Altering it!

Hello blog land!  Longtime no post eh?  

I have been so much into altering lately, hats, boxes, toasters (not really), and just about anything I can!

Today over at Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls we are kicking off our second challenge!  We challenge you to Alter it!  Spook it out, Burtonize it, do what you will... just ALTER!  This is a great chance to bust out those sprays, embossing powders, pains, and any fun medium you prefer to start altering away!

I took this box, which I happily applied Crackle paint to....

and turned it into this:
Close up of the bottle caps

Of course this is just the top of the box, I have not yet finished the whole project!  It is going to be an album in a box all about ME!  and my idiosyncrasies!  If you know me, you know that the theme is well fitting!  I love how it turned out!  Love the rich purples, and can't believe I didn't smudge the image by applying ink so close to it all around it.  I have been playing with all my embossing powders a lot lately! You probably can't tell but, the Skull, the Spider, and the small bottle cap with the two tones are all done with embossing powder!  I hope you have enjoyed my altered project!  Please head on over to Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls and get your entries in, most importantly leave the gals some lovin'!  They have done some awesome stuff for you to see!
