Mixed Media Altered Iron - Old Treasures Autumn Hop

Hi my dear sweet crafty friends!

Something exciting I have for you prepared today! I was so impatiently waiting for today to welcome you in our amazing "Old Treasures" Autumn Youtube Hop, where 15 amazing Artists from all over the world share their projects and tutorials inspired by the "Old Treasures" and Autumn. You don't want to miss it, because girls have done an amazing job and I honestly can't remember seeing so many awesome and unique ideas and projects at one place! And what's even better is that all the projects come with free tutorials on our youtube channels, showing many tips and techniques, to celebrate the beginning of the Autumn Season. But the story doesn't end here either. You can take part in this Hop too and you can win one of the amazing prizes by our generous sponsors. You can find all the information you need at the end of this post.

And now to my project. I had this gorgeous old Iron lying around. It was my grandmas. When she moved to the Elder's home in January this year, my father and I were cleaning her appartment and I took it to alter it once and give it a new life. It was one of the last things I did with my dad. He passed away soon after due to the sudden Aortic Aneurysm. Soon after him my grandma passed away too. It was a hard and devastating year! So this is a special treasure I cherish very deeply. I loved the symbolism of this "Old Treasures" Autumn Hop - giving a new life to something old, so it felt just perfect to alter it. I will be using it as a Paper Weight and it's sitting on my desk now, reminding me every day of two of my dear ones, who passed away too soon.

I hope you'll like it and it will inspire you to give a new life to some old things too.

Here is my video tutorial on my youtube channel. If you watch till the end, an end screen will take you directly to the next stop along the Hop:
