Oriental Dreams Part 2


As if the weekly challenge and the monthly art doll swap wasn't enough to keep us all occupied Margaret thought we should do another challenge. Both Margaret and I wanted to do something altered but the problem is the group is international and postage and packing might be a difficult (and expensive) problem for large or bulky or fragile items.
I was the host for the first 'Altered Swap' and I chose to challenge everyone on the group to alter a CD. I selected the theme of Oriental and here is my completed CD.
I love this sparkly hand made backing paper. I think the colour is striking and set this as the base for my colour scheme. I stamped and embossed the images in silver onto blue vellum which I then mounted on thin card to give them a bit more body. Holes drilled in the top and the bottom for the fibres and I also stamped and embossed a flower image onto the back of the sparkly paper (the plain side) and hung this from the bottom fibres. The ric rac braid and the 'dream' chipboard sticker carried on the colour scheme. I added a glass flower to the bottom (unfortunately this hasn't shown up too well on the photo!) and some fibres round the outside edge of the CD. I enjoyed doing this so may make another one as the closing date for entries isn't for another 3 weeks!
The theme of Altered CD's is also the challenge on Saturday Workout.
