Alter It

Alter It
is the new challenge at FSC this fortnight.

You can alter anything you like, whether it be something
old or something chipboard that has been done up,
or something from around the house…
the choice is yours!


My object is a shadow box with a glass front.
It is totally inspired from Brenda at 
Butterflies and Bumblebees and a secret santa gift that I received from her this year.


My mum has been looking at Brenda’s shadow box creation on my wall
for some time and asked if I could make her one for Mother’s Day.
In this pic I have take the glass off to photgraph it so that
I could capture the colour better.
I wanted something ultra feminine for mum
I think it captures a scene from the past quite nicely.


This is just a closer pic to show the detail of the framing of the stamp.
It is layered onto a piece of torn and inked vellum.
Please pop on over to FSC and check out the awesomeness of the stampettes and leave a little love.
They are some of the most creative people I know.

Flonz has a generous $20 voucher for the winner
along with the stampettes top pics, Saturday spotlights, inspirational pieces
and the occasional guest designer who plays along with us. FSC is a busy place to be!
