Hi everyone!
Ingrid here today with an altered coffee grinder.
When I found this piece at a flea market it was sooo ugly that the woman at the stand said I was getting it for free! LOL!
It had the most ugly deep dark brown color, but with lots of gesso, some beautiful papers, flowers and lace it turned into a lovely project (at least I think so, lol).

or this project I used the Vintage Autumn Basics collection.
12×12: No.II and No.XVI
Also used some papers from the 6×6″ Paper Pad.

he flowers were colored with some Shimmerz paints to match the papers.

And here is my second project with the same papers, just because….
card just becauseMade this card with some left over papers I had on my table.
One sheet of the 6×6″ Paper pad is a great size for cards!
Used a template to create the background and splattered some Shimmerz paints in the same colors as the painted flowers.

Also tucked some of the clocks under the flowers and added some beads and microbeads to create some texture.
