Altered Globes…love!

By  | 

Altered globes are a big hit in blog world! They are everywhere…they are in all forms. There are chalk globes, shiny globes, painted globes…you name it! So…I went in on this craze. With my vintage buttons and lace altered globe.

So, when I saw the host of globe projects hitting the diy/craft world I decided to go against the flow and make one of my own. Are you confused? Go against the flow? Why yes! You see…when I see something everyone else is doing I purposely DON’T do it. I’m obnoxious that way. But not this time. No siree. This time I joined in with gusto!! See why…

    Thats Cool! Are the buttons in the shapes of the landforms and the lace the sea? Either Way it is pretty amazing!
