ALTERED ART

Phew, well i really didn't mean to be this long away from my blog, but the pressure of the upcoming exhibition finally got to me.

I have at least 7 projects on the go, and not one of them entirely finished. Waiting for embellishments to arrive etc, has put me all behind, but when they all eventually turn up, it won't take me long to finish them (fingers crossed).

Here is a sneak preview of one of the projects.

It's an altered photo frame, with 8 compartments in all. I have removed the glass, and am making a stand for it using 4 childrens building blocks.

So far this is my favourite compartment. The china dolly i bought on ebay over a year ago, and have been dying to use her, i just hope she likes her new home.

my bottles of alcohol inks arrived this morning, so am off to have a play with them. I'm making Angels out of kitchen utensils, and wanted the inks desperately to alter them with.

So hopefully it won't be toooooo long before i'm posting again.

PS i STILL havn't done any more paintings, naughty naughty girl. LOL
