Doris here with another altered project to share this week. 😀 Here’s the back story. My desktop has been acting up for quite a while and seriously needs to be replaced. It’s very old, slow, keeps freezing for long periods at a time, shutting down on its own, etc. I’ve been putting up with it and just trying to limp by until we can afford to replace it (hopefully this summer).
Then, the other day, my AMAZING bestie sent me the most INCREDIBLE surprise! She sent me a metallic purple notebook pc! See my facebook page if you REALLY must know which one specifically. lol It arrived wrapped in a white dust cover, which I decided to hold onto. I figure I can put it in there when not in use. Since I’m hanging onto it and though I love the look of altered laptops, I just can’t make myself alter this precious gift I received, I decided to alter the dust cover instead. 😀 Here’s how it turned out:
Close up of the dress forms. I altered them using Silks paints using our favorite colors and painting the opposite dressform’s supporting stem the other person’s favorite color to symbolize how we support one another. The paints are actually very shimmer and have gorgeous shine to them, but due to the time of day I took the pictures, you can’t really see the metallic shimmer:

TFL! These are the GORGEOUS CE chippies I used for my project. They’re linked to the store listings:
