I love this type of doors and oriental art is always very intricate and detailed.  So for my background, I used some modeling paste together with my beloved stencil "Swirly Florals"...

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]
