Altered Shadow Box (DT Project for

I wanted to create a small shadow box to go with a couple of canvases, so there would be lovely trio for a wall hanging display. I went with a guitar shaped shadow box, as this project is personalized with a senior photo of my niece and she plays every kind of instrument under the sun, but her favorite is the bass guitar. I used tons of Wild Orchid Craft, Prima, and Petaloo flowers. I used a few Prima embellishments, such as the Prima lightbulb, the clock face and clock hands. The wooden embellishments such as the lamp, music note, skeleton clock, street sign, 'Love' word and mini wings all came from I used Recollections paper called Portobello Road, purchased at Micheals Craft Stores. I used Lindys Stamp Gang shimmer spray in Whale Watch Blue and Tim Holtz White Picket Fence Stain for the top of the guitar.  Here's the pics!

Shabby Chic Altered Wooden Piano (DT Project for SaCrafters)

I could not pass up the chance to altered this 3D Wooden Piano from It comes ready to assemble and is very easy to do so. There is a lot of detail to what I've created, so for this particular project, I'm going to let the pictures do the talking! I will mention that  I used several wooden products from SaCrafters store....from the wooden music notes, to the wood words/sentiments, hot air balloon, wood scroll and wood "xo"! For the paper lines, I used Prima Romance Novel, Prima Time Travelers Memories and a sheet of FabScraps! The resin and metal embellishments all come from Prima as well as some of the flowers. The rest of the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
I hope you might make one of these for your self! Here are the photos:
