This year I entered the European Scrap Battle in cards and alter. Earlier I published all my cards in one post. I thought of doing the same in alter. Alter for me has always been about altering something. In the European Scrap Battle alter was a mixture of everything - 3D creations, alterations, Mixed Media and a mixture of styles.
The task for this challenge was monochromatic. I made a small glitter village and mounted lights in all the houses and in the light pole. There was really good competition in the semi-finals, and I did not go on to the final.
The task for the semi-finals was "Music genre".
The box is made from scratch of old cardboard.
For round four I made a Japanese paper lantern. The task was flowers.
All the flowers are handmade with left over papers. The template is my own.
The template has been published in the magazine "Ett trykk" and can also be found here.
The task was no black or white. This was a difficult task. I got inspired by the 60s and all the colours. I made a pink paper Cadillac. The car has rolling wheels.
The task was to describe the art form with one word. For me alter is all about invention.
I made a working windmill made from two computer fans.
You can find the tutorial video from You-tube in the blog post.
Straight to round 2
