November DT Projects

Hello everyone! I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and show you my November projects.

My name is Leslie Owens and I have been crafting in some form or another for over 20 years! My sister taught me how to crochet when I was a teenager and then I learned to cross stitch. I then started working with wood tole painting and then I found my passion-scrapbooking and paper crafting. I am so honored to be on the MB's Treasurista Design Team! Thank you Misty for this wonderful opportunity!

So on to my projects....

The first project is some altered wood letters that spell out DREAM. I just love this phrase as it reminds me to never give up on your dreams. My scraproom is pink and green so I wanted something to match my room.

I used several of the products from the store including the pink 1" crystals,white lace w/light pink pleated trim,clear acrylic wheat sprays,light pink Chinese braid trim,pink acrylic flower sprays,white braided sequin trim, and pink acrylic butterfly stem.

I love how the project just came together beautifully with all of the gorgeous products from the store.

For my second project I altered one of the Michael's balsa wood boxes. I wanted to go with the blue and brown color scheme. The title of the box is Life's Little Treasures and that is Misty's slogan for the shop. I thought it would be a wonderful project to send to her.

For this one I used the brown Chinese braid trim, the blue acrylic flower sprays,brown and white baker's twine, and the light blue crystal diamonds, plus some other miscellaneous trims and flowers from my stash.

I hope you have enjoyed my projects and I cannot wait to show you my December ones!!

Please don't forget to congratulate Ashley on her one year anniversary of blogging

So here is my Anything but a Card project!!!

Here are some pics of my "Winter Wishes" Frame...

I created this frame using a one dollar Michaels wood frame. I started with a mixture of pale blue and suede acrylic paint to paint the entire frame. I distressed the edges of the frame with frayed burlap distress ink. I then embossed the frame using a snowflake stamp with a la mode sparkle embossing powder, then i used the "Holly Flourish Border stamp by Hero Arts with a la mode white embossing powder. I used some tear drop pearl trim on the top part of the frame opening; that will me coming to my shop (MB's Treasurista) soon. I framed the inside of the frame with pearl trim from my stash. In the bottom left corner i used iamroses flowers, recollection leaves and a snowflake button. I also added acrylic wheat leaves and a blue acrylic flower that i have available in my shop. I finished the frame off with a cute "Winter Wishes" sentiment that i typed and printed on card stock from word, then i added a glittered snowflake and glittered tree. Oh, and for the picture i just used dcwv design paper from the luxury mat stack, until i find a picture. Hope you enjoy it!!!:)

Shabby Blue Ornament

 Ok so i started with a one dollar paper mache ornament that you can get at michaels.


I made this ornament for the November Ornament Challenge at CCL (Creating the Crafty Life) hosted by Lina. This challenge was so much fun!!! I can't wait to make more ornaments. I painted it with pale blue acrylic paint. Then i distressed the edges with frayed burlap distress ink. I wrapped some gorgeous sequin trim from my stash at an angle around the ornament. i used some pearl trim and placed it along two sides. For the top i made a vintage Victorian type stick pin just without the bottom beads and pushed it in the top. Make sure you add some hot glue under the bottom bead cap before you stick it in the ornament. To finish it off i added some bead caps to an eye pin and stuck in the bottom of the ornament also using some hot glue for extra security. i added a little dangle to the bottom that i got from michaels last year. I love the way it came out. It is so my style like a blue shabby chic winter ornament :) 

Please stop by and check out Creating the Crafty Life for more challenges and the most friendly community around :)

Thanks for dropping by to check out my project!
Have a wonderful crafty day!
