ABAA - Altered Cutlery

This is my entry for this weeks challenge at ABAA, which this week is altered cutlery.

Still being 10 feet tall after seeing David Essex on Saturday, (see earlier post) Ive designed my altered cutlery with him in mind.

My quote says "Stirring up old memories" which was exactly what he managed to do on saturday.

I used an old mixing spoon that had some damage to it so I didnt like using it any longer for baking.

I used alcohol inks to colour the spoon before added some lovely images of David and some of the titles of his songs.

An old street lamp stamp made an ideal compliment for the song title "Lamplight".

I used a music note punch and some stickles to add a little sparkle and added a couple of stars for "Stardust".

I am over the moon with my spoon, thanks for stopping by my blog.
