Tinker Verve

creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results

A bit of craft fun!

I purchased a new camera this weekend from my sweet friend, Michelle.  I feel a bit lost but I’m working my way through with the simplest of shots…along with some fun craftiness.

crafty fun!

my collaged box


Amber's box

We picked up these paper mache’ boxes at a garage sale Sat. morning and were just itching to make something.  With our craft project, it was fun to put to use a couple of the suggestions that I’ve picked up from Diane recently.  Her recipe for decoupage is equal parts of wallpaper border paste and Elmer’s glue.  I really like how that worked.  The other thing she uses on practically everything is Minwax brown paste wax, which I used on my box.  It gives your project a finished, aged look.

And then…we had too much fun @ Barnes & Noble.

Cinnamon Dolce Latte

Red Velvet Cupcake

????It just didn’t seem right for this book to be in ‘Religious’ section so we moved it…a little.
