Altered Canvas Swap

I am hosting an altered canvas swap at my group and I had 2 to make, one lady wanted roosters and the other likes quotes so these are what I came up with.... Hope they like them

I love the USA

I love hubby and I both have an American heritage in our family tree so it gives me an excuse to make some gorgeous things. Here is the American Eagle I have just made, he is such a big fellow and was a joy to make

Last post for today.......

Last post, I I really need to make this a weekly thing instead of inundating everyone once a month

I made this altered altoid tin for a halloween swap in my ATC swap, the photos unfortunately dont do it justice as in the flesh it is very 3D. Wish I had more access to altoid tins in Oz. They are fantastic tins to alter

On my group

On my Australian Altered Arts group, I am holding a monthly challenge, I post a choice of two pictures and then the girls can make whatever they want from them and the members then vote for their favourite. I m not competing but I did contribute and made this tin for pens, it has come in very handy and takes pride and place on my desk at work. Im also hosting a domino swap and I have altered these dominoes and then made a wallet to put them in, Im really happy with how they turned out

Cushions and dolls

Ive decided to make some mix matched cushions for my lounge, here is the first, Ive traced out a heap to redwork and to paint, just need to get started on them. I then decided I needed dolls for the laundry...can never have enough dolls in all rooms of the house can

Made some things for myself

Im happy with how these turned out, I have a reall addiction for Prairie dolls at the moment so made these ones up and aged a fruit tin to put them in, I also made some owls...Im infatuated with owls and these were the perfect size for my bookshelf

Halloween Swaps

I have been busy making some halloween swap items for 2 yahoo groups I am in, the first could be anything so I made Laura Ann a cute cat and the second is a make do.
