Hi Everyone, Kim here to share with you my altered Key. These Wall Art Keys are new in Gina's store and I just adore them! They come in a few different styles, and today I have chosen to alter the Gear Heart one. I have done it up in a Girly Grunge style.

Here you can see the lovely Steampunk Lady who I have embossed with a few different colors and added a lovely flower to her "hair". I used the Prima Fairy Belle paper for the inside of the heart, but you could easily have put a photo inside as well, it would be great for that! These keys have an overlay which goes on top of them and in this section you can see the gears on the heart which I have also embossed and added metal embellishments and flowers to give a bit of a feminine touch.

Here you can see a close up of the center of the key, I love that these Wall Art Keys have an overlay so you can alter them in so many different ways. They also come in several different shapes too, so please check out Gina's Store for more info on them!

In this section, I have used an Exclusive Design by Kerry Fellowes, her Butterfly of Gears, I really love this piece, and Kerry will be having more designs coming soon! I continued the Fairy Belle paper down the bottom part of the key and added some wooden letters, which I painted black to spell out the word "Fly". A chain, Prima zipper sentiment, and metal wing charm finish off the look of the butterfly.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Hello Everyone! I would like to share with you my version of the Themed Shadowboxes. I have chosen to use the Sewing Theme Shadowbox. I am an avid sewer and wanted this to hang above my sewing table. I have done it in soft pinks, blacks and ivory colours to match my room. The Themed Shadowboxes come with their own shape sets, so it makes it convenient to have all your pieces ready when you go to make your shadowbox.

Here is a close up of the Sewing Machine which comes with the Shadowbox set. I have covered it in some lovely Bo Bunny Paper, and embossed the needle and hand crank to give them a metallic look. you can see on top I have added a tiny spool and some vintage lace. Behind the sewing machine is one of Gina's skeleton clocks to finish this section off.

Here you can see a close up inside the box. I have used the scissors and dressform from the shadowbox set, along with some vintage pattern paper in the background, some wood letters and laces from my stash. You can also see some spools from my sewing stash I have used to place a tiny metal sewing machine on and have surrounded the shadowbox with Gina's new button borders, I love these! I have also cut some of the roman numerals from the skeleton clock and embossed them and placed them around the shadowbox as well, I don't waste any of this gorgeous chipboard lol!

And finally, you can see at the top of the shadowbox I have used one of Gina's new Scribbled Line pieces. This one looks like a bow, so I embossed it and had it coming from the needle in the sewing machine, so it looks like thread flowing out from the machine.
 There are several styles of these to choose from, so something for everyone, and its so great that you get the shape set with it!
Thanks for stopping by today.
