G45 Halloween Rejuvenation Challenge

Another creative challenge I have entered:  Graphic 45 has challenged us to 'rejuvenate' an object from around the house using G45 paper to create a Halloween project.   I have used G45's Halloween in Wonderland papers. Please help me out by voting/liking it on FB link below.  Here are pics of my project:




the before picture


 I picked up this frame months and months ago at a thrift store.  They let me 'have' it for a whopping $1.50 cuz it was missing the frames hanging on the left so it was obviously useless, right?? Wrong! 




completed project--front side


close up of Alice


close up of backside made with Halloween in Wonderland paper---cut out the individual cards and mounted them over Tim Holtz filmstrip ribbon


completed project backside


closeup of memory frame with 'drink me' bottle (filled with glossy accents with Lettuce Alcohol ink mixed in)

Rickety tree die used for tree (got this from a new crafty friend, Leiann); Cheshire cat cut from Halloween in Wonderland paper.


Pocketwatch from Tim Holtz Alterations collection; image from G45 papers.

another closeup to show the cut out watch face (from G45 paper) inside mini pocketwatch

The fun thing about this challenge is that people will be able to 'like' their fav project on Graphic 45's FB page.  You can view mine here.  You will have to login to FB once you get there so the 'like' button will show up.  The winners will receive G45's Christmas Emporium line, how cool is that??!!

Also adding this to this month's challenge at Alter it Monthly:  Trees
As always, tell me what you think.

It's a great piece. I'm especially drawn to the little detail of the film strip tape. It's the kind of small thing that makes a piece great instead of good.

Thanks for sharing.
