Easter Basket Project - Just a Few Friends

Happy Easter to all and thanks for visiting our March Hop!  Just a Few Friends has been steadily working on creating and altering a easter basket! We were challanged to create our project using the following, baskets.. you could do a card, a mini album or alter a basket, as long as there is an easter basket somewhere on the project... I decided to do this cute little wood basket that i had and i wanted to give it a vintage easter feel.  Alot of the easter images i used there are easter baskets on the pictures as well.  After lots of cat naps, growling and clawing, I finally got this project done.  It was a challenge for me i must say for sure..  So here is my photos of my easter basket project for just a few friends blog hop...

Inside the wooden basket i decided to do up a few decorated tags.  I was saving this beautiful Cross charm for the right project and i thought what a better way to use it than on a easter project..

 This is a close up of the box with out the tags inside

This is the cover of the tags with the charms moved to the side so it shows the easter title and image.  I love these vintage images

Grandma's Sewing room - Shadow box

So there was a challenge that i started in a group on face book called scrappy diva's.  The challenge was to do something that was outside you box and something that you always wanted to try but just were timid to ruin it or not really know what to do with.  I knew i wanted to do a sewing them, but that was as far as it went.  We had partners and my partner gave me a few challenges to add to my project.  I had to use a stencil, do some layering and use the color aqua or violet in my project. So i painted the box butter cream and then i painted on a homemade walnut stain that i made to distress it.  Once i did the brick wall stencil and saw the distress ink come through i thought it would be cool to make it vintage style like a very old fashioned room.  I ripped pieces of paper and distressed them with walnut ink and curled some of the paper, i wanted it to look as if it was wall paper that was very old and kinda peeling off the walls.  I had alot of fun making this out to look like a sewing room.  It was really fun using a bunch of little things to make it look like a room.  Thank you for stopping by and i hope you like it.
