Recycled Flowers

My sister Gini and I love to hit the thrift doors and see what type of treasures we can find.  There is always something that can be altered or reused.  Believe it or not, these flowers/leaves were created using an antique dictionary.  So love everything about them.
Just a bit of Glimmer Mist, ink and of course Cheery Lynn Dies and you too can make these super chic flowers.

Here are all the dies I used on this card

Have a great weekend.

Altered Mixed Media Necklace for KaiserCraft

Altered mixed media art is hot, so I thought I would put my spin on one of my KaiserCraft projects and create a necklace.  I made it from the current Hop Scotch collection.  All the charms were cut from paper, inked.  I then put a colored rivet in each and layered with a glue called Liquid Glass.  This is a product that is offered by Close To My Heart but you could use something  similar like Glossy Accents.  I let them dry overnight and then attached the jump rings, chain and toggle clasp.

I've worn this necklace once but you would not believe the comments I've received on it.  So much fun, so light to wear and really a show stopper.

I have been so blessed through my life to have my parents show me what love is.  Love between a husband and a wife, love between a parent and child, and love between man and God.  They have embraced love and have been such a wonderful example to my sister, my children and myself.  This is a layout I created for KasierCraft that states simply LOVE but to me, that titles hold so much meaning. 

The collection is called " Remember Me " and who wouldn't want it?  The rich colors and elegant poppies are so wonderful to work with. 

I hope you have a wonderful week and I hope you are able to share some love with someone.
