I love this vintage image of the woman holding the bouquet of flower so much so I had to do a small card with her as the main focal point. I used Graphic 45 papers for the clock and pink 2d flower. The black flower was an iamroses gardenia that I had painted black. The gears are Tim Holtz tiny gears and the silver trim I got at clearance at my local craft store.
Nothing big this week as I am working on my Spice Rack. I found an old spice rack at the goodwill and am redoing it with Graphic 45 Birdsong. I Can't wait to finish it and post pics here. 
Hope everyone has a great crafty week!

Graphic 45 Altered Box

 Altered Box

With Graphic 45 Curtain Call

This is my first Altered Box. I had to use the few sheets of Graphic 45 Curtain Call sheets I had picked up at clearance at my local craft store ( I missed the paper pack) I had gotten a small round paper mache box at the craft store and painted it with black acrylic paint. When that dried I painted it with Black Stiletto Glimmer Glam, now I don't know how many of you used glimmer glam from Tattered Angels before but I love that stuff, it adds a real black color but with tiny specks of glitter and a great shine its one of my must have products.

After the paint dried I cutout the lovely woman's face using the Spellbinders Scalloped Circles Die and one larger circle for the background of the woman. I also used the Peacock paper for the final bottom piece that circled the entire top lid.

Next I made my own embellishment using a handmade paper flower and some tulle, I also used a handmade stick pin which are fun to make using corsage pins!. I cut out some of the postage sized images and glued them on the sides of the box. I added Flim Strip by Tim Holtz and a metal key from K & Company to finish it off.

I really enjoyed doing this box and have since bought a few more boxed to decorate so stay tuned for more Altered boxes coming soon lol.
