Altered tray for Kameka

Hello friends,
Today I would like to share with you all a project using a lot of shabby goodness.
I altered a serving tray and turned it into something like this. I gave a easel for stand. I gifted this to my friend Kameka. I am beyond happy for the fact that she loved it.
It has alot of Prima Marketing Goodies, Some trims from local shops and Wild Orchid Flowers
I hope you all have enjoyed my post.

May Arts Design Team Call - Round 2

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,
I am proud to present my second - round entry for the Prima Ribbonista May Arts Design team. I am thrilled with excitement as I post this project because May Arts has been my dream company since the day I had started crafting. Two years ago when I was crafting in India, it was impossible for me to get May Arts products because of our poor economy and high custom duty taxes. Now that I live in the USA, I am extremely happy to not only be able to purchase May Arts products but to also apply for their Design Team. I am extremely elated and excited to make it to the second level. Thankyou May Arts for this wonderful opportunity. Its a dream come true.
Let me tell you all about what I have made.I have created an altered banner in shabby chic style using several gorgeous trims from May Arts. I chose to make a banner in order to showcase the many varieties of ribbons May Arts has to offer. The word DREAM on the bannerpersonifies my dream to be a May Arts Design Team member. I used various shades of pink and cream. I loved creating the fairy using beads and May Arts trims. It added a special touch to the project. In the video you will also see me making different kinds of embellishments using a variety trims. For the shabby chic theme I was going for, I felt it best to use products like their sheer ribbons (silky crush being my favorite), some of their beautiful diamond chains,and of course the shabby chic frayed flowers trims. What I love the most about May Arts is the versatility of their products - that they have products for crafters of all styles inlcuding paper crafters, seamstresses, floral/ home decor/fashion designers etc.Here are some pictures to inspire you.
