Altered Large Clothespins

Good morning crafty friends!

I hope you had a wonderful Easter with your family and friends!!  I had such a blast with the kids!!

Anyway, on to today's post!

I am so excited to share this post with you!!  I'll be giving you a sneak peek of a NEW product you will be able to order soon!!

YAY!!

During a recent shopping trip with my friend I found these large clothespins, that I thought would be fun to alter with Creative Inspiration Paints!!  My kids love crafting with me and well our fridge can only hold so much, plus I love having some of their art work in my craft room, so I thought these would be fun to hold a few of their little things they've created for me.  And I could keep them right on my craft table to see at all times.  

For the pink one, I used Blush as the main color!  And then used bubble wrap to create the fun texture with Plum!
I really like how it turned out, especially with the added Crinkle Ribbon, flowers and gems!!

The sparkle is beautiful!!

For the blue one I used Turquoise! My son's favorite color!

I wasn't sure how to decorate his, as I didn't want to make it too girly!

So I decided to add some Crinkle Ribbon along with a charm I created!

I cut out a tiny circle on my Cricut and then stamped the tiny "smile" sentiment, as I thought it would be perfect, since their artwork always makes me smile!!

I set the circle into the charm and then used our NEW product to finish it up!! ;)
So that's a sneak peek for you!!

Oh so exciting!!!

This is the first thing I created with it and I loved it!!  Took a little experimenting, but was so fun!!

And lastly a look at them displaying some of their little art work:

We sure hope you are excited about the new product being released, we think you will have a fun time using it and can't wait to see what all of you will do with it!! 

Our current challenge is Anything Goes, join in we'd love to see what you create!

Have a shimmery day!!
