About Me

My photo

Well, I can't really tell you allllll about me! LOL. But I can tell you that I'm a wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin, and Christian. And I love scrapbooking, card making, painting, and altered art.  I love to coordinate parties with themes and come up with new ways to incorporate paper art into them.   I enjoy working with my hands and making something out of nothing.  It's such a wonderful thing to know that there are so many beautiful women out there who share the same passion for this hobby....ART! that I do. I draw inspiration from everything around me and from people like you! So, let's get scrappin'!

Altered Doll Furniture Pt.2

Hi all:
Hope all is well in your craft-land!

In a recent post I said that I would be back to show the end result for altering the little piece of doll furniture that I found at my local thrift shop.

I covered the piece in tan gesso, and after giving it a coat of glue to create the crackle effect, I added black paint.  I decided to keep the embellishments minimal and only added several mulberry flowers and a couple of leaves cut from a doily; along with a scrap piece of doily to mimic a towel or whatever your imagination chooses.

I think that it turned out rather cute!

I made another little "I can alter this" discovery this past weekend.  I'll be working on that this weekend.  I'm thinking that I'll create it to match a piece that I did for my daughter's new house....

Until next time
