June challenge over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit *

For this months challenge over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit I altered an old dressform which had been knocking about in my craftroom for an absolute age.  I painted it the bustier/bodice white and the top black and covered the bodice it all using glamour dust.  I added pearl trim to accentuate the bodice.  I used a wired pearl spray as the necklace.  For the skirt I used the entire contents of my feather stash, white, grey and black and attached to ribbon and wrapped around the waist. I used pearl trimmed lace over the waist area. To make the skirt area fan out and stay put I used netting underneath.

That's it for now folks - now for the pics.

Bye for now and thanks for dropping in.  i hope we see you over at Rhedd's for this months challenge

June challenge over Eclectic Ellapu *

Hello everyone

For this month's challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu is

A Touch of Pink and/or Purple

I decided to alter one of my wicker hearts.  I painted the entire thing in purple paint and when dry I dry bushed white over the top to break down the colour. I cut out the middle and placed a nest which I had sprayed with dylusions pink.  I placed a pink bird into the nest (this was gifted to me by Sandra Wright) I then attched a ribbon to hang it by and added a bow,  I placed some flowers randomly and a couple of metal leaves also sprayed with dylusions.

That's it all done!

Thanks for popping in and hope to see you real soon xx

Altered camvas and frame for Junes Challenge over at Altered Eclectics *

June........... oh my word half way through the year. Here we are again for the new challenge over at Altered Eclectics and as always it is Anything goes as long as it is Altered/mixed media - no cards, atc's etc.

I decided to use a commissioned piece. A work colleague asked to use a picture of her mum and dad's vintage wedding picture and provided a really cheap gold frame to work with. She wanted a natural colour as the background but had provided a black and white photo. I already had in mind a 3d piece as always. I thought it would look odd just using the frame so I used a canvas as a box frame.

I stenciled a heart inside the underside of the canvas and painted using pink and purple blended from dark to light.  I used inka gold over the heart (cant really see it in the photos.

I used cane from my garden and paint it grey with crackle medium and over painted with white - again not really clear in the pics however I used the same effect on the actual frame. I used some old silk flowers and leaves and sprayed them using a pale pink spray.  I added some pearl spray amongst the flowers and leaves.  A while ago I bought the word Memories and gave it the same crackle treatment and edged the inside of the canvas using some white lace to finish it off. I varnished all the wood pieces and frame.  I painted the outside of the canvas grey and used the back of the original frame on the back.  Voila all done.....

Now for the pics


Now why don't you all pop on over to the new challenge over at Altered Eclectics and join in with us to inspire us.
