Altered Photo Frames

Hello friends!

Lately, I have been working on altering photo frames which I got from Ikea. I thought of making a combined post of it. They're pretty easy to alter and I think it's a perfect gift for your loved ones. 

All I did was paint them with Distress Paints. First, one is painted with Shabby Shutters, then next is in Antique Linen and the last one is in Spiced Marmalade. 

Then added all the required embellishments. Few of them are by Prima Marketing, Recollections. Tim Holtz, Finnabair etc.

Pulled up a mint colored cardstock, distressed it and went on with the mists. Next, I used White Sand Textured Paste. Btw this was my first time using this one and I didn't read that it dries out transparent. My bad!! However, I loved how it looked in the end so it was a win win. Then I arranged the embellishments and layered up some more cardstocks.

Here is a closer look to it! Hope you like it!

Burlesque Fantasy Mini Configuration Box

Hi there!

Today, I am posting another Mini Configuration Box. I'm currently obsessed with them. I recently ordered Prima Marketing Wood Icons Box embellishment. To be honest, I just adore them. So, I thought to alter another one of them. Who could throw the cutest wood packing away?? I CAN'T!!!

I painted the box with Distress Paint in Walnut Stain. Then covered it with vintage brown pattern paper. It's from My Mind's Eye The Best Of Lost & Found™ Paper Pad. It comes in 12x12" with 180 sheets. I love all the designs and they're just perfect for vintage themed projects.

Next, I pulled up some blooms from Prima's new flower collection. I have used Allegra Vintage Emporium. Also, the cute little clock is from Prima's 'Vintage Emporium' Wood Icons Box. Then adjusted Tim Holtz's metal frame (FAV!). Next, I painted some wood veneers by Jillibean Soup. The set is 'today printed' and comes in 11 pieces. End step was to fill up the mini jar with silver glitter and stick some cream and silver rhinestones.

I hope you liked the box! Until next time.

Sunny-Day-Out Mini Configuration Box

Here again with another altered Prima Marketing's wood icons box. Painted the entire box using Distress Paint in Walnut Stain. Then for the base, I've used My Mind Eye's 6x6" Paper Pad (forgot which one was it - Sorry!). Embellishments are by Tim Holtz, Heidi Swapp, Prima Marketing & Recollection. Butterfly die is by Sizzix which again has been distressed using Faded Jeans & Aged Mahogany.

Let's have a closer look! 

This is pretty much it! I hope you liked it!

Unforgettable Moments Canvas

Hi there! Today’s Crafters' Palette post is a multi-layered canvas. Trust me it’s super easy to make. It hardly took 45 minutes!

First, I grabbed three cardstocks and tore them up. Then I distressed them using a bunch of Distress Ink colors and used Distress Spray Stains in ‘Festive Berries’ & ‘Seedless Preserves’.

Next, I grabbed some chipboard embellishments and used Distress Paints all over them. I used ‘Antique Linen’ & ‘Black Soot’. I then cut out some butterflies using the gorgeous Winged Beauties Thinlit Dies, and distressed them in two-tone. The last step was to add some Prima flowers!

Hope you liked it! Till next time!

Withered Day Canvas

Hey everyone!

Today's post is one of the March creations, I actually forgot to blog about it. Sigh! It's one of my favorites! I wonder what happened to the picture quality as in real it looked gorgeous. Anyway let's get into the details.

Things Used:
- Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads (Walnut Stain, Vintage Photo, Aged Mahogany & Embossing Ink)
- Tim Holtz Distress Paints (Walnut Stain, Evergreen Bough & Black Soot)
- Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stains (Gathered Twigs, Antique Linen & Peacock Feathers)
- Tim Holtz LatticeWork Stencil
- Ranger Embossing Powder in Black
- Perfect Pearls (Pewter & Heirloom Gold)
- Scripted Stamp by Stampers Anonymous
- Cardstock (Forgot from which paper pad it was)
- Dusty Attic's Chipboards
- Prima Marketing Flowers
- Tim Holtz Metal Embellishments
- Embossed Plastic Leaves (Picked up from some local store in Riyadh)

At first, I distressed the entire background with inks and stains. I used a scripted stamp with some perfect pearls to give a bit of a shine. Once the background was done I put up the picture and started off with the embellishments which are already listed above. However, that leaf flourish in grey has been cut through Silhouette Cameo.

Close-up!!! As you can see there's a lot going on the background.

And there is my favourite pick - Metal Frame from Tim Holtz collection. Look at that detailing! I'm literally drooling over it!!!

Anyhow, it's time to end the post. I hope you all liked it! Until next time!
