My thank you gift

to the gals who have signed up for my altered bottle class at the Hilltop Memories crop. We'll draw numbers and pick. Everyone gets one finished and one raw clothes pin. Hope you all like these. The idea of painting them pretty colors came from one of my favorite magazines, Somerset Life! I've added rub ons and gems and (don't tell)kept a few raw ones for myself for another idea I have brewing. Thanks.

Altered dress form

I did one of these metal dress forms about 3 years ago and have collected four in all of various sizes and shapes. I have decided to do the four seasons out of these for a rotating display in my work room. This is Spring. I think she needs a hat with netting and a tiny bird, what about you?

Finished the danglies for the swap

Poor poor altered art blog...it has become riddles with cob webs from lack of use! I've been madly scrap booking and need to devote a bit more time to this blog too!

These are my danglies for the swap with some of the By Hand artists from Quetfire. These are some of the the most talented women in the altered arts/stamping field and I just hope these are up to their standards. I had such fun creating a variety of danglies for the swap.

Am working more and more on my Through My Garden Gate album and will post an update ASAP. I am teaching two classes at Hilltop Memories Birthday crop in a couple of weeks and one is my altered bottles class. I could only find bottles for 7 and each gets 3 different sized bottles, two sets of rub ons, a topper or two and use of the Lumiere paints to colorize the rub-ons. Such fun! The other class is the Cup Cake book and it has been a delight to design. Still have a few opening for that class!

Off to play!
