ABAA's Latest Challenge

Completed another one - woohoo!!! Got out of my sick bed, and got a little creative.I actually did 3 pieces of vintage cutlery, and one vintage wood napkin holder( I will show that later).
Patty from Magpie's Nest, http://www.bitze.wordpress.com, is the guest artist, so , of course, I had to give this challenge a try!! Linda and Rosie at ABAA are coming up with some great challenges.
I don't have a DH to bend the cutlery for me - well, I have a DH, but he just had wrist surgery, so bending cutlery one handed doesn't quite work!! So, I did what I could.
One ice tea spoon is waiting in the wings for its paint to dry - when it does, I'll post that pic also.
I decided to see how painting them would work - I kind of like it. These pictures don't really do it justice tho.
The flower fairy has bent tines with tiny flowers on the end, a leftover scrap of paper for her hat,velvet leaf, and her face is an image from Art Chix. I spray painted the fork,and hand painted over the fork's floral design.

The ' butterflies' serving spoon had been flattened and holes drilled by DH prior to his surgery!! The face is another Art Chix image, sculpy butterfly charm,glass beads, vintage faux pearls from a broken necklace, and vintage rhinestone paste adorn the spoon.

Don't forget - 3 more days to enter my Spring Giveaway drawing - don't forget!!!!

  1. Painting the cutlery looks wonderful Pat. These pieces are each so pretty and special! It is really exciting to see everyone's take on the altered cutlery theme! Hope you're feeling all better now, glad you got to create....it's good medicine!

  2. I love the way you've painted these - it really works well. Such pretty colours and embellishments too.

  3. These are such fun pieces! Love that perky green!

  4. Painting the cutlery works really well - and I'm not sure I would have thought of it! Loving what you've done with these and so glad to have you play along!
