ALTERED ECLECTICS NEW CHALLENGE........

Hi Everyone,

Today is the start of a Brand new Challenge, ALTERED ECLECTICS...Exciting!! This a New Monthly Challenge the 1st of every month....The Theme will always be Anything Goes...We would love you all to Alter something...canvas, tins, pegs, boxes the list is Endless... No Cards, ATC's, Layouts...But anything else that can be Altered...This idea has come from the lovely Elaine (owner) as she does the most AmAzing Altered art and felt out here in blogland there were not that many challenges for just altered pieces... So Please pop over and join in the fun..Remember it's a monthly Challenge so lots of time to create your Gorgeous project...See you There!!!




I used a small tin to alter... I used the Fabulous Secret Garden papers from Graphic 45...I also made two small envelopes in matching papers to hold small seed packets for the garden....The top of the tin I used lace & small crochet flowers, the lace & flowers are from my stash...I hope you like it!!!
Thank you so much for your kind visit today...
Hugs May x x x

What a stunning box May, the pearls complement the beautiful DP perfectly. I treated myself to this paper pad the other day but avoided cutting into it so far.

Beautiful as always May. I don't think I have ever not liked any of your projects. And what a great idea this is. I'll be watching my flowers for seeds to pass on and hopefully be able make something like this. If not, the envelope is pretty nice too.
