Altered Beer Mats

I've just been going through my photo album of all my craft makes and came across the 2 Altered Beer Mats that I made for a swap in the UK&Ireland Craft Swap Group on facebook.



The swap started mid September and after a week or so we were all given our swap partners...by the end of September I had already finished mine so posted them out,so until my swap partner received them I couldn't post them here.Of course she did receive them,but me being me, completely forgot to post them to my blog. That challenge ended on the 15th Oct.
My first beer mat is made up using bits and pieces around a lovely vintage image I printed out. The image was then sealed with modge podge and then the whole piece was gessoed twice,dried and then coloured using glimmer mist sprays.
The second beer mat was made using the very distinctive Graphic45 Papers...this one is The French Country Garden...to be honest I just love these papers and images and I have put away a couple of the pages and images that I will never use, will just look at them from time to time,lol.

Both equally gorgeous in their own way, love the colours in the top one and love the papers on the bottom one. Gorgeous.
