Altered Clothes Pegs

Here are some clothes pegs that I altered. I white washed them first using acrylic paints, then sanded them, then popped down some blue and white striped ribbon before finishing off with a blue carnation, using flowers purchased through Wild Orchid Crafts. I love how real their flowers look.

Altered Clothes Peg

Hey folks,
While browsing Google and Pinterest I've come across altered clothes pegs. What a neat idea, to alter clothes pegs!! They make great little gifts, are so handy for pinning notes to your notice board or fridge if you pop some magnetic tape to the back of them and if you dare, you could always hang your washing out using them lol Just think how great your washing would look on the line....hehehehe

I'm in the process of making some at the moment. I've white washed them using acrylic paint and am now waiting for them to dry before altering them further...I'll pop up pics of the finished articles later.

If you fancy making some and would like to be in with the chance of winning a super cool prize, then pop over to PAPER DIGITAL ART AND IMAGESBYKIM (just click on the button below). Once you go there pop over to the group Anything Goes and you'll see my challenge for the month. I've ordered art pads from Lili Of The Valley and oh so cute flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts

Challenge No. 96 - For The Birds

Yay it's that time of the month again, time to take part in Pattie's Creations Design Challenge. I'm so spoiled being part of the design team because Pattie designs some truly amazing digi stamps.

July has been a strange month. It's been so so busy. I've been so busy that I fell out of the loop and almost missed my design team spot...I thought we where still on holiday tut tut tut. I'm so pleased I checked my emails when I did, I'd have been gutted had I missed it.

This week's theme is "For The Birds" and I chose this gorgeous image because I feel peacocks are such regal birds. It's not my first time either to use this image, I used it back in February for a design challenge too.

All of the rules for the challenge can be found through HERE. You'll find Pattie's gorgeous digi stamps through HERE.

The stamp I used is called Peacock Image 1...

Here's the card that I made.

A second blog

Hi everyone, it's been a little while since I updated my blog. I've some exciting news to share. I've set up a second blog, one that will be devoted to all things Foodie. I love cooking and when I opened this blog, it was my intention to add some of my fav recipes but that's not really happened. Yesterday I decided to start a second blog where I can pop in the photos and recipes of the things I enjoy cooking and baking the most. You'll find my second blog over on Niamh's Foodie Thoughts. If you try one of my recipes be sure to leave a comment.
