A little break...

It's that time again to have another challenge over at Eclectic Ellapus. This will be the last challenge for this year as our boss lady is insisting we all take a break from our hard slog,lol.

       For this challenge I altered a hard backed canvas.....


in to this, a sewing themed altered canvas with a pocket.


I was inspired recently by a swap I was involved in, I had so much fun making 2 stitching pockets,that I thought I'd take some elements of my design and see how they would look in a canvas. Even though I say it myself it looks pretty cool. The buttons tabs were rubber stamped and I stitched the buttons on...the threads were from my late mother's sewing tin, the tape is some twill that I aged. The lace is very vintage....the sign is a die cut with a stamped image in behind it. The flower,which matched this perfectly was given to me in a craft swap.
If you fancy entering an altered art challenge,you will find it here...
