DIY Design Studio, AlteredPages and Our Partner

March is USArtQuest Partner month at AlteredPages

Hello to everyone on this fine Sunday!

I was in the mood for Spring and found the perfect way to utilize AlteredPages, DIYDesignStudio and our partner, USArtQuest for a project.

I began with my wood flower picture holder available at    

The wood pieces are sanded and ready to paint or add papers and embellishments, high quality wood and MDF pieces make for fun decor and gifts.

First I traced and cut paper for the front of the flower.  Before adding the paper, I painted the edges, I could have used inks or even an inkpad to color the wood.   I adhered the paper with PPA glue, edged with a yellow inkpad and added one of our darling spring flowers.  

Then PPA* was brushed on the edges and Prills* were added to the glue.  

*This universal acrylic adhesive and medium, has been extensively studio-tested on literally every type of paper, plastic, metal, wood & glass. Substantially different than any other wet adhesives, PPA is non-sticky when wet and absolutely non-tacky when dry.

*Prills are natural, non-toxic hole-less beads. Use Prills for all arts and crafts, Hot Melt Craft, Mosaic Work, Jewelry Making, Resin Accents and textural additions for all type so paint and pastes.  Adhere Prills with any clear drying adhesive or tape.

The project is simple with pizzaz for a great Spring gift, bunco or card club prize, or for your own display of grandkids or special vacation photos.
