yogi altered matchboxes
Over at the milliande art community Palma is again hosting an altered matchbox swap with the theme this time of symbols. I have been drinking yogi licorice tea lately which is delicious and comes in a lovely box with little quotes on each teabag! So I have used these little quotes along with some altered mah-jong tiles, metal diecut wings, beads, sequins etc to make these little shrines. I have just joined the Gary Reef site Loving Mixed Media and he is also having an altered matchbox challenge so be sure to check out both of these excellent art communities.
I had tidied away my large art table as one of my sons was having a birthday party but decided I couldnt live without it! so got it out of the shed and my sons immediately started to paint again

We have had a mixture of torrential rain and sun so typical British summertime! But at least its good for the sunflowers as ours are getting quite tall nownot in flower yet though
