Whimsical wednesday - alter it.

I have chosen to alter a Tando Heart printer tray. As I wanted to add a mini book, I cut the inside frame to make room for it. The "compartments are built up in three layers of chipboard , so i was able to cut and change them quite easily.

 This week we are sponsored by Sweet Ideas who are giving $10 to spend in their store.

I painted the edges with white acrylic paint and then on the second coat, added some brown.I stamped randomly over this with Stephanie's stamps and  I then added some crackle glaze over the top. I used some MME miss Caroline paper to the background before i stuck the "compartment" layers on.

The butterfly is die cut and then embossed with stampendous aged ivory embossing powder.

I had some metal charms free with a recent  paper craft magazine and used some of these to fill the compartments.

The mini book is just 1 3/4" x 2 1/2 "  and I have stamped using Stephanie's stamps on every other page

I have inkled every page and also stamped with a stamping up floral stamp around the edge of each page.

The flowers were just punched circles ,spritzed with glimmer mist and scrunched. when dry, i added a brad and punched some leaves.

Do pop over to the main blog to see the wonderful projects from the rest of the DT.
