A is for Altered 39

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, January 19, 2014 @ 10:01 PM | ,

Hi there! It's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! Thanks to all who joined along with last week's challenge! This week's theme is all about the letter "A". Will you use product from American Crafts? Create a whole album? An Assemblage? Use Adhesives in a special way? Whatever your take - this week we are all about the letter A
When I think of the letter "A" the word "Art" immediately comes to mind so I pulled out an art journal cover that was waiting to be altered:
I adhered fun French Industrial paper to the cover, randomly stamped various Bitty Grunge images, applied various mediums including the following: Bolivian Blue Acrylic Glaze, Gesso, Black Archival Ink, Stream Color Wash and Metallic Distress Acrylic Paint.
For the focal image, I featured one of the fun Creative Collages
then embellished with a variety of metal trinkets and flowers:
Thanks so much for visiting! Please be sure to visit the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog to see what the rest of the DT has created!
Be Sweet ;)
