DAY 25 and TRY IT ON TUESDAY.

Welcome to day 25.... and TRY IT ON TUEDAY..... where our new challenge is to ALTER SOMETHING and USE FABRIC..... so you could alter a bag or t-shirt or use fabric when you alter something.... as i have.
I have been wanting to do this shadow box all month and finally got around to it...... ....... many of the pieces i had made early..... the dragon tile in the centre.... two faux porcelain skulls in the top section.... the steampunk skull in the mount.... lots of bits..... so it was a case of painting the 'frame'....i used a distressed paint technique... and papers from CRAFTYCHAOS http://www.craftychaosdesigns.co.uk/ THE BEST DIGI PAPERS EVER!


I bound up a plastic skeleton to make him appear as if hes sort of mummified..... i've used loads of bits and pieces i have had laying around waiting......


..... a dragon i made from clay..... a few skulls i made from clay too.


....charms, a bottle........ some rolled up canvas (fabric... see? )...... a small twig with tiny skulls hanging fom it..... i made tiny bandages so my mummy would have a few 'spares'....(more fabric!) and a brooch in the bottom centre hole......

.... now as for stamps.... i have used digis from SMEARED INK.... to make the 2x faux porcelain skulls, a digi from DELICIOUS DOODLES for the brooch and on the bottle is a real stamped label but i dont know whose...sorry. I hope you can join us this week..... the full blog roll is on my side bar.

I shall enter this into the following challenges....
