I have been doing some Altered Art pieces which I love, as anything small is an addiction for me.
This little book is only 4 inches high and 5 inches wide. It sits on a stand and is a great way of displaying a photo. It's a new line from Imaginarium Designs and I have done two so far. This one is on Aimee, who is one of the ladies from Graphic 45. She is another amazing lady who I have had the pleasure to met a few times.
This view is from the back and shows the stand, which I inked and stamped with a tiny word stamp. Don't you love the butterfly, it's only an inch long.
Each month as part of my being on the Graphic 45 design team, I have to do three projects, one of which is a tutorial. This is great as I can do anything I like! They are a great company to do work for and I really am delighted to have another year with them. Charee asked us to do a project using one of the staples door handle and plate. I decided to do mine as a fan and used a photo of Diane taken in Brisbane this year. Diane is the lovely designer and owner of Graphic 45, a very special person. I had John from Imaginarium Designs cut me the fan blades in the same shape as the door plate.
I used some white beautiful lace gathered up to make a circle. I glued flowers to the middle of it to make a rosette. I used one of Prima's glass looking vines which I love. They have an old world charm about them. They remind me of the cut class dishes my Grandmother used to have.
I used some of the butterflies from Imaginarium designs sprayed with gesso, this gives them a white chalky look. Don't you love the fine detail on the butterfly wings!
Well that's all for now. I am feeling like I have finally caught up, although I have an all day scrap in just over three weeks time to arrange. 85 Ladies have booked in to attend, so tomorrow I will start planning it all. One of my first jobs will be to make the project I am teaching, I can share with you that it is an altered art project using a mini black tin in the shape of an old hat box from Prima. Can't wait to get started.
Thanks for stopping by.
Catch you again soon.
