Altered Eclectics Monthly Challenge...."Anything goes"

Hi Everyone,
So sorry I've been AWOL... but I treated myself to some Annie Sloan paint.. so I have been soooooo busy after work painting...I am just finishing off a large chest of drawers ... two bedside tables...One very large wardrobe....yikes I will put up pics when the wax has dried.....

Well today is the start of the monthly Challenge which is always Anything Goes over at Altered eclectics..no cards or layouts we would love to see any creations that you alter...Canvas, box, jars, tins...Anything at all...we would just love to see all your fabulous altered creations.....




I decided to alter a wooden spoon.( told you you can alter anything to take part).I used the image from the Fabulous NICECRANE DESIGNS you can find them HERE Lots of lace was used in this one... I thought in this image she looked so elegant & I'm a lover of green...The items used were all from my stash..I Hope you like her......

Thank you so much for your visit today...Hugs May x x
