~* Shabby Chic Altered Paper Mache Letter using Prima Divine *~

Aloha!
I'm sharing an altered paper mache letter that I made using the Prima Divine collection.  I adhered the papers to both sides of the letter after gesso-ing the letter up.  I distressed the edges and added some beautiful Hobby Lobby trim all around the letter.  I also fussy-cut the rose image from another paper and added Stickles all over it.  I used my Art Is stencil and modeling paste at the bottom and added modeling paste and Stickles around the letter to give it texture and shimmer.
There are fabric and paper flowers from Prima, craftycity.com, and my local craft store.  All of the paper flowers have gesso and Stickles on them.  I also added my fave Webster's Pages' heart trim, Prima Alencon lace, and lace from craftycity.com.  There is a Kaisercraft crochet doilie, a heart bead, pearl stamens, pearl flourishes, and peach silk ribbon that I tied in a bow.
There is an adorable resin birdie on the bottom that I made a nest for.  I used some tulle trim, half a crochet doilie, three halfback pearls, a rose cabochon, and pink flower trim.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great week!
*hugs* and Much aloha,
Steph :)

~* Quick Shabby Chic Card *~

Aloha!
Here is a quick shabby chic card that I made using printables called Vintage Finds from iralamijashop on Etsy.  Thanks again, Bety!  I cut a Recollections corrugated cardstock card to fit the size of the papers.  I distressed the edges of the papers and also used the sentiment piece from the collection.  I also distressed the edges with Antique White acrylic paint.  I added a strip of the corrugated cardboard at the bottom of the card, then I added some Webster's Pages' trims - the one under the sentiment and the heart trim.  I also added some white organza rosette trim.  I used a pretty Prima fabric flower, Wild Orchid Crafts roses, delicate lace that I tied in a bows, seam binding that I double-bowed, the 5 cent image from the collection that I punched out and distressed,  some baby Prima roses, and a heart halfback pearl.  I also added some of the paper to the inside so I could write my message.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

~* Shabby Chic Altered Glassine Bag Card using Prima Divine *~

Aloha!
I bought pizza again on Friday and they gave me a glassine bag filled with napkins.  I was happy because you know what that meant :)...I can alter another glassine bag :).
I used the beautiful papers from the Prima Divine collection.  I distressed the edges with my fingernail.  I added modeling paste with my Art Is stencil and also added modeling paste here and there.  I also curled up the right corner and tuck in a bit of lace.
I added Stickles to the rose image and the Prima butterfly.  There are some baby open roses from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I added a crochet lace that I knotted, some heart trim from Webster's Pages, and some pretty white cotton lace from Nat's store at the "binding" of my card.
I added some more papers to the inside.  I layered some images and stickled up the edges and also the banners.  I added some lace from Nat's store and some of my fave May Arts crochet trim.  The edge has some milky iridescent white halfback pearls as well as two lovely laces from Nat's store.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!
