Projects: Altered

What do you get when you cross a clearanced candle holder and Ranger's alcohol inks?

A Cell Phone Holder!

I love going thru Target and looking at all the clearance items on the various end-caps. Just as I mentioned to the Moms and More ladies a couple of weeks ago, I look for inexpensive items that I can alter and then "gift". This time the gift is for me. When I'm in the basement or especially my office --I mean my Castle, I keep my cell phone in this dish, so that I don't have to hunt for it when it rings. My girls and I are on a family plan where we can talk to each other for free so they call me on it instead of the house phone. There isn't anything more frustrating to me than to hear the phone, and not be able to find it in time.

I accomplished this work of art, by dripping the ink into the glass and allowing it to roll around and puddle with the other colors. I love watching the ink blend and react and reactivate what is already there.

On a personal note: I'm trying to get that surgery thing going again. I went to the Dr. today and we've started the tests. --Ultrasound, blood work, etc. I'm also having heart issues so I have to see a Cardiologist too. I sure hope and pray that the Cardiologist can figure out (quickly) and treat what's wrong. That's tomorrow.
Oh, but let me tell you, I knew I was going to like this doctor before I met her. The website, the wall paper, the walls, the chairs, all the assistants scrubs --are the same color.... guess what color??? (smile)
