Stir it up!

This altered spoon is for a swap on the Lots to Do forum, hosted by Ang C. My swapee is Ellen so I hope she likes it!!!



The ivy is from a spray I brought from Ebay with the idea of making a christmas swag (about 5 years ago lol) I covered the spoon with pva then pasted pages of an old book onto it. The quote is from Danielle Steel (or Barbara Taylor Bradford - one of them anyway lol) It says "If you believe in a fairy tale you can face the future"


I stamped the image onto tissue paper and pva'd it onto the spoon bit. I love my spoon, hope Ellen does too!

:o)
