This will be a 7+1 swap, you will get one back.

• A charm, either handmade or store bought (attached to the garment pin or swivel clasp)
• A bead or button.
• Please include your name and youtube/blog name.

PLEASE be fair to everyone participating. If you’re unable to continue the swap, please notify me asap. I would like for everyone who has signed up to be able to receive as many as they have sent to me.

Altered Canvas for a Friend Finally used the Mariposa Paper

I made this Altered Canvas for a good friend for her Big Birthday! The canvas is a 12x12 canvas that I purchased at Joann’s. First I painted the sides and about an inch of the front with several matching colors of paint. I then stamped the corners with black ink and rubbed walnut stain over everything. On 2 of the corners I used Bead Gel (Clear) and let it dry. I love how it provides some texture to the corners. I used a 6x6 piece of cork board that I had and added trim to the bottom. The flowers were from I am Roses and the chip board pieces are part of the Mariposa paper collection. The frame was from the dollar section at Michaels (last year) as well as the metal embellishments. I attached the frame so that it can be removed to add a picture.

This is my first altered frame and I know that it won’t be my last!

Check out this Blog Candy From Stacy

Wednesday, September 1, 2010

I created this travel journal for my trip, I can't wait to fill it up with journaling and treasures that I find along the way. I created this using lunch bags and chipboard. The binding is Grunge board cut to size, painted black and sprayed with Lindy's Stamp Gang Mists and then I used Gold Rub and buff. The flower is from Arlene from Butterfly Kisses. I used Basic Grey "Basics" paper, which was perfect because it lends itself well for writing or journaling.
