the class is called a "BOX OF TREASURES"....the idea is to create a box filled with tags, mini books, cards AND memorabillia..
we will be creating a different project each month .. approximately 8 items and then at the end of the year we will be covering and decorating a box to keep them in ... I am using Graphic45 papers as a theme but each class participant can choose whatever papers they wish...

this week the color room has a feminine color palette with soft light and deep pinks and aqua blue-green and cream.. I found it challenging !!!!
I added some Imaginarium designs chipboard .. the tag, the alphas and the heart..
I also altered the Tim Holtz name adding white texture paste and then when dry added blue-green paint over the top.. to create a grungy effect.
and a fave of mine is to use muslin .. I sprayed this with glimmer mist and added it to my cluster..

have a great weekend and thanks for droppin' by
and leaving me some loouvee ...
big hugz .. Heather x
