Someday, the altered art you make today will be
old, faded, falling apart, and someone else will salvage the bits and use them
in new altered art.It's the best that any piece of art can hope for

Believe and Dream and

give the mountboard alot of hammering! Not with a hammer of course, though I was tempted at times. This has gone through a few changes! I coloured it with - umm guess distress inks, covered with utee and then inked up the stars background stamp with gold ink - too subtle -  over stamped that with green ink  ok so far -  laid this over the hot utee and added another layer of utee -yep looking good. but could I decide what to do next? Could I buffalo!

So I decided to triple emboss with the steampunk baubles -errmmmm ok i thought . 'hey i know I will pick up the baubles with Vivagold -err... nope that didn't work - I know lets reheat the utee and see what happens. YUM!! the vivagold kinda separated and gave a love mottled effect - i wonder what happens if you spray cosmic shimmers over warmish utee and reheat? Yum more lovely mottled glimmered effects.
Looking good now after a very shaky start! Well actually it looks gorgeous! Too Gorgeous to cover up, so I picked out the Believe Dream Create stamp from my personal box of AS stamps and triple embossed this on a scrap of mountboard, after all if you don't Believe and cant Dream at Christmas its a sad old world.
Bit of wire and a few beads and a glass star and here is Tuesday's Tag
