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

In the teens…….

Only Eighteen Days to go to HugBinders – gulp its looming fast, so I thought I better get my A in G and get a prize made for the raffle – we have so many gorgeous prizes donated already it was a bit  daunting!
 Really had no idea what to do, so I just went to my secret stash of ‘stuff I will do something with one day’ closed my eyes and grabbed something – the first thing I laid my hands on was this fabby little box…..


Still no idea of what I was going to do with it, I grabbed some paint, rifled through another pile of secret stash of ‘things that can be used on projects involving the ‘stuff I will do something with one day’ stash’
As often happens my hand went towards my most favourite colour from the Eco Green range of paint - Green Patina.
Fancied  a play with some metal, which I haven't done for a while – tragedy I was nearly out of silver aluminium - how did that happen?? I hate running out of stuff! I did have enough to cover the sides of the box – so all was alright with the world.

Then as you can see I filled it with a bit of this and a bit of that and the end result is a bit of Nicks Tat (hey I'm a poet and didn't know it)

Right, off now to do the exciting things in life like get a new tyre for the car!


  1. Ooohhh it's fab! Really don't know which prize I want to win any more - can I have them all please???? lol

  2. When I don't know what I'm going to do, I end up making nothing. When you don't know what you're going to do, you end up making something as lovely as this. x

  3. it's alright I 'spose LOL
    But better than alright, it's gorgeous x

  4. Wow some lucky person is going to be thrilled to bits to win this. x

  5. This is beautiful! I love your mixed media art. That was what I orginally started with, what originally captured my interest in art, and I am really wanting to return to that fun spontaneous realm.

  6. What a cool box to begin with. You really lucked out on that find. And I love the way you decorated it too. Very inspirational.

  7. Can I win it please
