What am I doing you ask?

Well, right in the middle of packing, getting stuff ready to go I am doing a major altered art project. This just isn't an ATC, a canvas or anything like that...oh no.......

I have decided to go all out and I mean all out. Patti and I are doing an altered art exchange of our favorite movies. Well, of course everyone knows mine is Breakfast at Tiffanys but hers is The Wizard of Oz.

Now I could have and almost did go oh yellow brick road, lollipops, bright colors the whole nine yards...and I thought this would be awesome to do a canvas.

Nope didn't do that either....... my wonderful closet artist husband had some great ideas. So, off to ACMoore we went last night. I had already bought my main item I wanted to alter all I needed was some items from Rick's input.

$50.00 bucks later and I had just about everything to do this project. Today I started doing one of the AWESOME ideas Rick had for the base and two hours later I have 1/4 th of it done.

I had to take a break and back away from it before I pulled my hair out. Now that it is on my table behind me I can turn around and look at it and think..... he was so right this is perfect!!!!

As I work more and more on it and use some of his ideas this is going to be cool.
I hope Patti loves it as much as I love making it.

So, back to the project I go as soon as I get this splinter out from under my fingernail.
Happy Saturday everyone

Hello Veronica, I do hope you get it all sorted :)
Encourage you husband to paint and show, that will be good for him I think.
Hoping that you are splinter free now.
Wishing you a great Sunday...
