New Challenge over at Altered Eclectics *

Well here we are again folks another month gone and in May already.  For this months challenge over at Altered Eclectics the theme is Anything Goes  as long as it is mixed media/altered. 

I have used an old red tray purchased from a charity shop and a smallish coffee jar.  Sorry no pics of the before - I am useless at doing this so on the ''norty'' step for me lol. 

I painted it using a beige paint, used crackle medium and once dry I used cream chalk paint for the magic to happen - I just love this technique so much.  I then decoupaged napkins to both pieces and then sealed with a 2 step crackle varnish.  I then attached the pot to the tray - voila all done and dusted and ready to place on my desk at work. 

Now for the pics

Now why not head on over to Altered Eclectics and join in with this months challenge.  I do hope we see you there sharing your talent with us.

Hugs always
