And here we are at the first of the month again! Time is just flying past. Of course it means that there's a new Anything altered art goes challenge starting over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit, and this month I have a set of drawers to show you.
I used some DCWV paper for this, which I just love... The unit itself was painted with Frayed Burlap Distress paint before papering.
One side, with some Tattered Floral die-cut flowers and metal leaves.
The top. Another tattered floral flower and tattered leaves too.
The polaroid picture was part of the paper pad, and I embellished it with some goodies, including a filigree shape I cut in half.
The front has more filigree and some buttons pretending to be knobs :-)
I also used some alcohol ink on the sides of the drawers, which adds that little something when they are opened, I think...
I did have a "before" picture, which I took to show how drastic the transformation was. This came into the charity shop one day whilst I was working, and it was looking rather bedraggled and faded from being left out in strong sunlight. If I hadn't been there to intercept it, it would doubtless have ended up in the bin, so I'm glad I managed to grab it and give it a new lease of life.
But silly me, I can't find the before picture anywhere! I do have one taken after I'd gessoed the base unit, which was the most bedraggled of all, so it doesn't show the full effect...
Anyways, it's your turn. Come see what my fellow DT have made this month, and then why not play along?
Have a fantastic day!
