Both Images by Rick St. Dennis
This is my entry for the Smeared and Smudged blog hop today. If you like things to be somewhat quirky then please hop around... you never know what you might find! The remit was to upcycle an object...
The list of participants is on the right sidebar, just down a little way. I have a problem with my eyes and the bloghop has a flashing image.
We haven't done this one in a while, and since we're giving such advance notice we really want you to pull out all the stops!...your challenge: ALTER A FOUND OBJECT.
No cards or scrapbook pages allowed, your item must be 3-D and must have started out as something you found at a thrift store, on the side of the road, in the back of your closet, etc. Show us how you can truly change up that ugly old lamp, or re-cover that forgotten recipe book, the possibilities are endless! Also, don't forget the S&S rule that is has to be stamped somewhere (digi stamps are fine) – we love when you use Smeared Ink stamps, but it is NOT a requirement.
The lamp is very old, I wanted to decorate it for when we used to go to music festivals but didn't know how. It was quite funny when I started this project... my husband said I should dust the lamp before I do anything with it. NO NO NO.... that dust is old - it stays!
The images have been printed onto neenah and coloured with promarkers. They were then scanned and printed onto glossy photo paper. The little bottle of 'absinthe' is green food colouring. The warning has been made in mcs, the rest is just bits and bobs.
