Door plus poster = great art!

I am so impressed with myself!  I not only finished several projects that had been waiting patienty for me, I finally got some pictures on to the computer so that I can show them off.  I have had all these ideas knocking around in my head so it is nice to clear some of them out.  Trust me, I can use the room.  :)  So, without further ado, here they are.
This is a long cabinet door I got at Ikea in the seconds section. There was nothing wrong with it but it was all alone and without any of the hardware.  I found it years ago but I saved it knowing I would find a way to use it.  The poster I got at Michaels a while back and I love the shabby chic feel of it.  I have been seeing all these modge podge projects in blogland and some thing clicked.  I am planning on having my husband 'help me' put it up over the bed.

This is another modge podge attempt.  The plaque I bought at our local ReStore for 25 cents and the picture I printed out from the computer.  The plaque was originally a plain basic pine so I painted it and applied the picture.  This is going in the kitchen of course.

I decided to save a cardboard tea canister thinking I would get creative with it and this is what I came up with.  I wrapped it in wallpaper, then glued on a ribbon and topped that with a flower I cut out of another wallpaper scrap.  The top which isn't in the picture I just painted cream. 

I also cut tags out of various wallpaper bits.  I can tell you I will never run out of tags now!

Last but not least I painted some dollar store jewlery pendants an antique cream and used them to frame some miniature flower pictures.  These too have a shabby chic feel to them which I relly like. I made a few different sets.

Thanks for checking out my latest creations everyone.
