We love altered art! It's so fun to make gorgeous, dimensional projects. Katelyn Grosart and Magda Cortez share incredible projects that will satisfy our Steampunk lovers and our G45ers ready for Halloween.
Before we jump in the fun, did you know that Cafe Parisian and Off to the Races are now in stores? They are! How fun! Below you will see a great tour from our own Charee Filimoehala with Scrapbook.com!
"By combining the ATC Book Box with a Book Box, both in ivory, I was able to create a fabulous three-dimensional piece. With adding some fussy cut images from the Steampunk Debutante Deluxe Collectors Edition to decorate the inside of my ATC Book Box and the outside of the Book Box it embellished it beautifully. To create the mini album, use the three tags found in the book box and add a large tag to complete your album.
Tip: For adhering the paper to the book boxes, use liquid glue as it’s easier to adjust the placement of your paper.
Tip: To finish the outside of your book box, add a door pull to the middle of your book box as well as antique brass claw feet to the four corners." ~Katelyn

"I’m so excited with this Halloween Project!! It is like if I was playing with all the images of this beautiful collection.. I use a wood painters palette as a base and wood gears which I paint with the traditional Halloween colors! I love purples, oranges and greens! So it was a perfect combination for this home décor..And the Green Vellum gives the final dimensional touch!!
Tip: Paint your wood embellishments and they will look super different! You can use non traditional colors.. Also you can emboss the wood as you do with your stamps!" ~Magda
