Fall Brick Shelf Sitter

This is my project for the I-Team at Creative Critterz Imaginations this week. Be sure to check their blog everyday to see some cute things made with the Imagine! Click on my I-Team Blinkie at the top right.

I love to recycle & alter things & I have been staring at this stack of bricks in our garage since we moved here 7½ years ago. So I finally am doing something with them! I also love Fall, so I decided to make a fall shelf sitter.

Just a plain ole brick from our house.

I used the Imagine More Art Cartridge.

The fun new thing that I tried on my Imagine was printing on ribbon. I used the border on pg. 25 & put it in layers & just used the last piece. I used satin ribbon & just layed it on the mat to match the placement on the screen, it did get a tiny bit on my mat but nothing a baby wipe didn't take care of.

Then I used just the flowers from the top of page 18 & the bottom of page 19 (I cut the leaves off). I changed the color to something fallish, I then cut 2 of each, one at 3½" & one at 2½". I then crumpled & inked them, I used Tim Holtz Distress inks-Rusty Hinge & Spiced Marmalade. I added buttons & put them on twigs & added my ribbon. I covered the front of the brick with my matching border on page 25. I put some of my daughters clay in the holes to hold my twigs. (shhh don't tell her, lol) & here it is. Thanks for looking!
