An Altered State

It's the first Saturday of Spring and we have a forecast of a wintry mix for tomorrow....oh my! But today is sunny and warm so I will enjoy that. Welcome to this week at Sugar Creek Hollow where we want you to alter something in a vintage/shabby style.




I found this frame at a  local thrift store for a dollar and decided to see what I could create. I used some paint to cover the unfinished wood part before stamping and distressing. My panel was created in the My Digital Studio software using various elements. I love the script background paper and the way using drop shadows makes the elements appear to be on different levels. I added a couple of real brads, lace, a key and pin.



The blues and browns are the colors that I used in our guest room so this works perfectly as an added
piece of decor. The blue gloves are my late Mother in laws and the lace runner was crocheted by Rick's great grandmother.






Here is a peek at my room.


Hope you can stop by at Sugar Creek Hollow and join us this week for this fun challenge.
This week we are joined by our Guest Designer Sandra Mathis whose blog is Sandy's Stamping Scene . Be sure to check out her lovely card and stop by for a peek at her beautiful work. 

Happy Weekend!
