As always our Altered week is sponsored by our friends at The Craft Barn who have a stunning range of alterables to tempt every altered artist.
Here is my design team piece.
My team mate Neil has been kind this week and allowed us to alter anything! Here is a mirror from a certain Swedish well know store transformed into a key holder.
A mixture of book page and old music manuscript has been stamped with the Magnolia house stamp this sort of represents our residents - 3 musicians a book lover and a crafter!
Some basic cup hooks and we each have a hook on which to hang our keys!
Here is the whole thing. First it was gessoed, then painted with blue emulsion. All the stamping has been done with archival ink - a little painting with distress inks here and there. The bottom panel was painted with brushed corderoy crackle paint by Ranger - it gives a great texture.
I actually began this at the July Claxby retreat inspired by something similar in Craft Stamper. I had none of the original materials used so improvised and I am really pleased with the results. this is for us for a change too. The colours are perfect for the dining room!
Hope you have time to stop by and see my team mates work too at
