Make over time.


Altered Recycling/Re-purposing  is our new challenge theme today over at Sugar Creek Hollow.
Time to give the boring box on the left a make over.
I didn't have an end result in mind, so just got going with a coat of cream paint to begin with. Which when dry I promptly covered with some pretty papers.
Well I did say I had no plans.


Next came the top panel.
The card was shaded  randomly with Weathered Wood, Shabby Shutters and Spiced Marmalade distress inks.  I used my Inkadinkado Poppy stamp and a well used old French script  stamp, stamping up with the DI greens.
This then was cut to size and layered up with a piece of lace trim.




So with the panel made,  it was at the assembly stage. As always with my love of  vintage/shabby chic ,  ribbon, lace and flowers needed to be added.



I hope you will pop over to see what we all made and welcome our Guest Designer for this challenge Laney, you can find her here.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look, I always appreciate your comments

Gorgeous!

Can't believe how boring the box looked before you got your little fingers working their magic on it Yvonne. The end result is a gorgeous vintage work of art.
