Thanks for Coming to Our Ustream Show! Altered Glove with Prima Butterfly Collection and Tim Holtz

Hi, this is Darcie, thanking you for coming to our April Ustream show. We had a great time as always, and made this girly-girl project, an altered glove and vintage-inspired mini album. Sheri at www.shycraftygirl.blogspot.com won the giveaway:


You can see how it was done on our Ustream Show. We also post to our You Tube Channel - ScrappyCamperSisters everywhere.  The vintage glove was decorated with lovely Prima flowers from the Butterfly Collection by Jodi Lee and other Prima flowers from my stash. I also used some Prima trims and lace and pearls from my stash. Use and enjoy your stash peoples! The glove and flowers were sprayed with shots of  Prima Bloom sprays, Cotton Candy and Berry Wine. I accidentally forgot to record the making of this glove, so you won't see the terrifying moment when we sprayed the glove and flowers with the VERY DARK berry spray at my viewers' request lol. But it came out great! The sprays are wonderful, very rich and you can decide how you want them to look by spraying near or far. 


The mini, mini album design is based on Victorian velvet albums from that day. It was made to fit inside the glove and would make such a great gift for Mother's Day, engagements and weddings, birthdays, you name it. 




I used the Tim Holtz mini cabinet cards and papers from the Prima Butterfly Collection to make it. The cotton velveteen has gold embroidery in it and was from a dress I purchased at a thrift store. I wanted to tie in the gold, so I added some gold gilder's paste to the top of the Tim Holtz metal photo frame. You could also do this with gold Distress Paint. 


I used Therm-o-Web Deco Foil glue and foil in Rose Gold for accents inside the album. It ties in the gold and also looks like German scrap when you put it on top of die cuts.






Fortunately, we realized that I wasn't recording when I altered the glove, so I made another one on the show and I just love how it came out. It was done with more Prima but this time we kept it neutral with gold accents and used the Tea Dye Bloom Spray on it. Our friend Kerri, ikerrilove on Ustream, even suggested putting a ring on the finger and giving it as an engagement gift. How cool would that be? 





Our viewers are so creative and love to come up with ways to use our projects! Other ideas that came up during our show for using a glove were:
  • Garden glove with seed packets
  • Work glove with gear-decoration for a man
  • Child's mitten with a mini album

As we discussed on the show, it's also a great way to use a keepsake from a loved one.  You can insert candy and a gift card instead of the mini album if you like too! (All of my projects are designed to hold candy, as my sister says). Thanks for watching and I hope you enjoyed this project! xx Darcie
