Our second theme is Alter It. The objective is to take any object that is NOT a bag and turn it into one. Boxes, pudding cups, bottles, mint tins, plaques...anything you can think of. The finished product can be decorative or functional but should clearly look like a bag.
I had a look around to see what I could find to alter and came across a few egg boxes. I left the bottom of the box as it was so the origin of my little box bag was obvious.
I put a little 'jewel' on the 'clasp'
I painted it with Gesso then Dylusions acrylic paints and sprayed with Dylusions Ink sprays.
When I had finished painting I realised that it reminded me of the colours of a Monet Water Lily painting (a style I like very much), so I added the large flowers to represent the waterlilies and a variety of beads for the handle.
We had a delivery of calves last Sunday, this weekend was the first chance I had to take some photographs. Mr Cutie above is a Charolais cross (all crossed with dairy cows) which is what gives him is lovely pale coat.
This one is a British Blue cross (they used to be called Belgian Blues), not so cute but looking bright. He was tucking into some nice hay when I disturbed him.

I haven't shared this on my blog yet, maybe I wanted to hug my news to myself for a little longer. Or maybe it is because this news does not just affect me. However, as soon as I saw the prompt for this week's Sunday Creative I knew that it was time to share my new grandson with the world!
