"Making memories and celebrating moments with pretty crafty things!"

I’ve got a grungy project to share with you today:)
This is my “Grungy Flower Pot” I made for round #2 of the Discount Paper Crafts  design challenge! The post I made has handmade grungy flowers in it and will be sharing the tutorial on it in the next post! It was fun and easy to make!!:)
Now, the theme was “Girly Grunge. The techniques we were to use were 2 types of distressing. They were Ink distressing and paper roughing/distressing, I love distressing!!
Here is my video sharing of the project! 
Detailed pictures will follow

 Here’s the pail, split, so I can grunge it up! 🙂

 I removed the handles, then put them back once I collaged them too!

 These next two are of either side of the split so you can get a closer view!

The next 3 are of the entire sides of the pail!

 A top view….

There were 5 handmade paper flowers, 2 still growing out of the pot
and then 3 that were bundled and tied with ribbon just laying on top of the pot!
These were fun to make!!


The eggs were covered in strips of old book paper….
then cut in odd halves and used for flower centers of the 2 larger paper flowers!

 See… view!

And inside the pail….

 I used a couple of gears for the base of the 2 flowers!

And then there was a croc!!!

We were to transform it so….
“Off with his head” and turned HIM into a mutant butterfly! LOL

That was fun!!
