she's a pretty young thing

 It's funny how sometimes a digital piece will sparkle  the muse to making a cut and paste piece of art as well 
  I as soon has I had finished this digital  layout  I knew it would make a beautiful a soldered box 

 the image is from here  http://www.deviantscrap.com/shop/product.php?productid=21069&cat=&page=

 I also did this one  and I'm thinking this would work as a soldered box too

The tale of the LadyRook

Tale of the ladyrook

A tale of a cursed prince who was bound to live his life in the shape of a monstrous giant bird until the day he could find a fair maiden with a true heart would willingly feed him from her hand .

 Many scared villagers daughters were sent to feed the giant Rook but all were too afraid to feed the Rook with their hands , they could not see passed the sharp beak and claws.

But one day a beautiful maiden with a true heart felt sorry for the big bird
and with kind words began to hand feed the mighty Rook 

and the curse was broken the mighty Rook became the handsome prince again

The prince married the fair maid with the true heart and they lived happy ever after.

 The end 

 I made all my pictures with the new  Ars Longa Renaissance kits  from Itkupilli  available  now at  Deviant scrap  

Also credits to Cryztal rain

Altered books ........ wonderland style

 I do enjoy the process of taking an vintage book and turning it into something pretty.   This is  my latest offering...   it is to go on the mad, mad tea party table on Saturday.   It's a wonderful display piece.

 not that old book aren't pretty  but some need a little help. 

Vintage books  very easy to find... you don't want it too old, pages don't  want to be falling to pieces  but it does need a little age to it...   For this project  you need to remove the front and back covers  but  don't throw it away you can use them for another project.
 The page folding is the boring part of this project.  I sat in front of the TV folding the pages back ... 
Now decide  Do you want to stand it up or  lie it down?     Glue the book together  and then glue to a base.  I used a christmas glittered snowflake shape  but Micheal's craft stores have cake boards that would work too. 

Now time for the fun bit.....  images and 3D embellishments.  The mushrooms were made with paper-clay and moss  and glitter will add a whimsical magic to any project.  

It has me itching make another one soon.  
 Maybe a halloween theme .... now where did I put that book !


 And make sure you pop back  On Saturday  for my mad , mad tea-party ... hosted by the one and only http://afancifultwist.typepad.com
