Pretty In PINK

Hello again My Dear Sweet Friends
It's just little ole' me. (No Design Team Hat at the moment).

I just want to share a altered project I made using an image by Ching Chow Kauk called "Key to My Heart".  Of course I had to use pink and as you can see I went a little "Pink Crazy".  I want to keep her in a frame so I found an old one from a yard sale and painted it.  I added some of my favorite lace to adorn the top and bottom.  I used some pink acrylic roses I had found at a yard sale.
I do have a list of the Copic colors I used and once I find the list I will add that information to this post.
Thanks for stopping by and saying hello.  I really appreciate it.  
Have a wonderful day! Hugs and smiles

Happy Happy Monday My Dear Sweet Friends
I hope your weekend was fabulous!!  

Today I am sharing a project I made as DT member with Not Just Cards .  

We have some amazing sponsors this challenge and they are:
All Dressed Up
Robyn's Fettish
Milk and Coffee

I used this adorable image called "Tiffany Fairy" from Milk and Coffee.  I just fell in love with her (plus I have a daughter named Tiffany).   This is an altered magnet and measures approximately 3.5" x 5".
I used Copics to color her and cut her out so she would fit on the front of the magnet.  I wanted it to look like she was sitting on an outside wall and just relaxing. 
The DT has some wonderful creations to help inspire you  So come on over and join in our challenge and we can't wait to see what you create.
Have a wonderful day!!
Hugs and smiles Laine K DT Not Just Cards

Altered Wall Hook

Well here I am again My Dear Sweet Friends
I have several Design Team projects going live today and right now I am wearing my Altered Eclectics DT Hat.  For my project I decided to alter an old wall hook and you can see the finished hook below.  I meant to take a photo of the old wall hook but totally forgot.  My bad!!
(This Image is from Fitztown called Fae 21)
This project was a lot of fun and in some ways pretty easy.  I used my Copics to color the image and put it aside while I worked on the wall hook.  I have listed the colors I used further down in this post.  

I have several old wall hooks laying around and decided to use one of them for this project.  Actually what I plan on doing is altering two more later this month with different Fae images (they are so amazing).  I will share all three finished wall hooks once they are done.  

I prepped the front of the wall hook by doing a little sanding to get all the messy stuff off.  I added a coat of sealant and let it dry.  And then all I…

"Go Green"

Hello again My Dear Sweet Friends
I just happen to have my DT hat on with Eclectic Ellapu.  We have a new challenge this month and our theme is "Go Green".  And here is my project for this challenge:

Eclectic Ellapu Challenge Blog

I took and old frame and painted it green.  
I had come across this saying months ago and just loved it.  I decided to save it for something special.  Well it fit perfectly once I added some background cardstock which made me really happy.  I used some extra special lace I found at a yard sale a long time ago and added it to the top and bottom of the frame.  I used an old green leaf from some plastic flowers and added the butterfly on top.  Ironically the leaves I rescued were gorgeous and I just couldn't bear the thought of tossing them out with the ugly flowers.  And I am so glad I kept them (and I have lots left for future projects).

It's been a challenging several years for me and this saying has been very inspirational for me.  It's exc…
