This month's Get Altered Challenge
at eclectic Paperie is to alter a spoon!If you pop on over to eP and click on the design team projects you will see lots of gorgeous inspiration. Many of them are quite antique-y and vintage-y mine is very different from those!
What happens when you take a plain ole wooden spoon. . .
and add some $1 earrings off the Walmart clearance rack? . . .
You get - fish!Yep, I went all fun, bright, and whimsical with my altered spoons and made them in to fish!
The background started with Gel Medium applied to a canvas through a stencil by istencils to create a resist.
Layers of Tim Holtz Distress Paint in Salty Ocean, Broken China, Mowed Lawn, and Seedless Preserves sprayed with water and moved around the canvas came next. Then Silks Acrylic Glaze in Sky Blue to add a little shimmer.
I rubber stamped script on the backs of sea glass chips with Staz-On Ink and used them to make a frame.
Just add fish and you have a cute piece of artwork! My grand daughter's favorite creatures are fish so this piece will hang in her room.
