Altered Tin

Over on Try It On Tuesday the challenge this week is to alter a tin. Mine is a small 3" x 3" tin that has been covered with scraps of paper then painted over and has a couple of little clock faces, one with some Tim Holtz grungeboard wings. The inside is also decorated with parts of a watch set in some utee. There's also the chance to win a voucher from this weeks sponsors The Craft Barn, so why not go on over and have a go yourself.

Who Lives in a House Like This?

LisaSparkle over on Docrafts is hosting a "House" ATC swap, I was a bit late getting mine done, but here they are. I used some pieces of mount board that I scrounged from my local picture framer and covered them with brightly coloured acrylics, some scraps of paper and a mini playing cad (from a Christmas cracker). It's surprising what you can make from a few scraps of card and!

Gesso Flowers

Well, where did April go? It seems like a week ago when I last posted on here but it's actually nearly a month ago. I've only managed to get a bit of crafting done since the end of March and one thing I wanted to try was Gesso flowers. I made them using some pages from an old dictionary and put them in a little china bucket that I got some chocolates in. Chocolates are long gone but I thought the little bucket was too cute to hide away in a cupboard so I thought the little flowers were perfect to go in it.
