~~~I've moved to www.halleshobbies.com ~~~
I'm an artist and SAHM from the upper mid-west. In addition to my passion for paper art and mixed-media; I enjoy sewing, painting, photography, jewelry making and gardening. I love finding ways to reuse, re-purpose and recycle everyday items into art or other basic utilitarian objects.
I'm working at getting back to the basics: healthy food, reduced chemical load in our home, exercise and spending time with family.
In the continuing effort to use what I have...I decided to make a new wrap to go around this candle tin.
I got the candle a few years ago after Christmas on clearance...super deep discount that I couldn't pass up. Especially when I realized that the ugly Christmas paper would come right off.
I used watercolor paper as my base. The background color was achieved with distress inks, dress pattern tissue and found text.
I sifted through some of my new stash from a couple of swaps. I'm sure some of you may recognize some of your stuff. I love new fodder. It can be very inspiring.
This is going to be a gift...I hope the recipient likes it!
