One of my latest projects, altered mouse traps. Thanks to TG from Art for the Creative Mind, who comes up with all these interesting swaps.

Basically, I took two mouse traps, got rid of some of the hardware (the parts that you use to set the trap to kill mode) and painted them with Lumiere paint in a purple color - and those who know me will know why I don't list the actual name of the paint. Because I don't remember it.

After painting it, I just attached some really cool flower and bird's nests to the top, emu feathers to the bottom, and then on top of those I glued bird images from an Altered Pages collage sheet, and the words from a sticker collection (also available at Altered Pages).  Some pretty fibers at the top and voila! Altered mouse traps.
