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

Another Bit of Old Tat

A little Birthday Card/Pressie for a dear friend in Scotland - Mrs Mc is always so generous to me, sending little bits and pieces and how do I repay her?? Poor soul has a little bit of my tat for her birthday - not really fair payback is it ha ha

I hope she likes it.

It is another wooden block that I had left over from the blocks I had cut for my SIL's wedding invites. Wood is lovely to work on as it can take so much work on it. I embossed a piece of card and glued it to the block and then covered the whole thing using a technique I have learnt on Andy's course to supposedly get a burnt copper effect, but I played around with the technique and got a.... well a.... a nice effect LOL
Then I dribbled some crackle glaze over the top and coloured this with a copper krylon pen, Shrink plastic wings and a clay heart and clay word - friendship..

Isn't the internet a wonderful thing, I have made so many wonderful friends over the cyberwaves that I would never have met if it wasn't for Mr Bill Gates!
Spent  a wonderful weekend 'oop North with 'internet' friends, but now they arent internet friends they are real friends.

whoops .... who didnt get into the picture quick enough after she set the self timer on the camera.....

It is another friends birthday tomorrow and I have made her something that I actually really like and havent given it a 'tat' title, will post it after she has seen it so if you would like to see it please visit my blog soon x
