Altered Spice Rack
For the Survivor contest over at Making Memories For You I needed to alter something, and include a transparency on it. I decided to alter an old spice rack.
I first dumped all the old spices and washed the containers in the dishwasher.
Then I painted the whole thing pink (kinda hard to see in the picture).
Then I sorted through all of my buttons--this took forever. :)
I filled the containers with buttons and decorated the lid with pp and the color buttons in the container (or in some cases--the shape).
Then I put ribbon around the bottom and top of the spice rack...again, this is hard to see in the picture...but it is white ribbon that I tied lots of knots in.
Then I decorated the top.
I created an image from scratch of words that create a flower shape and printed it on a transparency, and then painted around it with 3D paint. Here is the image I created in case anybody wants to use it themselves.
Patterned Paper--Scenic Route, Basic Grey, DCWV, My Minds Eye.
Ribbon--Making Memories and Stampin' Up
Computer font--Decaying Kuntry
Fancy Pants packaging (this is the scallops that I used on top)
Crystal Effects (I put buttons on with this, but I also made random bubble dots on the pp on top--this is very hard to see on the picture, sorry.)
