Sarah Hurley: Alter Something!

Good evening everyone, hope you are well! Here I am with my DT project for this months challenge over at Sarah Hurley Challenges which is one of my favourite themes-Alter Something! :-)
I had some door hangers hanging around waiting for my attention so I thought it would be perfect to use with Sarah Hurley's Retro Home kit which I adore! I printed out the pennants and wrote 'Do not Disturb' with type stamps I got from ebay. I then covered the door hanger with the paper and cut round. I then arranged my message, and added gems to each top corner, and to the top of the door hanger. Lastly I added three colours of ribbon which matched the colours of my project.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp: Anything Goes
LEJ Designs: Bling, Bling
Art With No Boundaries: Anything Goes
Kaboodle Doodles: Pennants
Love to Create Challenge: Spots and Dots
Make it Monday: Anything Goes
Stamps+Fun=Creativity: Pennants
Fab n Funky Challenges: No Stamped Images
Little Red Wagon: Use Chevrons

Thank you for visiting and for your lovely comments :-)

Crafty Ribbons/Fiskars LED canvas

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well. I am here to share a backlit canvas using my Fiskars tools in a rather unusual way. I took the canvas off from the frame and folded it in half to randomly punch across the front of the canvas. I kept the cuttings for later. I then stapled the canvas back onto the frame. Next I stapled muslin fabric across the front of the canvas. I then added Clermont Cotton Lace across the bottom of the canvas as a border. I then got out my flexmarkers and coloured the punched canvas pieces in three complimentary colours. I then asked tiny gems to the centre of each and glued them randomly like flowers across the muslin fabric.

Thank you for visiting and for all your lovely comments!
