EXCITED I AM .....Graphic 45 Guest Artist

 I AM SO EXCITED!!!! I was asked to be Graphic 45 Guest Artist today!!!! It is a dream come true since Graphic 45 is one of my favorite paper companies. So if you go to their blog you will see a large selection of altered projects, cards and layouts that I made for the guest artist spots.
I would like to share my "School Days" project today. I made a mini album book stand from a wood clock that I had for years to display my altered mini album on.
Love the claw feet from Tim Holtz along with the Clock Face from Sizzix they helped me transform my clock to look more like a stand.
 Of course all of the little details helped in that area too. I fussy cut the little girl blowing bubbles out and put a bit of Glossy Accent on the bubbles so they would have some dimension. After it was dried I placed her on some mini spools that I had stained and wrapped with paper. My mini, mini alphabets are from one of the ABC Primer papers, fussy cut and tied together with twine.
 My School Days fence is made from a piece of cardboard that I tore the paper from the front of, distressed with a white paint dabber and cut the top to look like a fence. I added the hinge that I cut, embossed and distressed to the front of the fence once I wrapped it with a bit of brown twine. I also added a few mini albums, ie. basket, hearts, etc.
For the mini, I used one of the sheets of ABC Primer to create the cover and a few of the inside pages.
The corresponding pages are photos of two of my grandchildren on the first day of school. They were discovering their classrooms and desks. I loved how the stickers from A Place of Time worked so nicely with the album.
I added a few of the tags, some of the poems and rhymes to the pages as well.
 A bit of Tim Holtz and Momenta metals are added through out the book  Along with twine, Prima products and ribbon,
 a few tags, clips and staples from the tiny attacher.
And one of my new loves is washi tape so I had to add a bit to the last pages along with a clip for 7Gypsies. I hope you have enjoyed my altered clock that I re-purposed into a mini book stand and that you ook around to see what you can re-purpose around your home. Thanks again for stopping by and hope you will head over to Graphic 45 to see a few more projects that I will be sharing, also I will be sharing a more details on over the next couple of days on some of the projects. Hugs Pammejo
