to fasten, attach, or secure something with a pin
I have been working this 'succulent' color palette into some elements on my back porch. It comes from Design Seeds, and when pinning or blogging, always, always try and give credit to whence it came from!
For my project I also got an excellent idea from this pin, no source given :( What I liked from this picture was the title they added to the binding.
So from those, came this, which I am going to use on my back porch, under a potted plant. I love my porch and it is definitely my "happy place", so hence the title. I sealed it up, gesso'd and painted it like Elizabeth taught us to do over at Altered Book Lover, and in simplistic terms, it is an AB.
( and yes, my book is more purple...oh well, might try and tone it down later to a more muted tone )

Then I have been wanting to make this from Make it and Love it, and if you want to make one then hop on over to that site and it has a tutorial:
This is my version, I used a basket weave paper ( not because it's Easter ) but because I have a rooster/chicken theme kitchen and that's where I hang my charger up. See...right under that rooster night light!
Really Reasonable Ribbon - twill
Maya Road - flower
Helmar 450 adhesive
paper from stash
Now I am going to make another one cause this one is a little too small! It works but it take some maneuvering to get it all in there, but I LOVE the no cords!!
Then the last project isn't 'pinned' inspired. It kinda comes from doing the AB, and I have all these pages from the book sitting around so I thought I would mod podge this little cutie and sit him out in my "flower garden". He originally was a Christmas ornament that I was going to get rid of but I think she now has a new life on my porch.
This is the planter it sits in, and those pansies are left over from last year!! man, they are blooming like crazy!! Usually I don't get 2 seasons from annuals but that shows you how mild a winter we had!
So if you pin, and made something from it, I would LOVE to see what you've done! Please share a link to your project so everyone can visit too!
I hope y'all are having a great week end and happy pinning! :)
