TRY IT ON TUESDAY

This week at Try it on Tuesday is altered week.... and great news...it can be anything! You can alter whatever takes your fancy.... a book, a bean can.... an old jewelry box. I sanded this lewelry box down then painted it orange.... distressed the heck out of it.... then covered the flat panels with Hallowe'en paper, (that i aged and ink distressed) from my stash.

I used a Skull image from SMEARED INK .... printed it out 6 times and fussy cut it into a kind of 3 dimentional image.... and stuck it onto the back of the pull down drawer.

The bits on top come off and its still a jewelry box.....or a Hallowe'en candy box..... but i liked the idea of making it into a wizards desk.... i need to make more 'stuff'.... books and bits 'n' bobs......



The skull came out pretty well i thought.... all the fussy cutting was well worth the effort.

I hope you can find time to alter something this week...we'd love to see it. I shall enter this into the following challenges.....
