Altered Decor

It's been a bit since I've had something to upload. This is for last Friday's Challenge over at Embellish-It Scrapbooking. I'm running late....but thought I'd share the project I made.
The letter is paper mache. I covered it with papers from BasicGrey's Boxer collection, Sandylion and The Paper Patch. I faux stitched each piece and then sanded the edges...looks just like well-loved jeans!

I was looking for a 3d embellishment that was not a flower for my son's initial....and came up with these 5 pointed stars. Check out the directions here.

The rub-ons are from BasicGrey, Makine Memories and others. The bottle cap alphabet was a gift from a secret sister. I'm not sure of the source of the star and screw brads. The chipboard stickers are from BasicGrey's Boxer Collection.

Thanks for stopping by....and feel free to join our challenge...I'd love to see what you make!!

How Wonderful! I personally love denim, I would live in it every day and every where if I could :) This is just a fantastic way to make an initial for a boy! The stars are just the right touch.

Oh how fabulous! I love the denim paper. It really looks great as the base for the rest of the embellishments. I especially love those little bottlecap letters!
