Altered Vintage Pencil Box

I had this plain wooden box which I was using to house my calligraphy supplies and after seeing its potential, I decided to give it a new lease of life. Given that it would be used to house calligraphy supplies, which included some vintage nibs, I decided to alter the box in a vintage style.

I used Prima's Time Traveller's Memories collection, plus Prima flowers and lace. I also added some metal ephemera and muslin for more of that vintage-shabby look.

I like it when altered objects are both functional and pretty to look at.

Painting with Glimmer Mists

I decided to try painting with My Tattered Angels' Glimmer Mists yesterday and was pleasant surprised by the results. The mists work very much like water colours and best of all, they give off a glimmery sheen when dry.

Oh and please excuse the artwork. I haven't done any painting since school. And that was a long time ago. :D

Callum & Chowder

Here's a layout I created of my puppy, Callum, and his sister, Chowder. Chowder happened to be at the groomers the same time as Callum and we took the opportunity to take a quick photo of the both of them together .

I used Graphic 45's Botanical Tea, Prima flowers and Sassafras alphabet stickers on the layout. Thanks for dropping by.
