Altered Art - Dreams

Hi, hope you've all had a good bank holiday weekend.
I loved last weeks Try it on Tuesday scraplings challenge and will definately be using up more of my offcuts in this way.
Well can you believe it? It's the last day of May already and as it's a Tuesday it's time for another Try it on Tuesday challenge.
 It's Altered Art week with the theme of Dreams which was chosen by our very talented Georgina.

I've altered a cheese box and created a dream catcher.

I flattened out the lid and base of the box by cutting into the edges, then cut appertures using nesties and the cuttlebug. I painted the base and lid using Smooch inks. I cut 2 frames for around the appertures again using nesties and the bug.  I cut card the same depth as the box then reassembled the box base sticking it to the card. I then stuck the lid over the base. To attach the cord I made holes around the edge and threaded it through then stuck down with tape and covered the edge with ribbon to hide the fixings. Used wire to attach the feathers and the acetate stamped image of the girl in the moon which I had coloured using glitter.

Well if you fancy a bit of altering but need some inspiration why not pop over to the TioT challenge blog and check out the fantastic ideas the teamies have come up with. They are amazing.
Don't forget the challenge is sponsored by The Craft Barn this week so leave a link in your post if you decide to join us that way you will be entered into the random draw.

Happy crafting
