Earring Hanger - upcycled art :)

I have really been enjoying making these beautiful Earring hangers.
I always like to upcycle, revamp and alter where I can.
I got a whole box load of old frames from a garage sale and I have making quite a few of these lately :)

To make this I took an old frame and painted it with some black arcrylic...around the edge I used embossing ink and stamped all around with a script stamp and then I brushed some beautiful perfect pearls over it.  I love how it gives off these beautiful blue and teal shimmer at different angles.

I used the beautiful Graphic45 couture papers to cover the background and then adhered with my glue gun some edging that I cut from a crochet doily.  Glued some pearl trim along the top of the crochet trim to not only embellish but to also stop the earrings from weighing it down.

I then just gor stuck in and embellished the corners with a cluster of goodies.
Beautiful rossette trim flowers, vintage buttons, bling, flat back pearls a beaded spray that I made and some black sequin trim really bring this frame to life :)

Thank you so much for stopping by.  Check out this video for a closer look at this altered frame :)

Ribbon Roses - How I make them Shabby

Hey there
As you know I love to make flowers and sometimes when the mood takes me I make a pile of these easy peasy ribbon roses.  They are so useful to have on hand when you need a little embellishment to fill a gap or just let them shine on their own...the little satin ones really soften the look of any creation.

With these ribbon roses I have added other fabrics to give them an extra shabby look.
So easy and fun to make.

So much fun to experiment with different fabrics to make these rolled ribbon roses shabby....lace, pearl trim, tulle,cheese clothe the ideas are endless and perfect for co-ordinating colour and textures to you creations :)

here's a tutorial on how I make these beautiful little tresures :)

Hope you give these a try :)

Mini Album - Kaisercraft

Hey guys
Kids are back at school and things can start to get back to normal.  waved my boy off yesterday morning as he began his year at college.  Still can't believe I have 2 teens...where does the time go.
Oh well I dried my tears and decided to get stuck in to crafting...YAY!!!
This week I wanna show you a little Mini Album...I was inspired by a Mini that Kimi had sent me.  I really loved the paper she used up against black cardstock and thought that this gorgeous Bluebell Paper by Kaiser craft would be perfect.

This collection has such a great colour pallette I really love creating this mini.  I used alot of the elements that come in the collection the collectible, stickers from the 12 x 12 sticker sheet,  cut out some of the journaling spaces.  Things come together so easily when you have the whole collection.

Heres a vid of you want to check this album out more closely.

Hope you guys have had a great week so far and managed to get some crafty time in.  I look forward to sharing another project with you next week.
