Most Unique Altered Piece?
Posted 12 July 2005 - 07:07 PM
I haven't done much altering yet. Only a few notebooks. I have been saving lots of things that I think would be fun to alter - cd's tins, notebooks, toxes, clipboards.
Oh! I did alter a tag that came on some clothes. It was heavy, like chipboard, and I covered it with patterned paper and added a nice big flower on it then used it as a gift tag.

I used coordinating scrapbooking papers to alter it. Each drawer, top and the sides, used a different paper. I painted some of the edges with acrylic paint and used some ribbon along the sides. I used decoupage glue to stick all of the paper to it and it has held up very well.
I could swear I had a picture of this thing, but I can't find it at the moment. She loves it, though, and it was a fun project to do.
It's a lot of fun to do things like that. In fact, if you will look at the rotating GIF on the front page of the Boutique, you may be able to see another box that I did recently using Mandy's Wallflower papers. painted the sides of the box and used the papers to make a really cool top for it.

To have a friend is to have a shoulder to cry on, a hand to hold and an extra pair of legs when yours are too weak to stand alone...
I have been living buried in books and writing classes... as an added note I must say that it is rather scary when you start dreaming and all you can see within your dreams is words floating everywhere!
