Drawing for the Giveaway on Monday

ALTERED PARTY HAT
It's another Crafty Secrets and Glimmer Mist Combo! lol They just go together so well.. I cant resist.
I did this Funky Party Hat today. My friend Cat had given me a cone to alter, quite some time ago , and it's been calling my name.


The Papers and Stamps are all Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage. The stamps are from the
Bird Notes Set
The lace and tag are both sprayed with Glimmer Mist. The colors I used are. Caribbean Mist 50150 and Golden Terra Cotta 02122. ( the lace is Fancy Pants, and was originally white)



After I was finished I spritzed the entire thing, eggs , nest, and all ,with My Fave... Iridescent Gold 21052.


The vines and flowers are also cut from Crafty Secrets Papers.

I brought it inside after photographing it in natural light, and took a couple of photos, so that you could see the effects of the Glimmer Mist better.
On the next two photos, you can see it alot better.
The two little chipboard wings are from Crafty Secrets also.. they are from the Chipboard pieces that come with the House. ( BTW..the houses are in stock now!!) yay!






I think in this photo you can see the beautiful effect of the Glimmer Mist quite a bit.
After talking to Wendy from Tattered Angels, I'm really excited about learning new Glimmer Mist Techniques at Memory Trends. She said she'd show me stencil, stamping and brayering techniques with Glimmer Mist. I'll certainly share what I learn with you , when I get back. Oh... and she did mention a little something about giving me some Glimmer Mist , for a giveaway!!!
Woo Hoo! ... All this giveaway stuff , is fun! lol


Other than working on projects, It was a quiet day around here. .... but the mail carrier did bring me the Tracing Wheels I ordered for Classes. They are just so handy to use in classes, and are definitely easier than hauling my sewing machine, and then waiting to take turns.
( My friend Catherine..."The master of stitching"... is probably cringing right now!) lol sorry Cat but I'll leave the "serious" stitching to you!! lol

Yay... tracing wheels , for faux stitching for everyone in the class. I'm happy!






And of course I just had to order these darling trims when I ordered the tracing wheels.
After seeing them , I wish I had ordered more.
All I could think is how cute the red check would looking with the Crafty Secret Cooking stuff! lol
Okay Kids.. it's the weekend... so Party like a Rock Star! lol ( wearing a hat with a birds nest on the top...should help get you some attention!) lol

Vicki, you totally rock with these wonderful altered ideas! Now i could do some serious partying with that hat.

I have some glimmer mist. I have to get it out and use it. Which will probably mean that I will have to buy more!

How fun is that!!!! You seriously have to move here so we can grow old together. We will have so much fun be crazy old ladies. But we have a few years before that happens. (The old part..."crazy" is already apparent.)
