I’m a librarian and love books in every form. These ones are made from matchboxes. Once started I wasn’t able to stop producing them. They are perfect to give notes, coins, vouchers or any other little somethings and can be adapted to many occasions.
When we were asked to do a project themed “50 States”, I wanted to show all them in a different way. The big canvas has room for every single State, but doesn’t presents them in a usual map view. The states are listened in alphabetical order. The biggest challenge was not to get deranged with over 400 die cut characters. Find Heike’s mixed media project HERE on the Imagine Crafts website.

I have never painted and stenciled furniture before. With that said, this project was so easy, I can’t wait to find something else to tackle. This little table was my mothers, so of course it means the world to me. However, it was beyond ugly (sorry mom), but this table needed a little something something. I am beyond thrilled with how it turned out using a few inks, stencil and a Sponge Dauber. Learn how to transform furniture here.
A few days after we were asked to do an upcycling project I got hold of an old and ugly plastic picture frame. There were two choices: chuck it away or pimp it up. Of course I did the last one, and now it is the perfect frame to present a photo showing my beloved Dad in the 1960s. This technique using Creative Medium and Embossing Powder is very easy to do and gives a true metallic retro effect. Make your own picture frame.
It is never to early to start training children to respect our home, Mother Earth, by recycling whenever we can. What might seem to be trash, like this old shoebox, can be turned into a lovely treasure box easily using scraps from other projects. Transform your own show box.
