Money Box and Big Brother Update

My friend Cubby, an accomplished altered artist, challenged me to come up with a piece of art which thought outside the box so I'm hoping that this fits the brief.

I give you Money box, a box covered entirely in bank notes, there's a hole in the top which you can sort of see where the coin is sticking out, there's also coins in the bottom of the box, I achieved this by covering a box with old foreign currency and then distressing with a nail file and tim holtz ink pads, I added the slot for the coins and then added those with some diamond glaze, I love this because it's different.

In other news, I see Shabaz left the Big Brother house, probably for the best I would say considering he was slightly bonkers and probably went out of the BB door and straight into a very long session of therapy, quite frankly how they let someone in the house who then was heard to say on camera that he had come to die in the house and kill himself on camera I'll just never know.

It makes you wonder how the dynamics of the house will now change and who will be the next one to become the house scapegoat, I'll tell you one thing dear reader, I think they should all be very careful with Richard, because boy does that Cat have some sharp nails! Posted by Picasa

I am so glad that looon is gone. I couldn't stand him. I love Richard, and would love to see how he manipulates his way thru this house!!! But i think Glyn and Dawn will be on the chopping block this week, or quite possibly maybe all that didn't make it into the brotherhood???? but Glyn is boring he needs to go.

Love the money box, very fabulous!!!

Gosh, I dunno about being an accomplished altered artist - a fledgling altered artist I'd say, just a teeny-eeny-weeny one.

Blimey, I think I should have watched BB - did they actually broadcast him saying that? I guess they subsequently hauled him out then because they haven't started the evictions yet have they?

In one way you wonder what on earth they are all going to have to squabble about now that he is gone... I would have thought Ch. 4 would have tried their hardest to keep him in as love him or hate him Shabaz is great for the viewing figures with all his escapades! He has to have been the weirdest contestant so far... and probably not one many people would want to live with or next door to! Can you imagine the drama... LOL

Oh well, I am not finding any of them that compelling to watch yet, but this is the way it is every year... takes me a few weeks to get into it. ;o)
