For this months challenge I have used dismantled necklaces and tried my hand at beading. OMG you will never know how many times I had to restart these projects. Too many to count lol. I will pursue this hobby though as I am determined to get it right and also it is relaxing although frustrating at the same time lol.
As you can see I made a bauble sleeve and a bracelet. The bracelet was initially meant for an adult but I cut my losses and kept it small in case I made another mistake. My granddaughter is now the proud owner (she is only six so very easy to please lol.
It is time for the first challenge over at Altered Eclectics. For this challenge I have altered a compact mirror. In fact you will all get fed up with seeing them as I have got slightly addicted to them at the moment.
For this project I used diamante chain, Triple thick, German glass glitter and a brooch for the centre piece.
Now for the pic, yes just one - not overloaded this time lol
Its time for our November challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu and the theme is Thanksgiving. For this challenge I made a card using one of Tim Holtz stamps. I coloured my birdie using my pencils and found some festive paper in the bottom of my paper draw.
I do hope you will join in over at our challenge this month - hope to see you there
Firstly apologies for my long long absence from creating anything. I have had alot of personal stuff going on this year (still have!!!) and my mojo completely disappeared, in fact I hadn't even stepped into my craft room. I forced myself in there for the November challenge over at Altered Eclectics and came up with these, an altered jug and bottle/vase. Typical of me though - I forgot to take pics of the before lol.
I painted these white, used napkins from my stash and then used sandpaper on the edges to give them the vintage look. Finally I gave them a coat of varnish.
I do hope you like them - now for the pics and sorry for the overload.
Thank you for dropping by and why not head on over to Altered Eclectics and join in with this months challenge
For this months challenge I have posted a fairy in a jar. I used an old coffee jar, place dried moss at the bottom. used twigs from a tree from my garden, attached a photo of a fairy to the twigs. For the back I used a napkin, framed it using lace and made a handmade flower for the top.
Hope you like it and that you will come and join us over at Altered Eclectics this month

It is time for a new challenge over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit and the theme is always Anything Goes as along as it is mixed media/altered art.
For this months challenge I altered an old bottle I had kicking about. I covered the entire bottle with scrunched up tissue paper. Once dry I painted it black and dried it off again. I then wiped inka gold over the creases and then used various metal embellishments from my stash which I spray painted gold before attaching to the bottle.
That's it for this month - a really simple project.

I made these for the festive season and have posted a few beforehand but decided to use these ones for my February project over at Altered Eclectics first challenge of 2018.
I made these out of a cereal packet for the centre with glitter card for back and front. I simply added bails, ribbon and beads for the dangley bit lol.
For the centre I used old jewelry and diamante, pearls etc. I will be making more festive ornaments ready for this years Christmas craft show. I have never done on before so rather excited - already! Only 11 months to go lol.
