Altered Eyeglass Collaboration :: Seeing Stars

A while back, I was given the opportunity to join in with several other crafters and artists with a unique objective: use a pair of reading glasses in an altered art project.

If you've been reading my blog for long, you know that I've only dabbled a bit in mixed media and altered art - it's not my usual type of crafting. But...I love a challenge. I wanted to stretch myself and also put my style (which is generally more of a clean look) into the mix.
I received a pair of blue glasses with some light yellow accents, so I stuck with blue and yellow for my main color palette. I added stamping (both with ink and paint) and some die cuts to my project.
 I finished it all off with a handwritten title: seeing stars.
I had so much fun joining in on this collaboration and loved seeing what everyone else came up with. A few of those involved are sharing their projects on their blogs - so be sure to stop by and check out the other projects from: Tina (the one behind the whole idea), Keri, and Susan.

Thanks for stopping by!
