Hello there! I do hope you can join our new challenge .... it could be just the excuse you were looking for to upcycle something that you use that looks just a bit ordinary ....it certainly got me busy with our trusty coin tin!!!!
It's all roses and shabby chic today on my blog with my pimped up frame!
Join me for a cup of roses here and read all the details on how
I transformed this ordinary frame.
and Happy Easter ! Today sees the start of a new Challenge of which the theme "Pimp it up", reuse or alter, was chosen by the lovely Evelyn. I chose to reuse some old book paper for this art journal spread.
I have filmed to process so please HOP (excuse the pun) over to my YouTube Channel HERE or blog HERE where you'll find a link to the video. Or, you can click on the pic below !
Happy Easter everyone and there are double celebrations in my house as today is also my birthday!
For the fun theme this month I "pimped up" a little Links box. I wanted to keep a few of my treasured Links charms in it and also reuse a lovely metal star. This came from a Christmas gift tag my son gave to me. It has been sitting on my side waiting for a home and this was an ideal opportunity to use it.
This is my finished box.
It's very hard to show it in one photo so if you would like to see some before and after photos, as well as a step by step of my processes, do hop pop on over to my blog here. I will raise a virtual glass of bubbly to you all today as I celebrate being a year older.
Have a lovely day.
