Now, how about some original Rare Oddities projects from Diane's Workshop? We're in love!
"A top hat decorated in Rare Oddities. Brews and Potions paper is used as the band around the hat. This cut apart page has so many different graphics to choose from. Butterflies and flowers are made using Charmed, I'm Sure, Brews and Potions and Articles of Antiquity. There are so many owls on the Ghostly Greetings page to fussy cut and birdcages with crows. It's hard to decide which graphic to use. Ribbons and a leather flower along with a G45 key finished it off nicely!
A potion bottle is covered with a cut part from Articles of Antiquity and tied with ribbon and a clock face. Enjoy!"
"The picture frame is covered with Charmed, I'm Sure. The Rare Oddities Signature page was framed and flowers from Brews and Potions, Articles of Antiquity and Ghostly Greetings were
added along with a G45 metal butterfly."
