I hope to be able to do this. Am needing to do something after cleaning my apt back up from this hectic week of going back and forth!
I still have letters to alter, and a bird house or two.
I also had picked up a shelf to try adding to the top of my thing behind my desk...it is still in my trunk after what happened.

I'm such a messy scrappper, i have to be in ongoing 'therapy' to get & keep mine in order! LOL!

I'm so very sorry about your friends Janet. I've run back through differnt posts and have seen what happened. My heart goes out to you & the families & friends. May God wrap each one in the shelter of His Love.
Blessings & prayers for you,
Celia

Here's a "before" pic of a canvas I am "altering." Of course, to me, the word "altering" doesn't seem to apply to a canvas, since it's purpose is to be "altered." To me, and "Altered canvas" is just "art"... but we'll see what it turnes into i guess. I will be doing another for the Altered Canvas Swap, as well

Here is my "After" pic! This is going to be mailed to a friend, i hope she likes it. the monkey theme is significant but is too long a story to tell. lol. old nickname, we'll just leave it at that.

I finished the ATG and holder. Most of it was already finished except the flower so I chose the colors of flowers that were my friends favorites.

I can see tons of pretty ribbons tied to it! I can't wait to see what you do to it.

Just don't take the green spices and put them in zip lock baggies. I was doing that to the spices I use and DH said it looked like I was bagging up pot. LOL! so I got some small canning jars for the spices I used. the others I tossed.

ok, quick question: would you say the paper in the bottom of this tray is more turquoise or blue? to my mind, turquoise is a type of blue... thoughts?

I would say turquoise, but it's hard to tell. And I have seen two shades of turquoise....one that leans towards blue and the other more towards green. LOL! I base my answer on the turquoise stone...

yeah... well thanks anyway. working on another canvas now. this one's just for myself, maybe in my living room. patriotic color scheme, a short verse about home and family... i think it's going to turn out nice.

Sounds like it will be nice! So you have red, white and blue in your living room? Is it the country colors or the bright?

I'm working on the spice rack. I've got it painted black....LOL...and that's it.
