Recycling & Up-cycling with a vengeance !!!


Good morning my dears,  I've been working on a project for 
the past fewdays and I'll tell you it nearly went out the window
a few times, not because it was particularly difficult but
I only had 2 12 x 12 sheets of my precious Maja Designs
Sofiero Princess Margareta's Garden and  2 sheets of 
Sofiero The Elegant Wine House papers.  
I so wanted it all to fit every element I was transforming.  
Sadly It wasn't enough and I had to use some Vintage Summer Basics for the jars!!!!


First let me tell you that I was motivated by the lovely Shilpa (Craftangelonline) 
who posted her up-cycled double fronted jewellery box over on her Youtube channel HERE
My altered jewellery box is very plain compared to Shilpa's but I love it.  

  I'm one of Shilpa's many subscribers as I love her shabby chic and vintage style. 
 Anyway's I will try my best to explain how I've achieved this transformation 
using only paper, acrylic pain and Frantage. 

It all started when I found a very similar wooden jewellery cabinet
 in my local charity shop for £1.00 I forgot to take a picture of it before I started
the treatment but everything is exactly the same dimensions the only difference is the 
glass front.  The one I bought had a different flower


Hopefully these pictures will tell you the story of how this piece has been transformed.



Once I had painted every single inch (3 coats with heavy duty Gesso, I then cut the paper to size 
and started covering it inside and outside, the drawers have been lined too the handles removed and then re attached.  I took out the little rotating wheel in the roof painted and heat embossed it and
then re attached it to hold my pearl strings. 






 The little jars hold buttons, cabochon's, resin flowers, miniature clothes pegs etc 
but they started out holding my salad dressings!!!!!
 I know - "I'm Crazy" lol.   Here is how they started before I washed and sterilised them, 
painted the lids and then heat embossed them
using vintage white frantage. I used some vintage summer
basics and made belly bands for the jars.






Thank you so much for taking the time to come and visit, I hope you
enjoyed my recycled/up-cycled project. 

Hugs

Shabby Chic Mini Album!!!


Good morning my dears,   I'm here today to share my 
Design Team project  with you for




Today I've decorated a pre bought 6 page album, the pages are wood and I painted them all with Gesso before using one of the 
pages as a template to cut out the paper by hand. 
 I chose Lemoncraft Heart Painted 12 x 12 paper to decorate the pages,  I fussy cutting some of the butterfly's and also used one of the cute clock buttons from
the same collection.

 All the flowers on the front cover and inside have been handmade using the papers and various Spellbinder and Doohickey dies. The bird cage and bird are a Tim Holtz Alterations die but once again I've used the papers
for the very top layer after cutting it out in chipboard. 

 Here are more pics of this beautiful collection.
