OK, so the title is corny hash! Sorry, couldn't help it! As everyone watched the game yesterday, I decided to keep and eye on it, a movie and craft all at the same time! It can be done! LOL! Anyway, I spent most the morning writing a tutorial. You know how that goes with me. One part of my mind on the screen and the other dreaming of a projects and being in my studio! I almost had the blasted thing done, but the urge to create took over, so I dropped everything and headed to my beloved room.
I was going for a heart shrine thing for Valentine's ...Well, I made the box. I wanted to cover the inside with something and thought to myself, what do I have a lot of? I really wanted Tim's Bingo pieces, but had like three (By the way, wonder where all of them went!) and didn't want to get out and make the trip into town. That's when I saw Tim's Alpha Tiles and thought, OK Jimbo, give it a go and see what happens. I liked it. Next, I cut the heart for the center of the shrine...what could I do to it? I sat down at my desk and contemplated different mediums. In front of me sat some micro mini lights that I had purchased for a project at Christmas that never came about. I pulled the lights out of the box, and thought about lining the inside flange of the shrine...NO, what if I wrap the heart with them. Yeah! So I covered the heart with some Graphic 45 paper, pierced a hole through the back of the box and wrapped the lights around the heart. Next, I covered the outside of the box with more G45 paper, added legs and some scallops to the project and called it a day!
I'm sure the pictures don't do justice to the lights, but it really is kind of fun. A great nightlight.
Here's how it came out....
Hope you all have an awesome week...through all the cold, ice and snow even! LOL!
Thanks for coming by!
