Continuing on the “Best of 2010” stuff, here’s my favorite altered items this year.
This was a set of tea+card created with Pink Paislee’s Amber Road-collection. The tea-can originallly was a can of honey.
I love this because I actually did one of my very rare stamping here (I even embossed stuff!), misted and painted the card..plus I love this color-scheme.
Amber Road is such a gorgeous, dark yet sophisticated collection…
The lid, painted white then blackwashed and sanded.
This was an altered box holding cards, created for Pink Paislee’s Inspirational Tour back in April. You can find the tutorial here
This dressed up chocolate-box. I love it because I thought I was being oh, so clever (I still think I am! ) with the message on the tag
It simply means the contents of this box (which’s chocolate mind you) was for those aged 36+ only – which’s perfect for my friend who’s the oldest in her family.
These wrapped chocolate-bars. I think I love them because I love the paper-collection used here, from Fancy Pants Designs. Plus – bonus for using the felt-shapes!
Ok so tbh - this paper-collection (Dancing Girl) isn’t really my first choice for scrapping. But – I found out it’s great for little girls (um, ofcourse ) – and making small, cute cards and bags for their little gifts.. Perfect!
Ok, this really is an altered item. I love how using a multi-medium (Like Claudine Hellmuths) sealer seem to transform the papers to canvasses when used on both sides twice. Like, giving you the feeling of working with canvas-fabric. You can find the tutorial on the Fancy Pants blogpost here.
I even did a fair bit of hand-stitching (rare!) & used the good old Basic Grey magnetthingies.
The way I created it, it could be used over and over again – by taking out the notebook so you could reuse the cover..
Mini-canvas w/felt, pebbles, pleated ribbons, bling, rub-ons and mist!! what’s NOT to love here!? You can find the tutorial on this one here
A box-card! With room for money inside..
Another notebook – and another tutorial found here
This one’s pretty simple – but I need to add this one because I LOVE this woodgrainpaper and these Kraft-stickers! Everything from Hambly Screenprints. The white paint-splatter is white glimmer chalk
Phew! I managed to keep the # to 10 this time, yay me!
