Special little goodies...

                       No cards today....just two of my fave type of projects...altered plaques and a banner.  Both of which I had a lot of fun making.  When I started out today...I had plans to do other projects..but these just kinda happened...on their own.  I love when that happens...letting things unfold as they go.  I guess I was sorta in a sophisticated mood..because both pieces are a little more haaaaaaaammm....classic?  I guess.  The first piece....I took an ornate mini frame and painted it creamy white..and than sanded the dickens out of it to show a bit of the under color.  I than sprayed her with glimmer mist....I LOVE the antique look it brings  .  I use to do quite a few furniture pieces...painting, sanding, and using acyrlic paints to get a worn pantina.  Paint really can add a lot of charm.  To small pieces as well.  I sprayed my lovely seambinding as well...gives it varying undertones.  Of course the scrunched seam binding came from Prarie Bird Boutique!  Patsy's etsy store is the best!  The other project is of course the banner...I actually created the banner pieces myself...and used a ruler to makes the lines etc.  It is made from chipboard.  I wanted a classic black/white scheme....no orange for this one.  More clean and simple.  And a little bling to top it off.  Well hope you liked my sharings this evening.  I will be dipping into my Haloween goodies in a few days.  Can't wait!  Hugs to you all, Cherry

Cherry it is your fault that my craft room is so full of bits of stuff..I keep catching myself asking myself, "what would Cherry do with this??"
The problem is, I never get around to doing things like you do! You inspire me as always...love the little witch!

Everything you create is simple magical, Cherry! I am so in love with that banner, and with the plaque, both. Love the vintage images, love the seam binding, the bling buttons, the antiqued frame...love it all.

I just had to pop back in to tell you again how much I love my banner, Cherry! I've got it hanging in my sunroom already....even though it's still only Sept. ;) I love it so much that you inspired me to try my own banner project today. Not as cute as yours, but it was still fun.
