Alter it with Try it on Tuesday

Hi you lovely Peeps

Well the sun is shining and I'm ready to go and sow a few more carrots etc in my garden but before I do I'd better show you whats on the menu over at Try it on Tuesday ( Think it's tuesday today but I'm never too sure)

It's alter it week this week and the DT have been busy altering boxes and what a variety there is too!

The weather forcast is not supposed to be brilliant for the rest of the week after the glorious sunshine we have had so maybe altering a box is just the pick me up you need.

Here's mine


I started this off as a demo at one of Lovin Inks workshops a few weeks ago but hadn't decorated it so thought I'd fiinish it for the TioT challenge.

It's gesso'd, painted with emulsion, tissued with stamped tissue and old pattern pieces, stamped with TH stamps then decorated with a TH die cuts and a few shrink plastic buttons.  Reall I just kept messing till I liked the way it looked!

The Craft Barn are offering a £15 prize this week too so do find time to have a play, it's soooo good for the soul!

We've been playing over at The Craft Barn too, in anticipation of a visit from Di of Tando Creative. 

Tando products will be featured all week as Product of the Week and there are some amazing samples and tutorials from the DT. Do hop over and say hi.

Here's a little peek at todays tutorial



It makes a smashing little ............................  well you'll just have to go see for yourself!
Have fun this week and enjoy the sunshine
x Michelle
