Hi Everyone,
It's the 1st of Oct and that means a new Challenge over at ALTERED ECLECTICS our challenge is always Anything Goes...No Cards please...As we would love to see your Altered creations....books, boxes, canvas, anything you can alter we would love to see it.... so pop on over and join in the fun & have a little peek at the fabulous teams blogs & projects.....See you there....
I decided to make some flowers & to alter a small crate to hold them in.... I hope you like it.....

Just some Gesso added to the  Black wire frame & some lace from my stash & blink of course

 The flower I stamped the newsprint stamp from SU on old pages from the phone book...distressed these with frayed burlap ink, I punched the petals out using a SU punch...added these buttons to the centres
strips of the left over paper added to the glass bottles..Simples...I hope you like it....
Thank you so much for your visit today....

Hello May,
Just wanted to say "Hi and I'm glad to be back". I've just been looking at your fabulous craft and thinking I'd take the inspiration and use the crocheted lace and broach idea to make an album of my late Mum.
Will be disappearing again to Goa for about 10 days starting tomorrow.
Take care.
Hugs
Lena
