Dresser - Make over part #3

So... i gave the dresser a second layer of paint. After drying..i distressed the edges a little bit by sanding with sandpaper and a sandblock.
I don't wanted the look to much shabby....only a bit...used!


I have coated the dresser with a sealer, you normaly apply on wallpaper..to make it washable...

Now...i have to make the holes a little bigger, to fit the door - knobs

Here again...the before and after

I still have to finish the feets (:o)

Happy sunday..and thanks for watching

Mini - Book - Neck - Chain

Grungepaper is awesome (:o)
I also made a mini book from grungepaper. I used the new 7 Gypsies Tissue Paper, some stamping and embossing...and... some gifts from Zuzu (:o) Oh..and about Zuzu...the idea for the chain is also from her blog. Take a look here. I don't know which size she used, but it looks amazing. As you can see, i used a 1 3/8" ( 2,6 cm) punch...really tiny..











Thanks for watching and happy scrappin' sunday....the look out of my window is like november..

Stamping on fabric

Still waiting for summer..so i thought i'll stamp something in bright colours to make the day shiny (:o)  I was interested, how the ink looks on fabric. First i wanted to make another atc but the stamp is too large and i wouldn't cut the legs of. Can't remember where i've seen this idea....but i hold it in mind because i had the stamp already.
Don't know jet, what i'm going to do with....(little girl's purse?)...but i think it looks funny (:o)

CD Purse - Recycling and stamping

Amy made a CD Purse for the June Artful Bag Challenge on Frosted Petunias.
Her purse inspired me, to make one for myselfe. Click on her name to see her creation.





I used Fashionista stamp from Hampton Art, some french script stamps from Stampin up and the lady on the right side is from Crafty Individuals C - 322. Stamped with brown archival ink and distressed with StazOn in bronze.

I hope you don't get bought about my vintage mood. (:o)
Thanks for watching and your nice comments. Looooooooooooooooooove it!!!
