At Anything But a Card, the current challenge is called "hit the books"- you can take that in any direction- alter a book, use a book page, journal, something based on a book, etc. I based my project on The Secret Garden book, and of course I had to use the Graphic 45 papers! At my work, myself and the other two ladies in my department do not have a name plate for our desk/office. I decided it was time I made some!
I used some plaques I found at WalMart- gave them a layer of gesso and then painted the back and sides with acrylic paint, added some Inka Gold here and there, used some chipboard letters I also painted black. Wild Orchid flowers, some border punched of cardstock, and some ribbon finished them off. Now I can take a moment at work and imagine myself in a tranquil secret garden!
Thanks for stopping by!
