1st of the Month....

Well it's the 1st October so that can only mean it's time for a new Challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu. The theme for this month for us purples is Halloween. I just love Halloween. I decided to alter a cheap frame that cost only £1. Here is the before photo....


I then covered it in dylusions paint in purple & hints of the lime green colour. Then I got out my graphic 45 papers & embellishments using the amazing Rare Oddities.......this is how it turned out. Really rather pleased with it. Let me know what you think.



The little bottles are from Tim Holtz and I've filled them with liquid pearls. 
Had great fun making this. Anyway please do pop over and take a look at what all my wonderful team mates have made. Hope everyone is well, thanks for stopping by always appreciated. 
Don't forget I'm having a big giveaway when I reach 75 followers and it will include all brand new items including some Graphic 45 !!
Big hugs 
Elaine xx

  8. Oh it's wonderful! I always love to see people alter objects. The results are unique and geared to their personality. The little bottles are so cute and I love how the Liquid pearls has movement in it. It's working it's magic. LOL
