Thinking Lavender at Altered Pages this month


Hi Everyone!  Yes it's that time again for another fabulous Altered Art Challenge over at Altered Pages.

This month with spring in the air for most of the Northern Hemisphere we are wanting you to turn your thoughts to this magical season and in particular the color of Lavender.

My project which is a framed ATC wall hanging was inspired by a recent post I saw over on the Unruly Paper Arts Blog by Petra Berendsen.

In creating this I was also on a mission to use up my left over scraps which include the paper used for the frame, my multicolored chalk stamped background which was left over from some previous ATC's as was the collage sentiment.  I have also used the Wildflowers Volume 1 Stamp Set by Dark Room Door, Pearl Dew Drops and Pink Tear Drops from The Robin's Nest, die cut butterflies, and a punch for the leaves.  My frame was cut from a piece of chipboard using my Courture Creations Victorian Rectangle Cutting Die.




The Altered Pages Supplies Used include an ATC Sized Eco Art Board, Foiling, some Pink Silk Ribbon
and a Lavender Fabric Flower.

Be sure to pop over to the Altered Pages Challenge Site to play along as well as to see the rest of the Design Teams creations for March's Challenge.  They are all so unique and include an Altered Art Block, Tags, and an Easter Egg showcasing this beautiful shade of purple.

I am also entering this project into the following challenges:-

Crafty Network Bloggers - March Spring/Pastels Challenge
Tuesday Alchemy - #52 Anything Goes
Celebrate the Occassion - #103 Spring is in the Air
