May challenge - Altered Eclectics

Good morning bloggaroos!

May. At least I think it is. Easy to get confused with all the snow outside! lol.

The may challenge is now happening over at Altered Eclectics, and I decided to alter a burlap panel for the occasion.

I love these panels, because they have a wooden frame, including a piece behind the main burlap front, so it's really sturdy and has a lot less give than a canvas.

I played with lots of dies and metal embellishments, and even a carousel charm I rescued from a broken necklace that appeared at work.

I do love these butterflies... They came in a pack of six, and I'm down to my last one now!
The bottle of vie (that's life for those who are French-challenged) is all purtyfied (that's not French, I just made that up) with crackle accents and a cork stopper!

I can't get the pictures to show the angel wings properly... In person they look quite different, and shimmer beautifully. I have this hanging on the wall above my desk now, next to the previous panel I made.

That's my make for Altered Eclectics. Hope you'll swing by and check out the other inspiration lined up for you, and I'll be back in a minute with another post!
