altered box file...


My take on Linda & Rosies challenge over at the Awfully Big Art Adventure

We were challenged to alter either an A5 or A4 box file.
I chose to do a A4... covered in paper mache which I was going to later stain and stamp when dry but when I got up the next morning it was something akin to a slice of bread which had been left out all night and the crusts all curled up...rofpmsl.

So here we have take number 2... an A5 box file... thanx to Chris...she came over to mine yesterday bringing it with her and saving the day.


This is exactlty how the other one should have turned out.... So I am H A P P Y.
The Images are those of Crafty Individuals....the postal stamps are from Tanda Stamps.
Once again you can wake up and smell the coffee!!
It's what I used to stain the box... I tried to palm what was left of the coffee onto Chris but she wouldn't play! LOL
Just want to say A big thanx to Chris for the great crafting session and photographs...she ended up staying over again as this time the petrol station was closed at 11pm.....so we continued on until 2am. Can't get rid of her. lol
Thanx for the challenge L&R x
P.S. mine is a gift for someone BUT I will be making myself another as it looks great on my hall table.
NOTICE, Willow is now having a weekly challenge over at her 'Fairy Dust Bag' blog and this is what she wrote...
Every Thursday I will be setting the challenge where I will submit a Willow Sketchie and card example...(remember..you can make whatever you like, using ANY products, the sketchie is there to give you ideas, follow it as you wish. At the end of every week I will be looking to put the most inspiring piece of work on-line in Willow Designs gallery and who will be asked to join me in the following challenge as a guest designer!
Why not pop over HERE and take a look.
Tomorrow Chris and I will post our take on the Altered CD challenge hope you have all managed to find yourselves an old one to give it ago.
Chriss xx
