Alter It Monthly are a new challenge blog which I came across quite by chance (as you do).  I am a beginner at Altered Art and thought why not join in!!
So here is my very first post, my very first altered matchbox on my very new blog :)
I love to beachcomb and  I always come away with a pocket full of shells and bits and pieces, so I thought I would make a place to keep my Seaside Treasures.  Yes that is real sand including bits of seaweed inside the shell at the back which was in the bag with the shells.  Hope you like my efforts.
Looking forward to the next challenge "Tin Pan Ally".  I have my tin at the ready just need some inspiration
and off we go again.

Bye for now
