Linda's January Challenge Project





Hi, everyone!
If you are like me, your scrapbooking tools are taking over! I never seem to have enough containers to hold them all. So, I altered a plain old coffee can to serve as a tool caddy. I covered the can with paper, then fussy cut the border and added it. Tons of Stickles were then added to the images. Then, I used my Imagine to create some embellishments for the back side using the Lori's Garden cartridge.(the first picture is the back side with the Lori's Garden images.) Once that was done (you can see the project at this stage in the last pic) I felt it needed some dimension, so I broke out my Viva Decor pearl pen and went to town adding pearl drops to the design. The ribbon isn't ribbon at all! It's rayon seam binding that I colored with alcohol inks! Hope you like it!!

Hugs!

Lynne,
I bought my Pearl Pen at CHA last year from Megan at AboveRubiesStudio. I think lots of stores online carry them now. They are from Viva Decor. I LOVE these pearl pens!!!
