altered art

Yay for Monday!

I think while not at 100% that I am finally feeling well enough to be a functioning member of society! YAY! It only took a whole WEEK to make it happen. I feel behind but as part of my New Year’s resolution (yup early) I am getting organized! So prior to sick I made myself a organizational board for things To-Do and the days of the week. You know I’m not very good at altering things so I think this turned out purty well 🙂

I started out with this 7 Gypsies Receipt Holder and spray painted it. The speckles in the coat of paint (which I love now but bummed me out originally) is from it being Michigan in winter and I took it outside to paint and it was way snowing! lol Do what ya gotta do right?

I stayed basically with a blue-yellow-green color scheme with touches of others. The top row has a spot for the days of the week while the bottom row is for extras and over flow. All the papers came right out of my scraps so no new sheets were harmed in the production of this board 🙂 There’s an assortment including American Crafts, Sassafras, Love, Elsie, Cosmo Cricket, Hambly, MLS and Studio Calico. 
Anyone else thinking about the new year yet?

    LOVE THIS!!!! I wouldn't put a thing on it so I can look at it every time I enter the room. 🙂 Love that you used scraps to decorate it too.
