I have seen some altered over time and always wanted to alter some. So the time came that i just had to do it myself. So why not do this as a swap on my ATC & Mixed Media Yahoo Group, I was on a roll and decided to make everyone that was contributing to the swap an extra spoon. I used heaps of buttons that I had in tins from not only my grandmother but my mother as well. I threaded the buttons with a combination of beads and wrapped this around the handles of the spoons. I used alcohol inks undiluted on the spoons and mixed the colours up to create a real intense colour. Added an image, placed some Microbeads and/or Golden Garnet Gels mixed with real gemstone chips at the bottom. Drilled some holes at the top of the spoon to thread some ribbon through to hang.
