Hello crafty friends ! Today starts the new Simply Create too Challenge for the month of May and here is my inspirational post. One of my friends is getting married today and I prepared for her and her husband a canvas as a wedding gift. For this canvas, I have been really inspired by Sharon Ziv Noomish.

Altered fan - Creative Artiste Mixed Media Challenge

Hello Mixed Media friends !   After a few weeks of absence, I am coming back with a new altered object: an altered fan. In my opinion, fans are the most delicate and feminine accessories there can be. They have a very special place in my heart. One of the very first object I altered was a fan. And I loved it. Last year, inspired by Frank Garcia, I made a shabby chic pink altered fan. I gave it to a friend of mine who basolutely loved it and asked me to make a similar one, in mint/blue. Therefore, I came up with this one... [Lire la suite]

Altered jewelry holder - Bleeding Art Challenge

Hello Everyone ! Today I am sharing with you my entry to the March Bleeding Art Challenge.

I also used white gesso, rust effect paste from Finnabair in purple and turquoise, some embossing powder for the glitter and I painted the cabochons with Finnabair's metallic acrylic paint Crocus...

Shape of My Art - February Play with Art Playground

Hello crafty friends ! Today I am sharing with you my entry to the February Art PlayGround Challenge, "Shape of my art".
