First time in ages...............12

I am blogging a project I have just made and it is not a DT piece.  I used a coffee jar, bottle and a home decor piece.  I painted them all black and added black leaves. white - ish colour silk flowers bought from a pound shop deconstructed and reconstructed, pearl spay, pearl lace and calico.  A simple project and I have to say I really do love them myself - makes a change!  

Now for the pics.

March Challenge over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit 10

So here we are again - challenge time over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit and for this month I altered an olive jar and I had gold in my mind lol and more gold and more gold.  I treated myself to some spray paints and a clear lacquer and this is the end result.  The metal pieces were from my overloaded stash lol.














Please head on over to Rhedd's and join in with our fun challenge and don't forget to give the DT ladies some love

March challenge over at Eclectic ellapu 9

For the challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu the theme is Spring colours or Easter.  

It has been a long, long time since making a card and I thought what the heck lol. 

 I used this gorgeous image from Delicious Doodles.  I coloured it using my prisma pencils and promarkers and then covered it in Rock Candy as you will see in the close up pic.  I embossed the white background and used ribbon from my stash.  The sentiment I had lurking about in the corner of my stamp drawer so that was handy! Quite a quick and simple card - just what the doctor ordered lol. 

So here are the pics.....




That's it for today - don't forget to head on over and join in with this months challenge

February challenge over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit *

Hello everyone
It is challenge time over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit and for my project this month is an altered perfume bottle.  Firstly apologies for the quality of the before photo - worse than I thought but I think you can make out what it was like.

I believe it is an Yves San Laurent bottle
Anyway I used Silkies type paint which you mix powder with binding pase and dabbed various rich colours until I achieved the effect I wanted.   
Now for the pics





I used various metal filigree embellishments some of which I trimmed, small corners for the lid.
 I used pale pink inka gold over the metal to make it pop and I love the look. 
To finish off lots of red gems  I used glossy accents to stick everything to the bottle which also secured the lid. 


Thank you for dropping by and whyt not head on over to Rhedd's Creative Spirit to join in with the fun challenge this month which is always anything goes as long as it is altered or mixed media -NO CARDS OR PAPERCRAFT PLEASE

New Year, first challenge for Altered Eclectics *

Doesn't the festive season fly by - blink and you miss the break.  Back to DT creative juices that need to flow each month and I have to say the DT girlies over at Eclectic Ellapu and Altered Eclectics have outstanding abilities of creating beautiful art.  

For this month I have altered a straw hat for a friend.  If you remember the purple Xmas tree hanger - well she has taken it down now the festivities have ended. there is a blank space on her wall so for her birthday I put this together to fill that space lol. 

I painted the hat purple and then brushed over with white - enough to let the purple show through.  I used 2 different colour purple ribbons and some lace appliques.  I have so much stash I have made myself a promise to start using it up lol.  I think we all say the same and yet there never seems to be a spare gap lol.

Now for the pics



thank you for popping over and hope to see you all again.  Why not head on over to my challenge blogs and join in with the fum.

Feb challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu *

For this challenge I altered a coffee jar into a wedding present.  My cousin is getting married this year so an ideal opportunity to get a little romantic lol.  I painted the jar white, decoupaged a napking on the front and used appliques from a donated wedding dress by a work colleague.   Lucky gal I am lol. I finished off with a white tassel and pearl flower centre.

Now for the pics
