I finally finished up the project I was working on for my very first commission! I think it turned out really well and I'm pretty pleased with it...the pictures don't do it much justice, I think it looks much better in person...but than what doesn't! So after 10 hours of work and about $65 worth is supplies, it is done! Now it's time to barter for what she owes me for doing it, since we decided to just trade services (she does alot of spa treatments, such as massages, pedi's, mani's, facials, etc....). I altered a chipboard purse and then made two chipboard mini books that insert perfectly into the purse. All the patterned paper(PP) is from Basic Grey's "Scarlett Letter" line (which I think fits Bobbie (the lady I did it for) to a tee! Than I used paint, ribbon, sequins, prima flowers, brads, crystals, glitter, ink, and vellum quotes, etc.... to embellish it. Most of the supplies I used (except for the PP) came from walmart, target and JoAnn's. I think she will be really happy with it! If not then I will just take out her pictures and put my own in and keep it for myself! LOL! In fact I might just have to make another one for myself anyways! Here are some pictures of the altered purse, I will post pics of the mini albums a bit later...got to get my little guy down for a nap and he sleeps where the computer is at!
