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

Happy Birthday My Foul Friend ....

Whoops sorry I meant FOWL friend.... Kathy aka Ducklady share a mutual love of feathered things and craft. Not a duck or a chicken to be seen on this altered book, which is now a fully functional clock though.

There are a few niches cut around the sides of the book, with some pulley out things 

Including an old slide - not telling you what the picture is

and a 'drawer' made from a matchbox

and a door in the cover

Terrible picture of inside the door - this was where the glossy accents splurged into as I mentioned in my last blog post - was at the time of posting still a little cloudy, hopefully it will dry out over time, but there was more in there than I intended! - filled with cogs, accent beads and bits and pieces

Hope you had a lovely Birthday Kathy and were properly spoilt -  sorry about the bit of tat entering your lovely home - dont forget which cupboard you shove it in, cos we may be passing your house soon and I will be in to check!

  4. Huh! this lovely piece is on my sideboard on display and has been shown to everyone who calls, whether they wanted to see it or not!! We have all marvelled at the ingenious way you made it, it is so clever. I seem to find something new to look at every time I look at it! Thank you Chicken fiend/friend. xxxxx

  5. Fabby piece as usual. Think Kthy likes it lol
