Epiphany Crafts project..






                   Sooo , Not Amish yet.  Only time will tell if I turn to kerosene lamps and prairie dresses.  For now Windows 8 has not done me in.   I wanted to say though...I am so sorry for my last project post and the incomplete wording.   Since I couldn't get online I couldn't finish it .   OY.   Ahhh well.. such is the life of one with out a mother board.  What the heck is that anyway?  Is it like the mother ship?   Anyways today I have a fun little Valentine project to share made for Epiphany Crafts.  I recycled a vintage heart tin.  I sprayed it with Ballet slippers pink and gave it a good dusting of glitter.  I added button layers inside along with velvet millinary leaves and a vintage bottlecap .  I used my Epiphany Crafts circle 25 tool along with the epoxy 25  bubblecaps  to create my focal point ...a sweet little cupid that I tucked inside the bottle cap.  I topped it off with seam bindings, some ribbon to hang it from, and a cute valentine ticket.   This would be a great little gift or use for a decoration for V day!   I love little altered pieces like this.  That is is for me today.  I have several custom projects that need attending too...so behind.   Thanks for letting me share and grumble a bit. hugs,   Cherry

Hi, Cherry! Just spent a wonderful afternoon browsing the incredible masterpieces on your blog - WOW - so pretty, and wonderfully unique! I especially like this "button epiphany" project, and have pinned it to CASE it later (of course, providing all credit back to your blog post). Thanks for sharing your remarkable talent with the rest of us! Valentine Hugs, de
