Today I decided to alter the little paper box I bought earlier. I didn’t have any idea what I wanted to do with it. I sort of just went with the flow.
I added some paper from Graphic 45 and some pictures I found on Graphics Fairy. The background behind the lady and the crown is a playing card, with some texture paste I added through a stencil. I also sprayed the inside of the box with Dylusions Vibrant Turquoise.
The embellishments are some stuff I had laying around, brads, paper clip, sequin and button. The stars I cut out from a paper-scrap I had, can’t remember where it came from.
Hope you’re having a great summer!
We’re on vacation. The first days of your vacation is like Friday afternoon… only longer. Love it!
We’ve gone to our cottage, hanging out with my brother- and sister-in-law. Today it’s raining, but that’s OK. I’ve done some crochet, gone to the small flee market and even did some cleaning!
Ha! Now I don’t have to do anything more today… maybe play some games.
The crochet pattern is from A Creative Being and is called Picots and Petals Mandala, you can find it here. Loved working with this pattern! It worked up really fast, especially as I used Drops Paris cotton and a 4 mm hook.
The interesting part was that when I added red it suddenly turned to a Christmas doily…
We went to the small flee market up the road after lunch and I found a small book and two small boxes. The book I’m going to alter into a small art journal, only using the covers. The boxes, I think I can use for some alteration and assemblage. Almost the best thing is that they were free! My husband bought a soda siphon and we got my things without any cost. Isn’t that great!?
In the afternoon my mother-in-law invited us for some freshly baked vanilla buns and chocolate cake. Totally delish.
Pretty much a perfect start to a vacation.
Hope all is good with you. Whether you’re on vacation or not.
Changed the layout and header. Yay! Love the picture I used for the header. It’s a spread I did a couple of weeks ago. I still haven’t added any word or journaling… not sure if I want to…
The original spread looks like this:
The layout might change a bit, but for now it’ll make do.
Have a good one!
This spread was inspired by a song by Coco Rosie. I love the picture of the moon, found at Graphics Fairy, and the crow.
