Hi there everyone,
My all time favorite way to be creative is by altering items...So I am here to share my latest altered project

I love music and I love guitars but I can not play. So having a guitar sitting in the cupboard seemed pointless, This inspired me to do something with it and create an altered project to show my love of both music and scrapping. Mind you I did have to fight my baby bro for it but of course I won.... or maybe he just loves me.

I have used Prima's Lyric collection which I thought was very fitting  for this project.
(Tip: When creating an altered project of this size it is best to choose papers that have a continuous pattern for ease in making seamless joins between them.)
There are lots of beautiful Prima flowers and trinkets on this guitar along with Maya Road burlap pennants, seam binding ribbon, Out There Chippy and TSC trinkets 

I hope this inspires you to find an item that's just a little bit different and alter it
Happy Scrappin
