I "altered" something...

Alright, I'll be the first to say that I'm not much into "altering" things. Ok, I'm not into it at All...well, at least I wasn't.
However, my dear friend Adrienne has informed me that I have now joined hands with other alterers :-). I "accidentally" altered a wooden letter the other day. Not even knowing that's what I was doing. I thought I was just painting the darned thing. But Adrienne says that if I change something from its original state, that makes it altered. So, there you have it!!! And believe me she should know. The lady had "altered" a frying pan for goodness sakes!!

Ok, here's my altered "D". Again, I thought I was just painting the unfinished letter to hang in my scrap space. I got the letter for $1 at Walmart, the Metallic Plum paint from Michaels for $.98 and 12 foam brushes for $1. The ribbon...I THINK I already had that, but I'm not sure. Anyways, I just started painting. And I love the way it came out. I may even go back and get the "A, W & N" too. (Good thing I don't have a long name). I told Adrienne about it and she just HAD to see it. That in itself scares me...Nothing personal. She's just really good at what she does and I thought she'd laugh at my little project. BUT, she loved it. She even inquired about the supplies.

Alright, alright, enough talking (how much can one say about a painted...err, ALTERED letter anyway?) Here it is. Now I've just gotta find some place to hang it :-).



Thanks Adrienne, you ROCK!!!
