Seeing as spring is in the air - I decided for my first project to 'alter' an empty bottle into a beautiful vase !
Of all the projects I have created for this site - this has to be the fastest and simplest - the way I think they should be - as I know how busy everyone is these days ! So simply clean out an empty bottle or use a jam jar or any used glass container. Using a stripe of Cartographer Paper - I stuck it onto the bottle using double sided tape. Next I added some of the prima embellishments and flowers I had left over from my previous project (the baggage case mini album) - and stuck them on using Glossy Accents. Finally I wrapped a piece of twine around the neck and stuck on a Prima wooden butterfly element - and there you have it - all finished !!!
Closer look at the bottle and detail on it.
And of course because its March and that time of the year- I had to add a few daffodils from my garden into it! Now it really feels like Spring !!!
I couldn't sign off without doing one last LO! I got creative again with one of my favorite products this year - gelatoes ! I rubbed on 'snow cone' on the top of the page - sprayed it with water and watched it run. Next I added some glimmer mists and it created all sorts of patterns for me on the page! Using a sheet of paper from the Cartographer range - and stamping the back of another page with the cartographer stamp - it formed the basis for my LO. I added in a variety of embellishments - from paper clips to Heidi Swapp lettering, to tags and Tim Holtz washi tape !
As a mark of appreciation I made the above LO as a huge THANK YOU to Cardz n Scrapz for having me as one of their designers for the past few months. I have loved the experience and the joy of taking on so many new challenges - it has definitely increased my creativity and my passion for scrapbooking - so thank you again. May I also wish the new designers the same enjoyment I got from this whole experience and I can't wait to see your wonderful creations !
