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.
