The Altered Pages design team participated in the challenges this month at Gingersnap Creations and it's been fun. The final challenge was "3 words, 3 papers, and 3 buttons". Here's what I submitted:
After submitting, I decided the piece didn't look quite finished so I added a half circle to the rosette and a touch of distress ink...a bit of an improvement. The image is from Altered Pages' #1855D Beauty in Blue Collage Sheet.
The base is a 1.5" thick wood block painted ivory and sanded a bit to give an aged look.
Tennessee is hot, hot, hot but Clarissa and I braved the heat and went to Nashville one day this week and did a little exploring. Our favorite shop by far was Pangaea. I picked up this little cabinet for my art room. It's all metal and the drawers are just a little larger than a spice tin. I have no clue what I'm putting in it but I had to have it.
