The first of the month means two new altered art challenges, and I'm back again to show you my DT project for Rhedd's Creative Spirit.
I recently got my hands on a pack of Sharpies, and naturally needed something to store them in when I got them home. A quick bit of research told me that they're best stored with the tip facing downwards, so I needed a pen-pot type container, rather than a box or bag.
As it turned out, a beer bottle container was the exact perfect diameter to store all of my pens comfortably, while still leaving space to actually get the pens out!
So I went from this:
I couldn't resist using some crazing Distress Collage medium on my butterfly. It adds a lovely bit of detail, without being overpowering.
I found some gold beading wire (again a left-over from an old hobby!), which I thought added nice accent that complements the greens, blues and hints of gold used to colour the tub.
And that's my Sharpie tub! Useful, and looks so pretty sitting on my desk.
I hope you'll come and play along with us at Rhedd's Creative Spirit this month.
Have a fantabulous day,
