December challenge over at Altered Eclectics

For this months challenge I altered a wooden heart bought from a pound shop.  I gained the inspiration from a fellow crafter, Sandra the owner of  Rhedd's Creative Spirit. 

I used reindeer and letter die cuts, twigs from my garden, small cones from an old decoration and glitter.

New challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu

Hello everyone

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

Much love

November challenge for Altered Eclectics

Hello everyone

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.

May challenge over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit

Hello everyone

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.

Now for the pics

New challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu

Hello everyone

It is time for a new challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu and the theme is Anything Goes - nice and easy for all. 

For this challenge I decided to alter 2 coffee jars - ultimately made as a leaving present for a colleague at work.  (She loved them by the way)

After preparation I used a blue/green chalk paint and wiped over with antiquing cream.  I then wrapped lace round the middle, around the lids and added a flower.

Now for the pics

Over spill from the festive season

Hi all

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.

Now for the pics
