National Scrapbook Day NSD2014 With Wear Crafts - Altered Something With Scrappyjen

National Scrapbook Day NSD2014 With Wear Crafts - Altered Something With Scrappyjen
The lovely Ali from Ali-Craft has these gorgeous boards to alter. I needed a new icon for my desk to inspire... I love butterflies... and hey, we all want to soar, don't we? So here goes...

Layer of Pearlescent Dreamweaver Paste left to dry and then covered with a layer of Dreamweaver Crackle Paste.
Stipled with Splendour Antique Ink Palette and a Dreamweaver Stencil brush.
Stamped with Stampendous Jumbo Butterfly Trio in Colorbox Mixed Media Ink.
Corner of Dreamweaver Embossing Paste with Frantage Fragements and Glass Glitter pressed in.
Woodware Chippie Alphabet embossed with Stampendous Shabby Blue and embossed Royal Blue edges. 
Find something and go get sticky, pasty and messy... or cover it with paper... or paint it... or whatever you fancy... just go change something mundane into a work of art... are you still here? Go! Alter! Now! (he he he!) jx

So what else is in store?

9am-10am Launch (you are here now and found us - well done!)
