July is with us and for this month I’m guest designing for Alter It Monthly as my friend Anika is taking a little break this month and asked me if I would like to have a go. I love joining in with the guys over at Alter It Monthly, when I can, so I jumped at the chance!
I think that this month’s challenge theme freaked out some of the design team hence why there are some stand in designers! LOL! But it isn’t going to freak you out now is it?
Valley Of The DOLLS!
Ok so I did initially think of altering a dolls head but I’ve got to admit that would have freaked me out a wee bit too. So I scoured Ebay for some doll related articles and found knitting pattern books with lots of lovely doll pictures.
I’ve altered the back of the smaller mini-canvases from Crafty Individuals and added the bemused picture of a Sindy doll (you remember them? – I’ve just aged myself haven’t I?) with packaging tape transfer.
Added a few of my favourite trinkets, some found objects, some nicely rusted.
The piece is called ‘Thoughts In My Head’ and now you all have an open view into what goes on! Although I think it is actually a little bit more chaotic in there usually!
Have fun with this one.
