Dragon's Dream TIO New DT Piece

This time it's Elizabeth to decide the recipe and she chose the letter I and buterflies.

As you have probably noticed I am a bit of a music nut and some songs just stick with you no matter what, so my instant inspiration was John Lennon's Imagine.

I based the tag in Paperartsy Fresco Finish Amethyst and stamped the flower from a hotpix plate by them too.  then I set about getting the right part of the song, not the most obvious part, but one that means more to me.  Living for today, rather than what may have been or what may be.  I used Tim Holtz word stickers to make the phrase, I used a rub on to highlight the capital I and then cut three butterflies from three different dies - Cheery Lynn (steampunk style one) Tattered Lace (Bottom left) and the middle one was a freebie on a magazine.

Altered Eclectics DT peice - Fleather topped box

For this box I started by playing with the Sheena Douglass - Faux Leather technique with a lump of Kraft card and some water and glycerin.

I used the finished product to cover a papier mache box lid.  I covered the rest of the box with Debbi Moore's Shabberdashery Midsummer Night's Dream paper, and topped it with a wooden key embellishment embossed with detail copper and a ribbon.
