All Crafts Challenge August Start

It's the first Monday in the month and that means its a new 
 bi-monthly challenge
I am proud to announce that Elaine has asked me to stop, so this is my first official challenge piece
our sponsors this challenge are

 I have decided to alter a large vitamin pot into a pen holder, and forgot to take a photo before  I took the label off 
 So what did I do
1. I stippled the pot with acrylic paint , using a shaving brush in  layers of blue for the sky & green for the ground
 2, I fussy cut 2 of the  flower shelf images from Bugaboo
then coloured them with Promarkers and Graphit pens

3.When the pot was dry I used PVA to stick the images on to the pot

 4. To Finish off I added Papermainia mini buttons to each of the flowers centres. Assorted card butterflies with pearls as their torso and finally blue ric-rak around the tub lid.
Even if I say so myself the pot looks lovely.
Thanks for calling by
let me know what you think.
Don't forget to join us at
where anything but a card goes
Hugs xx
