June Smeared and Smudged Blog Hop


June Monthly Member Blog Hop


You should have arrived here on the June Smeared and Smudged Members' Blog Hop -
you will find the hop order above...

The challenge was  ALTER A FOUND OBJECT.

No cards or scrapbook pages allowed, the item must be 3-D and must have started out as something you found at a thrift store, on the side of the road, in the back of your closet, etc. 

Well, this little gift box has been kicking around my craft room for a couple of years - when my friend Nancy, another expat, was leaving Abu Dhabi, she had several things to 'dispose of' !
This was one...

I decided I would embellish it!

 I started with a Dragonslair digi the frame of which linked to the shape of the box
"Happy and you know it"

I then printed out words from the song and images of hands and feet Smeared Ink images on turquoise blue textured cardstock.

This gave me the two sides and ends:

That left me with the top:


I then found a skull, drawn by my Teamie at LOC, the lovely Lisa Tyrell
which I printed three times in different colours so I could paper-piece the rose together.
By the way Lisa has some June Blog Candy here!!

I then added flowers and ribbon...I have been singing the song all day!

Next you should go to Anna

Happy Crafting!
