I'M ON THE COVER AND WOYWW

Hello everyone!!  Happy WOYWW!  Please visit our awesome hostess Julia for all the details!!

BUT FIRST.....(drum roll please)

My work is on the cover of  the latest Altered Arts Magazine!!!!!
I made the map and the treasure chest!  The map was a super fun mixed media project.  I printed out  2 maps, colored them in and cut apart one of them to layer upon the other.  On the map I kept whole, I wrinkled it up and re-straightened.  I used pastels and inks, and I used modeling paste to make the elevations on the map.  Layering the other pieces made even more dimension.  Finally, I burned pieces of the map to make it look even older.  I placed the map inside of a wood box.  I also altered a treasure chest I bought at the party store and staged the scene with pirate coins, costume jewelry from my collection, faux gems and lace!  I was soooo excited to get the news I was on the cover.  This is amazing and I can't say thank you enough to Altered Arts Magazine!!!


NOW FOR THE PARTY!!!!
I am decorating a white pumpkin from the craft store.  I am using faux leaves and I have some jewels and squash I will add too.  Hopefully, It will be done by the next party.  I figure I can keep it as a centerpiece on the table through Thanksgiving.

Thank you so much for visiting!!!  I always reply to every comment I get, and I also try to get to as many other party goers as I can!!  Have fun!!

  22. WOO HOO!!! Congrats on getting published and getting it published on the front of the magazine. I just finished my pumpkin and like you I want it to sit out throughout the Thanksgiving holiday. It too much effort to do Halloween and then Thanksgiving so I am geared for Fall Holiday now. Thanks for sharing and have a great week. Sorry I am so late getting around but life calls. Thanks for visiting my blog. Vickie #71
