All Things Altered-Spring Hop!

Happy Friday and Happy Spring!

I for one and happy that it's finally thawing out up here on our little mountain! Of course I am not looking forward to the heat following the Spring but the sun does start to feel good when out and about. 

Today you are joining us on this fun blog hop from the beginning which is Pam's blog, however you must have found your way to me from Debbie's blog. A big welcome to you!

Let's get to hopping and the eye candy we have all prepared for you!  A few will have prizes along the way so be sure to leave comments!

Today I have altered yet another Hat... using a slightly Halloweenish image, but giving it more of a Spring feel to it!  I have used my Steampunk image Creator and Monster from artist Abigail Larson.  Colored them as bright as I could (bright for me anyway) and added Tattered Angels to the grungboard and hat itself.  Here is my hat from start to finish...

Blank hat


Used Tattered Angels and Dylusion sprays 


Ebelished the hat with Grunge board, bottle caps, and an image :) 





I hope you have enjoyed my altered Hat!  Your next stop is Gloria please head on over to see what beauty she has for you!

Oh and in case you just happen to stop by my blog because you are a follower and would like to start from the beginning here is the complete list for your Hopping pleasure!

macmomma said...

How cute! Such a unique idea! Last summer I decided I HAD to have a few (5 or 6) hats similar to this so I could wear them when I was gardening! Didn't work out so well but now I know what I can do with them! I know a few people who woould love something like this as a gift! Thanks for the inspiration and hubby will thank you since I will be giving them as gifts and making room for more MUST Haves that will probably not work out! LOL
