Altered Box - Rhedds Creative Spirit

For this months challenge I altered an old wooden box for a colleague.  She wanted it to have a vintagy feel to it and is giving it to a friend as a wedding present - memory box

I painted it in several layers of paint and in between sanding it all back for the really distressed look.  I used napkins for the top and loads of modpodge and sanding it in between layers until completely smooth.  I deliberately sanded some of the napkin pics away to make it look aged

Thats it for now but why not head on over to Rhedds Creative Spirit and join in with this months challenge.  Go on you know you want to LOL

New challenges over at Eclectic Ellapu

March already and time for new challenges over at Eclectic Ellapu.  For this month the PINK team theme is ''Thinking of you'' and the PURPLE team are hosting ''Floral and Fauna''.  The DT have been decreasing in numbers so my card originally for the Pink team has now been used for the Purple theme.   I will be running a DT call for both Altered Eclectics and Eclectic Ellapu very soon when I find the time to do so.  So if you are interested in becoming an Eclectic girly watch out for the DT calls on the blogs.

I made a Mothers day card for my stepmother using some beautiful poppy paper I had kicking about in the draw.  I printed the sentiment out on card and used some cream ribbon for the finishing touches.  Quite a simple card really but I like it.
Thanks for dropping in and please call again real soon.

Living room canvas

I have been at a loss as to what to make for this months challenge over at Altered Eclectics.  My mojo got up, packed its bags and left me for goodness knows how long.  I kid you not.  

 I managed to put this together a few weeks ago for my living room.  I used an 12 x 24 inch canvas.  I used modelling paste through 3 stencils, brickwork, stripes and sun ray type thingy,  for the background.  I painted over it several times using several colours until I achieved the lightish green.  I used inka gold over the textues.  I had bought some cheap dried arrangements from the local pound shop which I pulled apart, cut up and glued to the canvas.  All done and now for the pics

Thanks for dropping in and why not pop on over to Altered Eclectics and join in with the fun - we would love to see you there.
