Arty girlz challenge 40 ''Nature'', created by hand challenge ''Altered''

For this weeks Arty Girlz challenge i decided to enter a decorated a tin, which also fits the altered theme for created by hand. This is a simple round tin you can buy from any good craft shop. The base is primed and takes alcohol inks so easily and looks lovely. Tho the ink can scratch very easily a fixative like glossy accents glaze or if you have it an acrylic paint fixative that you would spray on a canvas painting. No idea what i am going to fill it with yet. I made this tin at Samuel Taylors, I choose the colours and paper and ribbon used. The tin shape was chosen for me.

I Dare Challenge - Sherry

On a forum i entered an ''I Dare'' swap. The idea behind it is you are in a group of 5 people and you dare the 4 others to do something out of their comfort zone, within reason, you don't want to dare someone and make them spend lots of money. My Dare from Sherry was to decorate a house for her, the other 3 will do the same and she is going to make a wall hanging from it for her craft room. This is what i came up with, hope she likes it.

Faux Sea Glass Pendant

Let me first of all say, the picture does not do these justice at all. They are see through and held up to the light look totally amazing but make an awful photo :(
You need ink, memory glass frosted or not up to you, UTEE, perfect pearls and a whole lot of patience. I put them into memory frames that's also optional.
