the crop challege and a day crafting

each month a group of us set ourselves a challenge to make a piece of altered art. The last couple of months carol has given us items to alter, jenga pieces, a domino and a puzzle piece. So this month i gave everyone a 2 inch bottle cap And this is what i have come up with. I don't think its quite finished. The small frame is painted in fresco guacamole, crackle and snow white fresco paint. The crackle gives it a shabby chic look. I also painted my maya rd chipboard dress form and wings in the same way. The text on the frame is a Tim Holtz stamp, the button and saying are from papertrey ink stamp set.
I also attended crop just outside woodbridge today and i enjoyed it. The hall was a really good size so there was plenty of room to spread out and all the girls were very welcoming. I got a page layout done and spent time on this bottle cap piece.
