a project to share

finally i have something finished to be shared :) 

my first altered project ;) i will share more soon.. :)
okay, here are the "more" to share soon... 
i managed to take pics when making this "welcome sign hanger".. 

1. making of the base
i cut a styrofoam board into a bucket shape, and also cut 2 pieces of cardboard as the "cover". i attached the cardboard (big shape) to styrofoam and then covered them with yellow cardstock. next is the smaller part, a small part of this will cover the bigger cardboard.

2. paint the letters and other elements.  
these are from jillibean! aren't they just perfect! as i only have 1 color of making memories paint, i used my "pastels" to color them (except for the yellow ones).

3. paint them with glimmer mist. 
still didn't feel right with the colors, i spray them all with glimmer mist of tattered angels. i have some colors of these and would like to buy some more ;)

4. making of the flower.
i used crepe paper, some bought from daiso (SGD 2 for 3 colors). i attached the crepe paper on the corrugated flower as the top and another circle cut from stashes as the base. 

here are some close ups:

thanks so much for dropping by :)
God bless you!
