Watch out kids - Mummy is altering things again!

Good morning! How is your weekend going? I had a lovely afternoon out yesterday colouring with some local crafty girls. It was loads of fun! If you're reading this ladies - Hi!! (waving madly!).

I would like to share another altered project with you today :) But before I do, I was hopping around checkinng out some blogs last night and I stumbled across THIS BLOG. OMG - this kid is amazing! Please - go and check him out. What an inspiration. His Mum must be over the moon :) Such an adorable crafting buddy!

I'm on a bit of an altering rampage right now. I just love getting the paint out and mixing up some new glimmer mist and getting stuck into a new project. My kids better watch out, lol, stand still too long and Mummy might find a way of painting you and sticking a Maggie to ya too!

My project today is actually for Magnolia Down Under Challenges.  This week the challenge is BINGO! Woo hoo! So much fun. I used the line that included lace, chipboard and paint...


So this started out as a 6 inch square canvas. I gave it a couple of coats of white Gesso and while it was wet I put two layers of cheese cloth over it making sure the creases stayed and when dry I sprayed some DIY glimmer mist on it in Vitcorian Velvet :)


The paper doily has been scrunched then inked wtih Old Paper DI (the ink pad straight onto the doily). The chippie leaves and butterfly are both from Make it Crafty and the wooden Dress form is by Kaisercraft.


Just about everything else is from my stash.


There is a little wooden cotton reel on the side here and a decorative pin as well. The beautiful Tilda is Tilda with Big Bow. She is just lovely sitting on the gorgeous Boutique Window.


This lovely shabby flower is by Prima and the shoe charm has been sitting in my stash for a while waiting for just the right project.

Do you like the scrabble tiles? lol, nope, I didnt raid the games cupboard! They are from ebay. This pic shows the glimmered cheesecloth a bit better. I didnt plan this, but the tag on the dress form looks like a price tag, haha. Pure luck!

So there is my project for this week. I hope you like it! It was just a little thought that turned into something for me to hang in my craft room. I just love creating little treasures for myself hehehe.

I hope you get a chance to come and join us at MDUC this week!

I would like to enter the challenges at
Just Us Girls - Use Fabric on your project (I've used cheesecloth, lace, crochet doilies)
