Hello everyone!! Happy WOYWW! Please visit our awesome hostess Julia for all the details!!
BUT FIRST.....(drum roll please)
My work is on the cover of the latest Altered Arts Magazine!!!!!
I made the map and the treasure chest! The map was a super fun mixed media project. I printed out 2 maps, colored them in and cut apart one of them to layer upon the other. On the map I kept whole, I wrinkled it up and re-straightened. I used pastels and inks, and I used modeling paste to make the elevations on the map. Layering the other pieces made even more dimension. Finally, I burned pieces of the map to make it look even older. I placed the map inside of a wood box. I also altered a treasure chest I bought at the party store and staged the scene with pirate coins, costume jewelry from my collection, faux gems and lace! I was soooo excited to get the news I was on the cover. This is amazing and I can't say thank you enough to Altered Arts Magazine!!!
NOW FOR THE PARTY!!!!
I am decorating a white pumpkin from the craft store. I am using faux leaves and I have some jewels and squash I will add too. Hopefully, It will be done by the next party. I figure I can keep it as a centerpiece on the table through Thanksgiving.
Thank you so much for visiting!!! I always reply to every comment I get, and I also try to get to as many other party goers as I can!! Have fun!!
