Crafty Secrets June Challenge ~ Childhood

This months Crafty Secrets designer challenge is childhood, anything pertaining to childhood.



I've had this wooden cube in my alter crate for years moving it around in my searches, so I decided this was a perfect time to alter it using photo's of 2 of my granddaughters.



I printed the papers from the new Crafty Secrets Patterns CD onto white cardstock and cut the pieces to add to each side of the cube, I left the bottom blank. I distressed the edges of each side with my Brilliance Moonlight White ink pad, and added faux stitching with my tracing wheel. I printed 4 photos of my granddaughters on the antique setting on my photo software and punched out 2 of them with my Marvy scalloped punch and the other 2 I adhered behind Tattered Angels chipboard frames that Sandy is selling now. I painted the frames with Tattered Rose Distress Crackle Paint and sprinkled glitter on the wet paint. The J and the J frame are from the same Tattered Angels chipboard.
The sentiment and fairies are from the Childhood Image & Journal Notes booklet, I cut them with a Spellbinders Labels 4 Die. I painted the box feet with my Snow Cap Paint Dabber and adhered them with E6000.
I cut 2 tim mini rosette's from the Pastel Paper Pad and added buttons to the centers.
I added buttons here & there and Kaiser Pearls.
The top is a pink knob I got at Hobby Lobby, it's adhered with E6000.
