Altered Wooden Spool


Over on the PA blog there is loads going on including the launch of the new GD.  This week it is the turn of Clare Lloyd who invited us to alter a spool, you can see hers here.  Above is my version.


I coloured the spool and wooden cogs with a mix of tango and blood orange fresco paints. I stamped various LP images onto a piece of card, coloured them with Portfolio pastels and cut to size to cover the middle of the spool.

This works just perfectly Sam: I love it! I would never have thought of interpreting that Lynne Perrella image like that, but it looks as if it were made for it! Loving your colour choices too! Great make! Julie Ann xx

I don't know if she is scary or hilarious! But definitely original and creative...

Lucy Edmondson said...

This is fab, Sam! Love how you have deconstructed the LP image and attached it together with springs, no mean feat! And the cogs give a wonderful frilly edge which works really well. Makes my effort look rubbish, lol!!
