The SCD challenge this week was Memories. Now I thought this theme was really lovely it reminded me of all the lovely memories I have tucked away in my head, it has taken half lifetime (and a bit) to amass so many. I instantly new what I would do. My son Paul and his lovely finance Jenni are just beginning their journey together and it seemed fitting to make that my subject. I used a photo of them and changed it to sepia for the aged look and my favorite DI dried marigold and touched the edges with spiced marmalade and antique paper. I stamped with a lovely hearts and text and a second with swirls. Then printed the words and stuck them to a fragment and a bit of bling. I must say I love the look and it feels so personal. My other project this weekend was a bit of a disaster I tried the crackle box out of the July Craft Stamper. It says to paint a layer of acrylic paint on a box let dry, then paint PVA spritzed with water and whilst wet paint on a light colour acrylic and whist it dry it will crackle. But NO it did not crackle don't know what I did wrong DOH, if anyone can help with advice?. So no other pictures of alterted art to share except my torso.
