Flower Basket Upcycling

Hello everyone!

Today I would like to share with you a Home Décor project, I created for SCRAPS N PIECES - The Blog.

On my birthday, a while ago, my loved ones brought me a basket full of flowers! It was so beautiful, but eventually the flowers withered…

The basket, had all the potential, but without the flowers it was a bit dull, with no character… So I gave it a  little boost!


I layered different shades of color and did some distress on the edges with Decoart Chalky Finish paints. 


For the decoration, I used real autumn leaves, which I painted with Distress Oxide Inks and Finnabair Art Alchemy Wax. I also coated them with Decoart Media Clear Crackle Glaze and Soft Touch Varnish.


The flowers and embellishments are painted with Prima Metallic Accents and Finnabair Art Alchemy Wax.



The burlap, inside the basket is decorated with IOD Stamps from the SIGNAGE II set and Ranger Archival Ink Jet Black



Choose a vase to fit inside the basket and decorate it with fresh bouquets on every occasion!

Hope you like it!
Thank you for visiting my blog!

Until next time

Be Brave, Be who You want to Be!

Mixed Media Twin Tags

Hello everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I wish you have an even more beautiful and creative week!

Today I would like to share with you my Twin Tags, a pair of mixed media tags I created by using packaging cardboard. For the colors, I was inspired by the various shades of yellow, purple, blue, orange, pink, and brown, that predominate in nature during Autumn.

I call them twins, because I created them to complement one another.

Could be a mother urging her offspring to follow her dreams, or could be a woman reminiscing her childhood and reviewing her life so far…

For this project, you can find a step-by-step tutorial over at SCRAPS N PIECES – The Blog.


Here are some photos. I hope you like them!
