May challenge - Altered Eclectics

Morning all,

Ohhhh, it's May! That means it's not long until we go on holiday! Really need it, as instead of cutting down at work like I was supposed to, my work has about doubled since before Christmas. Something's gotta give, and I'd rather it wasn't me! lol.

On a more fun note, it's time for a new challenge over at Altered Eclectics!

I had some fun with a trio of mini canvases (each 10cm square).

The colours haven't quite come out as true to life as I'd hoped, but I'm really loving the crackle medium I used here, and the penny farthing is one of my favourite charms ever. The charms and flowers all came out of a recent Craft Box, as did the gorgeous gold micro beads.

The music is from an actual sheet of music. We got donated a whole stack of it at work, and some were not fit to be sold (falling apart), but perfect for crafting with! Of course, I bought some to play on the piano as well as the craft desk too, lol.

I hope you're feeling inspired to come and play with us this month!

Back in just a minute with another post!
