Welcome! ~ Velkommen!
Here, in my little corner of bloglandia, is my blog about my crafts. Until recentley I've blogged about my card making. Now, in 2011, I'll try to do different things also, such as sewing (patchwork), knitting, crochet, baking, along with some card making...

TIOT # 51 ~ Altered Mousepad

Time for a new Try It Out Tuesday at SCACD! Today we were asked to alter something using one of the darling images of sweet Aurora. Well, I'm a card maker, and seldom do any altered objects, but when I saw this fun liquid mousepad in the store, I knew I had found my object for today's challenge! *LOL* It's a photo frame mousepad, so I thought it doesn't have to be a photo, a stamped and colored image will add a nice touch to my PC table.

This is how it looked:

(sorry about the light reflections, hard to get good pictures...)

On the back there's an opening to slide the picture/image through:

I used Aurora with Tulips from the Aurora Collection, she's just the cutest lil' sprite! I love to work with her! Colored with Prismacolor pencils, cut her out with Nestabilites Labels 4. I added Stickles on the Tulips.
I hope this counts as an altered object, yes, I know, I took an easy way out! *LOL*

On the company blog Follow Your Heart you can see all the wonderful projects by the rest of the DT ladies!
