Altered Object Swap

I realised I had not yet blogged this little item made for a swap on Zuzu's Forum. The challenge was to alter "something" so this started life as a child's wooden pencil case. And yes those flappers I am so find of are making an appearance again! In these pics the top and base look different coours but they werent't bothere a mix of H2Os and various Stewart Gill paint.,

Five Crowns

I realise I haven't blogged in an age. I have been a bit busy so not done any challenges but have been doing swaps. These are five pieces I did on Crowns for a swap on the Altered Gypsy Forum.

The first is a little booklet I have used tissue transfer for the flowers and collage.

The second is collage over stamping covered by acetate which has been treated with alcohol inks and blending solution

The third is gesso and distress ink background with a Heidi Swapp mask and collage. I liked this background so much I scanned it and have used it printed on a couple of bithday cards too.

The fourth is a wooden domino

The fifth is an altered oversized playing card.

All great fun to make and my first swap on this forum.
