Total Redo



These little ornaments, gift embellishments, whatever-you-want-to-use-them-for shadow rounds were what I came up with for the dollar store challenge for Somerset Life. These originally started out as royal blue sports themed party favor games. You know, the ones with the holes on the bottom and the bb's that you try to settle into them. The football, soccer and basketball backgrounds were used as a template for the new backgrounds placed in each one. Lots of gesso, paint, paper and 3D items and they're completely unrecognizable at this point. I kept the theme of having something that moves freely inside each one. I think my favorite is the baby themed one. One has a picture (repro) of my Grandpa. They were really fun to make and they end up being about $0.17 each. I know I've said it before but I really like the calls that Stampington puts out there. I've made a few things I'm really happy with that I likely wouldn't have thought of otherwise.

Have a great weekend!
