Giving a Cute Little Cupcake a Home!

Hello again!

During the month of June, you will see our Design Team focusing on projects that incorporate wood. We are very proud to be partnering with Foundations Decor to make this a big success.

Today, I am starting Phase 1 of a two-part project where I create a cute little "Home" for a very pretty cupcake.  Sounds a little funny, I know, but come along and you won't be sorry.   

Here is a little sneak peak... 

I began with this cute little cupcake, pretty papers and paint...

Next, came a coat of paint...

Then, a bit more paint to embellish and a bit of sanding to give the piece a bit of a distress.  

I began applying some of that pretty paper and a beautiful butterfly image as well...

Then, it was time to assemble...

Here you see that side one is done.  Yep, this is going to be a two-sided, two-part project.  It's nice to be able to change up the color scheme for different occasions or even just your mood. 

And, side two...

Just look at those pretty glittery flowers...

I hope you enjoyed Part 1 of my cupcake project. Part 2 will be here in two short weeks. 

Remember to check out the supply list below. 
Many thanks to Foundations Decor for the inspirational wood pieces!  
Have a GREAT weekend!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
