Altered Eclectics monthly Challenge..."Anything Goes"

Hi Everyone,
I hope this finds you all well, and enjoying the Bank Holiday weekend x x x
Our monthly challenge over at ALTERED ECLECTICS is.. as always Anything Goes...If it can be Altered we would love to see it...No Cards Please!! I altered a little paper mache Heart this month.. I hope you like it..
I covered the heart base in some tissue music paper then applied a little Gesso..the lace doily I soaked in some  black coffee for a couple of hours, then I used under the image a small crochet circle... the little image is a scrap...Remember these as Children (if you are as old as me you will) I loved my angel scraps as a child I had a book full of these mostly angels...Do you remember...or did I have a strange childhood (lol)... Have a super day all...Looking forward to seeing all your fabulous altered items...



Thank you so much for your visit x x x x

Fabulous altering May, love the fact that you used coffee for staining, I've used tea sometimes. I also had books with Angels scraps when I was little.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Warm hugs

I love your altered heart, the coffee stained doily is beautiful, as is that angel scrap - just gorgeous. We did not have these scraps in Canada but I do remember scraps for dressing up my paper dolls but I think that might be before your time!! Hugs, Anne xx
