Artful Blogger Tea Party

This post is for artsymama's artful blogger party. I feel somewhat unworthy to join the party goers, and I have no tutorial, but I wanted to share this collage. All you need is a frame, a piece of chipboard cut to size, spray adhesive and lots of old treasures (or new copies of old treasures!). I tore pieces of handmade paper for the background and then started layering. The family picture is one I found in my grandmothers basement. It was torn and going to be discarded. I rescued it! The stamps are from 2 of my grandmothers collections. Some of the labels were from scrapbooking pieces and the ribbons just scraps from other projects. It's been used and displayed in different ways in my home, but for now it's with this grouping on my wall.

I can't wait to see all of the tips and treasure I discover through this virtual tea party! The best part of it is that I'm sitting on my bed with my laptop in my pj's sipping a real cup of English Breakfast tea. So fun!

Jewelry Wall

I'm still unpacking boxes from our move 3 1/2 months ago! I've been needed a place to put my jewelry and this display is what I came up with.
