January's Altered Arts Challenge

This month I have the pleasure of issuing the challenge for the SSPT blog, and while I enjoy a large range of crafting techinques my most favorite is altering items. So look around your home, scrap room or visit a Arts & Craft store and find something to alter. It can be a piece of wood, a glass block, paper mache, a clipboard or just about anything! There are two exceptions...... yes you guessed it, no cards or scrapbook page layouts. The prize will be a Cricut French Manor cart. make sure to link your creations below. Happy crafting.....Deborah.

Deborah's January Challenge

For this challenge I decided to alter a glass block for my GD Rian. I used a file from myvinyldesigner.com and some cuts from the Hello Kitty Font cart. I used "etch" colored vinyl to create the frosted look on the block. I threw in some stickers, buttons & ribbon and this is what I came up with. Looking forward to seeing your creations so make sure that you link your project submissions below on the January 2, 2011 post so that you can be entered to win the French Manor cart.

Linda's January Challenge Project

Hi, everyone!
If you are like me, your scrapbooking tools are taking over! I never seem to have enough containers to hold them all. So, I altered a plain old coffee can to serve as a tool caddy. I covered the can with paper, then fussy cut the border and added it. Tons of Stickles were then added to the images. Then, I used my Imagine to create some embellishments for the back side using the Lori's Garden cartridge.(the first picture is the back side with the Lori's Garden images.) Once that was done (you can see the project at this stage in the last pic) I felt it needed some dimension, so I broke out my Viva Decor pearl pen and went to town adding pearl drops to the design. The ribbon isn't ribbon at all! It's rayon seam binding that I colored with alcohol inks! Hope you like it!!


Lynne's January Challenge!!

I hope everyone has had a wonderful holiday and a terrific New Year so far! I hope you all got lots of crafting goodies under your tree!!
For this challenge, I used some plain ole' cardboard sheets and turned it into a recipe book! I also used my cricut for the letters and a couple flowers!! On the inside are colored index cards to seperate the recipe types!

Can't wait to see what you come up with!!
Don't forget, every month we issue a new, fun challenge!!
