Vintage Calendar Mini Album

Hi Everyone,

Today I want to share with you this Vintage Mini Album that I created using an Antique Calendar from 1959.  You can watching my video HERE

I found a wall calendar at my thrift store and I folded it to create a mini.

I used Vintage laces, trims, embellishments and these gorgeous paper flowers I found at the thrift store too!

I stained most of the pages to give it an antique look and added a few appliqués and doilies.

The tags are from Prima and I love how it coordinates with the calendar!

I hope you enjoy it and take a look at my video!

Thank you so much for your support!

Enchanting Mixed Media Journal

Hi Everyone,

I am back with my second altered book except that this one is a journal... 

This was the journal before.... 

I found this journal at a thrift store and I fell in love with its pages!  I wanted to make it very enchanting so I used hot glue to create the texture.

I painted it using acrylic paint and Lindys Stamp Gang Sprays.....which I love!!!

I added a few embellishments like moss, prima little nest, frames and this metal birdcage.  I also added a few pieces of driftwood that I have collected from the beach :) 

I had so much fun putting this together and I hope it inspires you! 

Thank you for stopping by!

Vintage Shakespeare Altered Book

Hello Everyone,

With Valentine's Day right around the corner I want to share with you this Altered book that I worked on.  As many of you know I love to collect journals and find very unique books.  I have a big passion for writing and reading and I was so excited when I found this old Shakespeare Book!
Watch the my Video on this book HERE

I found this Shakespeare Book with a lot of his famous plays and books.  I wanted to alter it with a romantic theme of Romeo and Juliet since is my favorite story. 

This is the Before photo: 

I used a tissue paper technique to create the texture throughout the whole book.  

I then used a lot of different sprays from Lindy Stamp Gang, they have beautiful sparkly sprays!!

I added a few vintage appliques from an old wedding dress and a few metal embellishments along with a little bottle to Juliet.  

I had a lot of fun putting this together and I hope it inspires you!

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you all have a beautiful Valentine's Day!
