January Challenge - Rhedd's Creative Spirit

Good morning bloggaroos, and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

If you're anything like me, you're very glad to see the back of 2016. Here's hoping 2017 will be a better one for all.

And what better way to kick it off than with some altered art? A great time to come play along at Rhedd's Creative Spirit's January challenge!

I took a boring old tray, and turned it into a much prettier one.

I used Docrafts decoupage papers, distress paints and a pretty Robin I found at The Works.

This is how it started life:

A closer look at the cluster on the front. It's made from an MDF oval from Fernli designs, which I painted, stamped and distressed, before adding the gorgeous gem centre and WOC flowers.

That's it from me, please do go see what my fellow teamies have been up to, and why not come and play with us?

Have a most fantabulous 2017!
