It's the first Monday of the month.... so it's time for Crafty Secrets monthly linky party.
We'd LOVE to have you play along. You can pop over to the Heartwarming Vintage blog for the info, and to get the links to all the others playing along.
I'm sharing a Altered bust I've been working on. I used papers and elements from the new "Designing with Vintage Typography CD" from Crafty Secrets.
I printed of the papers and images on text weight paper using my ink jet printer. Some random pieces of my printed text paper, I added some color too, using Glimmer mist. I then sprayed all the papers with a light quick coat of Krylon Matte Finish to prevent any smearing or running as I started decoupaging.
I just started cutting and tearing paper pieces and adding layers, using the decoupage. I even made these jewelry pieces with elements from the CD. The top one is added to a round silver charm, the big one that says ART... was added to the back of one of the Tim Holtz "Fragments", and the bottom round one is decoupaged to a round wood piece. Chains from Creative Impressions.
I LOVE these different elements on the CD.
To create your elements you can add what you want digitally or by hand. I have used this magnifying class alone, or with the word "ART" in it, but this time I added the butterfly.
Same with the bottle. I added a little label from the CD to the bottle.
I all ways love butterflies:)
I wanted to show you these wood knobs I did also. Crafty Secrets will soon soon be selling these. I'll talk about them again and link to them once they are in the shop. Sandy also had a set on the Heartwarming Vintage blog today, that she did.
Before I close , I have to show you my sweet new little friend Tyler. She and I became best buds when she did the make and take. Here she is doing a little stamping. What a doll!
Enjoy the day!
Thanks for stopping by!!
