Try it on Tuesday - Present your Presents!

That amazing team at TioT have been at it again, this week with another alter it challenge. This time we can alter anything but it must be a present for someone. Now that's a bit tricky cos the person who will receive this will be  reading my blog so I'll have to be careful not to let the cat out of the bag!


The hangy gate thing was (dare I tell you?) a poundland special with a twee little flower on it and all I've done is remove the original flower and replaced it with a far more classy variety, in the shape of the papermania build a flower carnations.  The blue tit is of course a Joanna Sheen one which I have put together using shaped decoupage to give it a rounded decoupaged effect. It looks more realistic than ordinary decoupage don't you think? All have been watercoloured using TH Distress inks - must try harder is all I can say about that but I'm reasonably satisfied!

Do come and join us with this challenge, it's great when a few of you pluck up the courage to alter something. Makes what we do worthwhile, and of course a little tempter this week is the £15 prize from our alter it week sponsor


Have fun Y'all
x Michelle

Well, if my watercolouring were half as good I would be highly delighted. This is really pretty Michelle and my Mum would love it because of the lovely bluetit.

We recently had a second and much bigger Poundland store open here and I love to have a good ferret round to see what I can pick up, especially their photo frames.
