Tando Creative challenge ~ Alter It!

I'm a happy bunny! I've had some 'me' time this afternoon.. while the boys played happily (if you believe that!!!!) hehe.. every month I head over to Tando Creative challenge blog to see what the fabulous inspirational Design Team have been up to.. and every month I just seem to run out of time and forget to join in the fun! 

Not this time! I'm speeding in and it's only the 12th! (I am secretly heart-broken not to be meeting up with some of the fabulous DT in a couple of weeks, but wish them all a fabulous weekend, there's always next time!)

I've altered a book I made using the BIA years ago.. (I went through a phase of making quite a few books when my BIA was shiney and new... so the book is nice and empty inside just waiting to be filled up!) The background paper was ideal for what I had in mind.. here is my altered book..

I was thrilled with how well the little house took the inks that I used.. 

I removed the largest ♥ and used it as a door knob on the little house!

I also removed the little hearts and used them for flowers..

I really, really enjoyed this challenge, thank you Joanne and Kaz! Can't wait to see more inspiration from the Team this month.. 

Thanks for calling and leaving a comment if you get the chance. Happy creating, Gez xx

  10. Hey Gez, I think great minds think alike, I was just browsing your wonderful blog and happened upon your Tando Creative challenge - alter it! You have heart flowers and I did a little canvas a few weeks ago and I did the same thing. We must be on the same wavelength. I'm really enjoying looking at your lovely works of art. Michelle x
