New challenge at Try it on Tuesday is up.....

This week is altered week over at Try it on Tuesday which is as always is being sponsored by our good friends over at The Craft Barn who are giving the winner a £15.00 Voucher.

Remember in order to be eligible for the prize draw you must put a link to the Craft barn in your post.

Now on to this weeks theme and it is "Anything Goes" We want to see all your altered projects. It can be anything as long as it is altered. So Be creative and have a play. This week I decided to alter a notebook into a play journal. I am going to use it to play with all the different techniques I see. it will be a work in progress that will become a technique journal.

This is what i started with. Just a plain notebook.
And here is another shot of it opened.
I used various Distress inks, Dylusions Mica Spray, Patterned paper scrap, Black Twill, Stampotique Stamp " The Crafter", Tim Holtz stamps and a misc key charm(Art from the heart)
Now head on over to the Try it on Tuesday blog to see what my team mates have created for you . They have made some pretty inspirational pieces there to help get you started. Then it is your turn to add your link.

Now on another subject here are 2 pics I snapped today. It seems that after the hurricane we now have a ton of butterflies and dragonflies around. This one was eating one of the yucky peaches that fell from the tree during the storm,. I loved the beautiful blue on the inside and the brown pattern underneath.
And here is the dragonfly sunning his wings on my washing line. (Yes one of the first things I did when we moved back here was to set up a wash line.) The dragonflies seem to love the washing line. They sit there even as I am hanging the wash.
Well that's about it for today. Can't wait to see some fab Altered Art pieces over at TIOT.
Hope you enjoyed your visit and have a wonderful day. Angela
