Bright and Bold Altered Hoop by Grace

Hello all! Grace back with another DT project with the February kit.

An altered hoop was something I’d never done before, so I watched plenty of process videos on YouTube before I started. At first I couldn’t decide what side of the hoop I wanted to alter, so as I began working on the hoop I added the base elements such as gesso and crackle paste to both sides in the hope that I would eventually decide which side I was going for… that didn’t happen, so I ended up with a double sided hoop!


And now I love the fact that it’s double sided! It’s hanging on a lamp in my craft room and I can spin it round to have the side I might prefer to see that day (or just have fun spinning it over and over :P).

As always, I have done a process video on my YouTube channel. It’s slightly longer than normal due to the double sided-ness of the project but you hope you enjoy it!


Here are some links to products I used that are not in the kit but that you can buy from the store:

Lindy’s Stamp Gang Spray in Tibetan Poppy Teal
Heidi Swapp Colour Shine in Pink

Finnabair Art Basics 3D Gloss Gel

And I’ll finish with some close ups. I’m really loving the mix of yellow, pink, and blue, in this project. Not colours I would necessarily put together but they really work well here to fit in with this month’s bold and colourful theme.
