Altered Layout Stand

Happy Monday!! I was on a scrapbook retreat this past weekend and always have so much fun with my girlfriends. And I actually did get some scrapping done. That's always a bonus...on a scrapbook weekend. This month at Citrus Tree Studio, I got to play with a fun altered item. It was the Kaisercraft Layout Stand and let me show you what I did with it.

I covered the stand with blue cardstock from the September Citrus Tree Studio kit. I painted the back white and covered it with a thick layer of Stickles.

I then decided to use the cardboard insert that came in the packaging to create a frame for the stand. I painted the cardboard with stickles and paint and then added my layers, photo and flowers!
I just love these colors, they are perfect for a beach photo of my two cuties.

Lots of rolled flowers and inked and crumpled leaves!

This was such a fun project. Not only do I now have a layout stand but I also have a piece of artwork for my living room. This would make a great gift for a friend or family member. And with the holidays coming up (yes...the holidays are coming!!!), it's a great idea for a gift!

Thanks for stopping by today...Happy Monday!
