Springtime Tea in Paris Triptych Fun

Hi everyone, Just popping in to show you a little fun I had and to offer you one of my free dimensional Triptych templates!! I created this fun springtime triptych using my own triptych pattern and G45's Secret Garden papers!!

 I also used a collage image from AlteredPages collage sheet "Victorian Tea"
. Triptychs are so fun and really quite easy to create.

 I used my template and cut the triptych pieces out of old cereal boxes and the cardboard that comes in those paper packs!! I LOVE recycling!!! I then used some  Gold UTEE which you can find over at Retro CafĂ© and embossed the pieces.

 I also rubbed a little Patina Gilders paste on the pieces to give them a little aged metal appearance. Next I  altered an image of the Victorian Tea collage sheet on my computer and then fussy cut it to use along with some pieces of G45 Secret Garden. Then putting everything together and adding eyelets and ribbon for hinges, a little bling and there you have it!! Oh, I also covered the back of my triptych pieces with a beautiful napkin  sent  to me by one of my super art sisters. It worked perfect for my Springtime Tea in Paris theme.

 I hope their new owners enjoy them!! Well, that's it for today. If you would like a copy of my triptych template drop me a comment with your email addy and I will email a pattern out to you!! The only thing I ask is that you send me a picture of your completed triptych so I may feature it here on my blog!!

Tah Tah for now all and please remember I love and appreciate your comments!!
