An Altered Julie Nutting House

While creating this altered house my goal was to keep it bright and cute. I accomplished this by using lots of bright scraps of Prima papers I had in my stash, along with left over embellishments from previous projects. I started with a white printed background and added pops of color.... and's totally bright and cute. It's all ready for my sweetie granddaughter's bedroom wall.

 Simple details here add so much like the Wire Thread Spiral...

Such a special touch for me is this little resin Angel "A"...

Lots of layers for this little Candie Doll...

Love these bright colored Metal flowers and Wood buttons...

A New Julie Nutting Doll and a Step by Step to Share...

Meet Kiera! She's a beautiful new Julie Nutting stamp from Prima. I had a wonderful time mixing up the Julie Nutting Stamp with some of Prima's hot off the press Mixed Media products. 

 1. Spray Tea Stain Color Bloom spray on a Julie Nutting watercolor paper tag. Dry.

2. Pounce touches of Soft Matte Gel on the tag. Sprinkle Glass Glitter on top. The gel will adhere the glitter permanently.

 3. Add Cigar Box Secrets paper and a doily (cut from our new dies). Edge everything with a metallic chalk edger!

 4. Create your doll using our new Keira doll stamp. Edge all paper edges to give definition to the layers.

 5. Add Kiera to the tag and finish with flowers, Jute Trim, and more touches of gel and glass glitter for a sweet tag filled with magical sparkles
