Altered spoons

I messed around this weekend making a couple of altered spoons following Nancy Maxwell James instructions from the Artist Classes. They were lots of fun to make and actually are really pretty! I finished mine off a bit different then instructed and used a glaze over the image.
You can find lots of beautiful things here on Nancy's blog :   http://sugarlumpstudios.blogspot.com/
and the artist classes here: http://greenpaper.typepad.com/artist_class/









Also a big huge thanks to Sharon over at Wildflower House for the sunshine award!

Thank you for sharing these--I have so much old silverware here, and thanks for the links. Everytime I come here, Mozart is playing--I love that music. You're probably getting tired of me telling you this too :)

Oh Debby Sweetie...
Thank you so much for stopping by Country Wings in Phoenix. I always get so excited when someone new pops in. I hopped right on over to say hi. I have signed up to follow your blog. I can't wait to see what you share next. I love crafts, but working 10-12 hour days I don't get as much time to create as I would like.

I love these spoons and I am going to give it my best shot. I think they just look so precious and what a clever idea. I am going to go and visit the link @ Nancy James artist classes that you shared with us. I can't wait. How cute in time for Easter. I'll be sure to let you know when I post them so you can see too.

Thank you so much for sharing. I also love your little critter that you won from the OWOH giveaway. I won something too that I will be posting later tonight.

Have a beautiful evening, and thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you will come back soon. Country hugs...Sherry
