... as Alice said.
The astute ones amongst you will have noticed my tweet over on the right there from last night, which says "There is a naked peg on my desk and it's looking at me funny".
Indeed there is, and indeed IT is.
Well, over on UKSTampers we've got a new swap/challenge - to make an Altered Peg.
And thus there is a naked peg on my desk. It's looking at me funny - challenging me, perhaps even taunting me in a kind of "come an' 'ave a go if yer fink yer 'ard enough" way. It oozes malevolence.
You see to me, rightly or wrongly, altering something should really change the very nature of it. I've surfed, and seen many an altered peg that is merely coated in paint, sanded back, and then maybe some pretty decorative paper is glued on and then sanded to distress it. Not that there's anything wrong with that, I hasten to add - done correctly it's very tasteful and attractive.
But this peg is daring me to seriously do something with it.
I only hope I can rise to the challenge....
After all, it's just a peg!
