Altered Challenge Blog Hop!

Firstly, if you haven't joined in with our blog hop and would like to, please click HERE to go back to the start where you will find all the information you need to join in with us.

As well as you visiting our design teams blogs, we have included visits to the 3 Stamp Man blogs, so welcome to our ATC Swap Blog!

You have just arrived from Janet's blog, (hopefully!). Janet runs our ATC Swaps here. She does a fantastic job with the swaps and I know that the ladies that join in love it, so if you haven't joined in yet, bookmark this page now!!

Well, you are back with me as I altered more than 1 letter, my letter this time is an S that I decorated with Ferro and Terra textural paints. I left the colours as they are but added gold highlights randomly with a Krylon pen and also used it to colour the chippie swirls.

I made the flowers from scrunched up paper painted with Starburst Stains.

The prize I have for you here is

Hero Arts CL150 Heartfelt Messages a set of clear stamps

Don't forget to leave a comment under this post before you head off over to Kay's Crafty Corner

Bye for now!!

Swaps have been posted!

Huge thanks to everyone who took part in the swaps for August - the standard of work going into these miniature works of art is brilliant and I feel very lucky getting to see them all. We had 24 players for the Time swap and choosing a feature artist was not an easy task but after a lot of deliberation here is the Atc for August.

Made by Edna Winstanley from Blackpool. Not sure if Edna has a blog as there were no blog details on her atcs but I loved how she has put these elements together. Well done Edna - I have popped a note in your envelope so if you could get back to me with a choice of 3 topics for us to choose Decembers theme.

I hope you like the choices I have made for you all. I have begun a Thank you thread in the left hand column - it would be great if you could add your thanks there. Just click on the thanks and a new page will appear.
So I am looking forward to seeing those "The Look" atcs for Octobers theme. Happy crafting xx Janet
