~* Shabby Chic Mixed Media Altered Wood Sign for a Sweet Friend *~

Aloha Sweet Friends!
Sharing a project I was totally inspired to create for a sweet friend!  She always gives me such sweet support for all my projects and I really appreciate her.  I wanted to create something special!  I used a wood sign that my friend, Marisa, gave to me from Daiso.  It had a brown cord to hang it, but I removed it and replaced it with laces.  I gessoed the entire wood sign.  I then added Martha Stewart Stucco Paint on the edges of the front.  I then painted the front with baby pink acrylic paint.  I added some antique white acrylic paint and molding paste and white acrylic paint to tone it down.
I added a piece of designer paper from docrafts Papermania Love Notes.  Super shabby chic!  I added some molding paste to my Art Is stencil and dabbed the molding paste here and there.  The letters are Maya Road chipboard letters that I painted with white acrylic paint and then some baby pink acrylic paint and then I added molding paste over the letters.  
There are tons of Wild Orchid Craft roses, bits of crochet and delicate lace, trinket pearls that I knotted, a button with twine, pieces of this adhesive crochet doilie, Webster's Pages' heart trim, fabric flowers, and halfback pearls.  I added a Maya Road chipboard teapot that I painted with white acrylic paint, tied some delicate lace, and added a WOC rose and trinket pearls on to.  I also added a Prima wood bow, a iridescent butterfly from a Claire's clip, pink trinket pearls, a WOC fabric butterfly, small white organza flower trim, and a bit of Venise lace.  I added white acrylic paint, gesso, molding paste, and Stickles to all the flowers.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

~* "Forever Friend" Altered Paper Bag as Guest Designer for My Paper Passion on Zibbet *~

Aloha!
Sharing another project that I created as a Guest Designer for My Paper Passion on Zibbet.  I made an altered paper bag with a regular kraft lunch bag.  I used some Target Dollar Bin paper that was laying around the house :).  The adorable image is by artbymiran.  I won her a couple days ago and had to use her.  I colored her up with my Copic markers and added Stickles to her flowers, bow, and shoes.  
I added a bunch of yummy goodies from My Paper Passion on Zibbet including the bling trims at the top, the bling ribbon buckle with halfback pearl, the loopy white trim, the gorgeous purple crochet trim, the pretty white heart venise trim, and the pretty coral pink dangly trim.  I added a pink butterfly, two Target Dollar Bin puffy heart stickers, a ribbon rose, two plastic word tiles from my friend Liann :), a heart crystal spray from Wild Orchid Crafts, two Wild Orchid Crafts roses that I stickled, and a little wood clothespin from my friend Jenny that I added a Wild Orchid Crafts butterfly and a ribbon rose.
Please stop by Nat's amazing and beautiful store!  You won't be disappointed.

Aloha!
Sharing another project that I created as a Guest Designer for My Paper Passion on Zibbet.  I created this mini pizza box from the DCWV The Corrugate Neutrals Stack using Sarah Elliott's tutorial.  I used some old Valentine's Day paper that I picked up from the Target Dollar Spot and some die cuts from my friend Kristina.  I added tons of Diamond Stickles everywhere.  The image is C. C. Designs' Honey Lesa.  I colored her up with my Copic markers and added Stickles to her love notes.  I added a cute flower bead to her hair.  
I added a cute little doilie from Kristina and then I placed a ribbon buckle and halfback pearl on top from My Paper Passion on Zibbet.  There is a little flower pearl, baby Prima rose, two shimmery puffy heart stickers from Target, a pretty button that I added some Target Dollar Bin twine, a Prima wood piece that says I heart you, some Prima and Wild Orchid Crafts roses and a cute flower bead. 
I used a bunch of goodies in addition to the ribbon buckle and halfback pearl from My Paper Passion on Zibbet.  The loopy trim on the bottom as well as the row of dark magenta bling.  I lined the outside of the box with red crochet trim and pink crochet trim that had red satin trim weaved into it.  Go check out Nat's beautiful store :).

Aloha!
Sharing another project that I created as a Guest Designer for My Paper Passion on Zibbet.  I altered a kraft envelope using some Colorbok cardstock and some K and Company Watercolor Bouquet Specialty Paper.  I inked the edges with some Stampin Up! ink in Regal Rose.  I added a pink polka dot diecut, a beautiful white crochet doilie from My Paper Passion and added The Greeting Farm's Hatter Bean image that I colored up with my Copic markers and added some Studio G glitter glue on her hat ribbons.  I scattered some magenta rhinestones around her.  I added a yellow puffy heart, a pink rhinestone heart, two baby Prima roses, and a heart stickpin that I made. On the lefthandside, I added the pink trim with the red satin trim woven into it, pink halfback pearls, and white scalloped trim.  These are from My Paper Passion on Zibbet.  I added an American Crafts embellishment that said hello.  I added two ribbon buckles and two halfback pearls from My Paper Passion.  I also added glitter glue around the embellishment.  On the bottom left corner, I added a glittery butterfly, a pink heart bead, a shiny pink flower, a pink fabric flower, a Wild Orchid Crafts ivory small trellis rose, a handmade flower from Kristina, and trinket pearls that I knotted.  I also added a clothespin clip from Michaels from my friend, Kristina.
