Altered guitar, laying lino and a couple of ATC books with keys (awfully big art adventure keys).


my sons are learning to play guitar so we wanted to make it easier for them..My husband chopped up a guitar and voila my sons are now finding it easier to play the electric guitar without the curves in the way!! Now what can I make with those chopped up guitar curves..watch this space.

Today after our morning bike ride I made a couple of little ATC books. One contains a variety of painted papers whilst the other contains fabric scraps for making ATCs. I have added little keys to each of the books.(they are made using old bike inner tubes cut up with my cuttlebug). Over at Awfully Big Art Adventure the challenge is keys..

I was very pleased today as my first attempt at putting down bathroom lino was a great success with no gaps showing anywhere ..it now looks really lovely with a nice blue mosaic silvery pattern and I am so pleased as I was totally fed up with the bathroom floor looking a mess so decided to lay the lino myself!

I think you must get loads of those smarty points Rosie was promising for such an inventive key make, I reckon at least 50 smarty points seeing as it is also recycling and your carbon footprint is very small for this challenge! LOL
Fab ATC's and love the jump ring holding them together.
Happy Crafting Lorraine!
