Altered Project~

I am so excited about this altered project that I did for the Little Black Dress Kit club this month. I found this cute metal tray at Goodwill for $1.99. My original plans for this tray was to spray paint it black. When I got the new kit in the mail, I quickly changed my mind. The red tones went perfectly with one of the papers. Of course there was a touch of TEAL in the paper so I HAD to use that on the tray!!!! I brushed teal paint onto the flourishes on the tray to begin with.

Then I took the paper and cut it to size. To add more TEAL to my project I got out my sewing maching a had fun sewing on my paper.

Here is a close up of some of the sewing.

Of course I had to add flowers to it! Some of the flowers I made was with left over material that I had. Some were made with trim that came in the kit and one last one was made with linen fabric and I misted it with TEAL Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.

I punched out a butterfly also from this paper and used the bling that came with the Prima letters from the kit.

I LOVE how this project turned out! Of course I used my wonder adhesive Helmar 450. Gotta love me some Helmar! If you have not used Helmar - you must!

Have a great day!
