Thrifted Vase Redesign

For this project, I take an inexpensive thrifted vase and redesign it for a new home decor item!

I use a variety of Finnabair/Prima Marketing Inc. Wax Cire Cera colors to create a “metal-like” effect. I also use Finnabair Art Basics Soft Gloss Gel and Heavy Gesso,and Art Ingredients Art Stones. In addition, I use Liquitex Gesso, Blended Fibers, and Light Modeling Paste to create texture and adhere the floral and cord details.

I love the transformation from something simple to something with design and flare!

Stamperia Fairy Photo box

Newly completed design project to share with you!

I truly love the way this photo box (also a keepsake box) project turned out. I used the whimsical double-sided paper from Stamperia.com to create this project. The 3D sections on the outer sides of the box, along with a sprinkling of “fairy dust” are just a few of the elements that help make this project come together.

Here is a quick slideshow of photos. If you want to see and hear about off the the project features, please head over to my YouTube channel. Thanks for stopping by.


PhotoPlay “Moments In Time” KeepSake Mini Album

Just finished a new mini album design! I am calling it a “keepsake” mini album because of the keepsake details I incorporated into the album design.

The Moments In Time paper collection is a lovely set of 12 X 12 double-sided printed papers, a 12 X 12 sticker sheet, and two 12 X 12 sheets of cut a parts.

The first keepsake element is on the front cover of the album. An acetate window and top slot gives access to adding your favorite cards, memorabilia, ticket stubs, receipts, or any other items commemorating your memories. A convenient flap keeps all the items safe and secure.

The second keepsake is a small window box in the back inside of the album. Here too, you can keep small items you wish to retain in the album. The accordion pleated box sides allows for some expansion.

The page spine is credited to FollowThePaperTrail by Laura Denison Designs (https://youtu.be/C85xgZVAiSU). Quite a unique and different way to place your album pages. I particularly like the flexibility in removing or interchanging the pages easily.

Reinventing A Project: Project #2

A few months back I shared a post about creating a design project from a previous project. Below is the original project for this inspiration.

In the first reinvented project, I transformed the box into a three dimensional photo display.

The second reinvented project focuses on using the floral components of the original design project. Using an 11.5″ X 13.5″ denim canvas as my base, I created a vignette for a photo display.

You can hear and see all of the details of this project on my YouTube video below.

I have just a few more pieces from the the original project leftover and plan to make one last project for this Reinventing A Project series, so stay tuned!

I hope you are inspired to create your own reinvented project by using an old project or just found items around your craft space or home.
