Altered Wall Hook

Well here I am again My Dear Sweet Friends

I have several Design Team projects going live today and right now I am wearing my Altered Eclectics DT Hat.  For my project I decided to alter an old wall hook and you can see the finished hook below.  I meant to take a photo of the old wall hook but totally forgot.  My bad!!

(This Image is from Fitztown called Fae 21)

This project was a lot of fun and in some ways pretty easy.  I used my Copics to color the image and put it aside while I worked on the wall hook.  I have listed the colors I used further down in this post.  

I have several old wall hooks laying around and decided to use one of them for this project.  Actually what I plan on doing is altering two more later this month with different Fae images (they are so amazing).  I will share all three finished wall hooks once they are done.  

I prepped the front of the wall hook by doing a little sanding to get all the messy stuff off.  I added a coat of sealant and let it dry.  And then all I needed to do was add the colored image to the front of the hook with some Mod Podge.  I used several coats and allowed time for drying in between.  I added a final coat of varnish and once dry I added the purple ribbon. 

It always is fun to take something old and turn it into something new.

I hope you will join in our challenge this month and you can find all the details on the Altered Eclectics Challenge Blog.

Thanks for stopping by - I always appreciate it.  Looking forward to seeing what you create for our March Challenge.

Cinderella goes Camo

Hello my dear sweet friends -

I hope this finds you doing well.  It's been a while since I have been able to post and yet I have been able to get quite a few loose ends tied up.  I ended up making a quick trip to California to get the rest of personal stuff out of storage.  I am no longer scattered across three states and I can't even begin to express how wonderful that feels.  It will take me some time to get all my craft stuff set up and organized again but it looks like I will be able to really get on the ground running again.  It was a group effort and my sisters and brother in law were amazing and so incredibly helpful.  

A few days before the trip I received a phone call (out of the blue) from a dear friend I worked with at the Police Department in California 20 years ago.  It was great hearing from him and we have been having fun getting caught up on things. My my, so many new and exciting changes.  I am still working on getting my health back on track and doctors say I a…

You are Mer-Mazing!!!

Happy Tuesday Sweet Friends
I hope you are having a fabulous day!!  And I am really hopeful it's not overly hot where you are.  It's suppose to be 114 degrees here today and I am NOT looking forward to that.   What I am looking forward to is sharing my newest creation using this absolutely amazing image by Sherri Baldy.  She was so much fun to color and the background was really fun to create as well.  I just love her - she looks like she's just chillin' and enjoying her surroundings.  It's kind of magical and I would love to be there with her.  

I used Copics to color her and the colors I used are:
B00, 02, 04, 05, 12, 14 (Background and her Eyes) E000, 00 11, 31, 33, 35   (Skin and Sand). RV02, 04, 21, 23 (Water Background) V01, 05, 06, 09  (Mermaid tail, top, flowers, background and seaweed) YG21, 23, 25   (Water Background) YR21, 23, 25 (Hair)
I hope she brings you a smile.  Here's the link to her in Sherri's Etsy Shop: Sherri Baldy on Etsy - Image 661 Here's the lin…
