What better way to round out the work week than with THREE amazing altered art projects from 3 amazing designers?! We think that is the best Friday idea! Donna Espiritu, Katie Zoey Ho, and Solange Marques will WOW you today!
First, Donna shares the best idea with our Matchbook Box Staples! This creative storage is genius!
"For this month, we were asked to create a project that embodies our experience as a Graphic 45 Design Team member. Being on the team made me think of ideas outside the box. I would always think of ideas that I will use later on, because I also have to consider my creative space :) I only have a small area in our bedroom so everything should have a purpose! hehe For my final project, I used 3 pcs of 8x8 matchbook boxes and turned them to a drawer. Now I have another pretty storage for my laces. Other things that can also be stored here are inks, buttons, ephemera packs, washi tapes, etc. The possibilities are endless." ~Donna
Next, we have this great project from Katie. We love these incredible details that tell such a fairy tale!
"I have this small piece of wood stump/slice loitering around waiting to be altered. Faires are certainly enchanting and I just couldn’t help it but to cut them out and place them into this little forestry setting. One small little gardening decor that sits well on my palm and good enough to place in a garden." ~Katie
Enchanted Forest 8” x 8” Paper Pad
Enchanted Forest Decorative Chipboard
Steampunk Debutante DCE (Time Flies)
Paper Egg Mache
Filigree Decor Piece
Nature Elements (moss, twigs, leaves, jute straws, golden berries)
Distress Glitter Glue
To close, we have this amazing dressing table from the amazing Solange! Isn't this perfection?
"When I saw this mini dressing table, I just thought on G45 Gilded Lily collection. This is a such classic and beautiful collection, perfect for a feminine piece. I created some texture with crackle paste and acrylic paint. To finish this piece I added some flowers. " ~Solange
