Dark Stories....

Hope you are all having a great sunday...I've been having a play with some digi images  this weekend.
My friend June over at Dezinaworld is just about to release her new digi kit named " Dark Stories"
I was very honoured when June sent me the new kit to have a play with...and here is the result...

The background image is one of my own photos...everything else is in the" Dark Skies" kit...
I absolutely love the images, although I admit I have tweaked  the colours a bit to suit my theme...
So do pop over to Dezinaworld and check out the new kit that is launching won't be disappointed.
I am entering this creation in to the challenge over at..... Dream in Darkness

Love Dosen't Live Here Anymore....

I'm posting this at Silly O'Clock because I fell asleep on the sofa and now I am too wide awake to go to
On the plus side I have been able to catch up on a few crafty projects...this digi creation being one of them.
This is for the challenge over at Dream in Darkness  and I am so pleased I have been able to find the time to return to their challenges.

I have used one of my own photos and some images that were free/in the public domain...I think this young girls face is beautiful...vintage images at their best with barely any make up.
Anyway I hope you like can find the challenge here at

Pretty Altered Keys

Wow, so where did January
The February Challenge has just launched over at Rhedds Creative Spirit and boy there are some fab projects from the design team....

My project was to altered a couple of keys...I have inherited a bag full of them from my father's house and they are just in the cupboard doing nothing...and as I've never altered keys before it was time to give them a go.

First I painted each key with Croco Crackling Colour, one key in the deep turquoise colour the other in a lovely pomegranate colour.
I left them to dry over night.

The next day I had noticed that there wasn't much crackling going on, probably because I didn't apply a thick enough coat, however there was some texture there so I rubbed some gilding wax in to each of the keys,

All the embellishing came from my stash, the bird, the rose and the filigree embellishment were all highlighted  with copper gilding wax.
So if you like an altered art challenge why not pop over to......

Love Heart

Yay...Altered Eclectic Challenges  are back after a nice break, that we teamies were so pleased to many thanks to our Boss Lady Elaine.
My project for this month...seeing as its the month for love, is a Love Heart.

I have several of these folky style hearts and I thought I would use one for my project.
I gessoed the heart, once dry I stamped some script over the heart.
I then splodged pale pink acrylic paint over the script, then immediately went over that with a baby wipe...I dried the paint with my heat tool, then applied cream acrylic and again wiped over it with a baby wipe.
I then gave it a very light spray with Raspberry Glimmermist.
I randomly added some texture with a stencil...leaving it all to dry over night.

To embellish I added the cupid and the heart die cut, I also gathered up some pretty lace and adhered that in place.
The bead spray and the rose were added with the rose  petals covered in Rock Candy for a frosting effect.
So are you up for an Altered Art Challenge...if so we would love to see you over at
