Hi everyone :-)

Made to more bookends and this are in a more grunge steampunk style.Wanted them to look like it has been in the ocean for 100 years
So fun to create with Tim Holtz papers,equipment and dies :-)




Video





Used a lot of different mixed media products such as paint, distress powder, distress ink, alcohol ink, molding paste and Idea rust medium


Inside the right bookend there is a liquor cabinet.


 They can also e displayed as configuration boxes. 




Left bookend.



Both bookends have drawers build in the stand and in this there is a tiny mini album.
2 1/2 x 2 1/2

The album is made out of 2 strips of papers  2 1/4 x 12 and scored at every 2 1/2 inch.
Then I used some different punches for photo frames and glued together with hinges so there are pockets on the top for tags.

 Close up picture of the top. Made a clock from a gear cut out and an arrow on the side. A little booklet box and bottle all from Tim Holtz. The wheel is from a car building set.


Close up picture of the left bottom.

Made a suite case out of chipboard and used twine and embossing powder to make it look old.
Tag from CTH tag die.

Inside there is a bookmark clock.


 The bookmark is magnetic so it will stay in place. 


 Here you can see the rust effect. 



Right bookend


Industrielle secrets!!
Used TH Arch frames to make a  liquor cabinet and it opened with pulling the chain.

Inside the liquor cabinet there is some bottles filled with liquor for emergency case lol


without the bottles.



Used TH labels tag from a die and have some distressed twine around. Also used Idea rust medium on the bottles and corks. 

 Close up picture of the bottom. The film clock I got from my friend Linda :-)


Ubder the corked domes there is an other bottle for emergency lol.

 Also a corked dome on the top with a light bulb inside. Love the film strip from TH :-)

 The dome and clock is fastened on the chain.

 In the drawer there is an other magnetic bookmark. Used the metal clock keys for both the drawers.

Shabby chic lace shoes makeover

Hi everyone :-)

Got some beautiful laces from my friend Linda at Livartnow and decided to alter some old shoes I did not use any more. So happy how they turned out and will have them for decor in my garden room :-)

The shoes where black and I painted them first with white gesso and then 3 times with white paint.
Then used Claudine Hellmuth multi matte to glue on some thin curtain lace over the whole shoe. Ohh my then they turned out blue after a while.... Did not think about that the multi matte would react with the paint so had to paint all over again with white paint. Then it looked great and the lace structure still shows up :-)


Video


Also used some laces from Annie and here is the link to her beautiful Etsy lace shop,
https://www.etsy.com/shop/msgardengrove1?ref=si_shop

Side of the shoe. Used a lot of different laces and cut them apart. Layered on top of each other and had so much fun playing with all the wonderful laces I got :-)

On the backside I used an applique with pearl dangle that I got from Linda and she bought it at Pavipavia on Etsy.
Here is the link to her shop,https://www.etsy.com/shop/paviapavia


Used a Chinese braided trim around the shoe and this is really good to work with. Also from Annies Etsy shop. Then glued 4 mm flat back pearl trim on top.

Left it open on the front to look like shoelace opening.
Also used a applique on the front and I cut of 2 of the pearl dangle and glued them on the side.
Pearl on the butterfy is from One Little Dreamer and here is the link to her shop,

Butterfy is from WOC and here is the link to they`r shop,

Seen from the other side.

Some pictures without the fabric. 


Made both the shoes the same and now it is time to put them in my garden room :-)


So fun playing with laces and cut them apart :-)
