Good Morning! Today I have a piece of Altered Art to show you. I found 5 of these wooden words at my local store that all say a different word like 'Faith', 'Angel', 'Country', etc.. I thought they would be a fun thing to play with and I could sell them at my consignment store. The one I'm showing you today is 'Faith'. I simply painted it a bright Kelly Green, and added some dots with a white gel pen. Then I added some designer paper to the base and some Nestabilities 'Flying Beauties' and ribbon for embellishment. Easy Peasy.
I wish I had some close-ups to show you of the butterflies, but I forgot to take pictures of them before I carted this off to the store. I used Vellum to create a second layer to the big butterfly. All the butterflies are embossed and have pearl accents on them. I also added some chalk to highlight them.
Have a great day! I have the day off today, so I KNOW I will! Amy

  3. This is absolutely beautiful Amy and I'm sure will be a big hit at the store! The butterflies were an awesome idea and just gorgeous!!

  4. This is really sweet. And how entrepreneurial of you to see something plain and know that you can make something beautiful and make money from it.
