Here's a project I created for the Summer Blog Hop. An altered hat! :) I love altered art tonnes and with Summer being the theme for this hop as well as our projects for June, I had to put on my thinking cap to come up with something to share with you lovely readers...It wasn't easy, considering summer tones are more on the brown, red, orange whilst my projects are more on the muted tone dept!

Anyhoots, When I think summer, I think hot! and immediately I thought, I'd need to wear a hat! But I'd want one of style of course I did it the scrapbooking way, some Prima flowers, bling and ribbon to complete the look!

A quick step-by-step:
1) Tie a ribbon around the mound of the hat
2) Start off by adhering the largest flower
3) Continue to layer around the large flower with smaller ones
4) Adhere some blings and other embellishments like lace and such if you fancy

Here's what mine turned out like:
