ALTERED ECLECTICS CHALLENGE

Hi Everyone,

I am so sorry this should have gone up on the 1st of the month....I am becoming stressed at work and the dates just fly out of the window....so sorry to my lovely teamies & sweet Elaine who owns Altered Eclectics... sorry!!!! But better late than never as they say...

As you know this challenge runs monthly and we would love to see anything that you alter...boxes, canvases, tags etc... no cards Please if you can alter it we would love to see it...Have Fun....

I altered a paper mache bird I hope you like him...He has been Fran-taged within a inch of his life (lol) I used the aged aqua Love this colour...mind you he has 6 layers of the stuff  but I was happy with the effect...He has two metal (black) brads for his eyes....



So looking forward to what you all will create this month... so pop over HERE and join in the fun

See you there x x x

I am so sorry you are stressed at work May. I do hope you sleep well at night.
Your bird is wonderful and it is so nice to see that you did not hurt him one bit with all the Frantage! In fact, you made him quite elegant so it must be a male!!

This is fabulous! I love the frantage all over it.

I have frantage (that colour even) and I never remember to use it!
I must set out a jar sd I lay out the pieces for my next project cuz I do love the look of it!!!

I am having blogger troubles so will read to catch up but can't leave extra comments like i used to. I have to go out of your blog and then back out to mine, shut it down and then open back up and go back to yours to leave a second comment. Drag.
I am waiting for an answer from them as it has been like this for about 3 weeks!
I will look back through though!
