Creative Every Day - Altered Altoids Tin
I made this little piece today in response to the Creative Every Day challenge to use words and contemplation on the word "Dream".
I used a piece of blue wool felt for the base. I needle felted the amorphous design from the shed blue/grey wool from my big garter stitch shawl and a bit of the hand dyed merino that I purchased at the Sew Expo earlier this month.
I then took a piece of paper and hand wrote the word "dream" and coloured the paper with coloured pencils. I took a plastic plaque and place the word under it and then I attached the plaque with some rock crystal beads and sterling head pins.
I glue the plastic dragonfly on to the needle felted piece and glue that to the lid of the Altoid's tin and wallah.
This piece isn't quite finished as I am, wait for it, waiting for the glue to dry. After this step dries, I will then cover the sides of the lid and pretty it up some more before it is complete.
Again, I am sorry for the craptastic pictures.
