Mo's challenges and this week i challenged the girls to "Alter something" I have had these starbucks cups laying around for quite sometime and i love using them in my craft room/studio as if they topple over there is no mess and of course your coffee stays warm for ages. I also like to grab coffeee on my way out the house when i grab my water bottle and these are ideal, NO MESS.
Bethy's wagon on your cup. I aksed my seven year old daughter what she thought of the image and she said that it looks like little Bethy is selling her brother and sister so that was what i used for the sentiment on the wagon "family good to go", i wrote the sentiment, but when i did i looked at my childs handwriting and you know how kids sometimes get their letters back to front so that was how i wrote it. I also added a bit of a distressed look to the wagon, giving it a bit of a paint peeled look. I followed a tutorial on Debbie Pamment's blog using paint net, which is a free downloadable programme, and trust me, she made it so easy to follow, as we all know i have MAJOR technology issues, being a child born in the sixties. If i can do it anyone can.
I know its a long post and has lots of photos, but how do you take a picture of something thats round? any tips, LOL
Hope you will come and play at Mo's this week
