Artful Times Challenge. A mode of transport

I was going to make another 'man' card, but don't really need one at the moment. I used an already coloured tag that I had made previously, and stuck on stamped images of cars. I thought it looked a bit bare so made some little tags to add on.

Altered spectacle case

I have to admit that this sat on my desk for several months before I managed to come up with  an idea. It was the  fact that everyone else had done theirs, that spurred me on.
I painted the case inside and out with acrylic paint, and when this was dry I glued some shells in the bottom bit, and fibers for seaweed, and a couple of seahorses in the top. I added some diamond glaze in the bottom so that it looked wet. The outside of the case I painted with a metallic turquoise, and before it goes to my swap partner, I'll glaze it to stop the paint chipping off.

Fabric birdhouse book M, N & O

I tried to do something a bit different for these, and get away from the scene type ones I had made for some of the other birds.

Artful Times challenge---I do like to be beside the Seaside

This is a bit of a quickie as I seem to be rushing around like a mad thing. I love doing seaside themes and have an altered spectacles case on the go on the same theme. Will probably put that one on as well (when it's dry)
