1ab

Who wants to have a classy, fabulous, stylish, and chic day? Well, then let's share some Couture projects! We have seen so many beautiful Couture creations shared by our G45ers recently, and today is filled with absolute awe-inspiring projects from our Design Team! Donna Espiritu shares an upcycled Couture box that will wow you with its gorgeous layers, flowers, and beautiful embellishments. The amazing Miranda Edney will share a Couture altered sewing machine and mini album! These two will surely inspire any altered art projects, and reminds us that upcycling can be truly gorgeous!

First, we have a colorful, layered masterpiece from Donna! We just love this fabulous project.

"I like collecting and recycling stuff to alter. This box is made out of recycled cardboards. I painted the 6 pcs of  5 1/2 x 5 1/2 square panels with black gesso. And then covered later on with some beautiful papers from the "Couture collection". I had fun embellishing the box as well as the mini-album." ~Donna
