"Hi, I'm Elly and I've joined the crafting world as I've found a video about scrapbooking in April 2010. I asked a hobby shop owner a lot questions and borrowed my first heat embossing tool. I uploaded my first video to YouTube two month later. A few mini books and videos later, I was already addicted to mixed media because I detected the art of Michael DeMeng. Another door opened, as I found Andy Skinner and after my first online workshop with him, I was infected with acrylic paint and all the possibilities with altered art in vintage and steampunk style. Mixed Media has unlimited possibilities, creating art with whatever I can get my hands on."
"Every day is a new beginning for me. As a lover of altered art, I want to give discarded objects a new life, too. In this case I've altered an old CD and made a clock.
I've glued some vintage LaBlanche papers to the CD's and used paper doilys behind. The cyphers on the main clock are cut outs with epoxy stickers on top and I've assembled a clock mechanism from behind.
The professor is stamped with StazOn on acetate and painted with acrylic paint on the back. The doilies had a treatment with Tattered Angels Chalkboard *orchid* and Glimmer Glaze *saffron*."
