I completed several quickies projects this past week. It was hard to select a favorite.
The vintage berry baskets from the peach farm estate sale were waiting to be beautified.
First I pulled out my music flash cards.
Yes, they were already yellowed manila paper,
They needed more distressing.
Into a hot bath of coffee and Rit taupe dye.
I let them soak for about ten minutes.
I stirred them with a metal spoon.
Placed them on a screen in the sun to dry.
See the creased marks?
While stirring I make sure to fold and unfold them.
Also scrape with the metal spoon.
Used one of my cans of hoarded Sweet Pea Pink paint.
Used a cheeky cherub stamp on each.
Finished with a torn cotton ribbon overdyed in Rose.
Sweet, but not complete.
A bundle of flash cards for each basket.
Ready for you to tuck in a small gift or two.
No, I did not forsake my new Cool Ocean Breeze paint.
A bunch of baskets being beautified.
