Altered Mousetraps

I'm in an altered mousetrap swap.  It was a bit difficult to wrap my head around this concept but I came up a couple pieces.  Some of the hardware was removed from the traps and then I painted them with black gesso.

I titled this one "Mouseketeer Mona."  I gave Mona  a Minnie Mouse hat.  Added a miniature mouse trap  from my stash. I added 2 cat buttons and a tiny mouse button.  I also added a cat charm.

I titled this one "Bird Song" after the papers I used from the Graphic 45 Bird Song paper pack.  The lanterns are from the Paper Dreams Factory.

Hope you like my artsy traps.    Don't forget to vote today.  Paulette                                                        


  1. These are fabulous. When you told me about the swap, I wondered what you would do. Cool challenge idea and awesome results. Mona just cracks me up with the ears, cats, and tiny mousetrap. The birdsong one is lovely. Who knew a mousetrap could be so elegant. Leave it to you to build a better mousetrap :)
