Most of you know by now there's a bunch of things I don't "do". For example, I don't "do" Halloween, or Easter. I also struggle with froo-froo and girly. Something else I don't "do" is altered art. I mean, I live in a tiny condo ... where would it put it?!
So it may surprise you to learn that I ... altered something. I DID! It's mostly because my stampy pal Libby made her DT debut over at the Stampotique Designers Challenge blog, and the current challenge is Alter It.
So I did. This is what I made:
So I had the letter, and I started playing. Here it is mostly in the raw:
I knew I wanted one of my favorite sentiments front and center:
You know, Libby is responsible for me owning this sentiment, so this is just perfect for her debut, don't you agree? :D
I also decided this altering thing is second only to scrapbooking in that you get to use so much of your s-crap, and in this case it doesn't even matter if it's FAT and FLOOFY, so I went for it:
I also used a big-a$$ button on the bottom right:
RuffHaven. She said to tie some ribbon around the bottom of the E, or thread it through, so I could hang even more stuff from it. I poked holes through the bottom and up to where those pearls are, threaded the twine through with a long needle, and tied the twine through pearls from my SU Pretties kit both top and bottom:
So, the E is now done. At this rate I will be 112 years old by the time I spell out EMBELLISH. So many letters. I need a new word, but it needs to have an E in it. I'll work on that.
Thanks for stopping by!
