Opps it's a mirror

Ever had one of those days when you just watch something fall to the floor well that's what happened to the glass of this frame, but all is not lost as I found I  had a mirror tile that fitted phew !!!

I've used mulberry papers I've had for ages, and stamped on some of them,  tore it into pieces and stuck it the frame very simple I know but love how it turned out and finished with a few coats of vanish which you cant see in the photo but it does enhance the blending of the papers

Craft-room Challenge 58

My second and final piece as a guest designer for the craft-room challenge, which is to use something new.
I  have used Glimering Hope which I  bought from the sadly missed Happy Daze and the arch from aperture set 1 from Stamps away,  I used this on my homemade gelli plate (one day I'll treat myself to a proper one as I love making mono prints) I have then sketched around the arch with a pen and used distress picket fence through a very old fiskar stencil and added the word Hope with some punched out butterflies.
I would also like to add my card to the Allsorts challenge which is also used your new stash

It's been a pleasure visiting your blogs
Thank you Craft-room challenge

2 ATC's

Gosh 2 posts in 2 days so unlike me lol but saw the challenge at Fun with ATC's was to use die cuts and with Cathryn's  amazing twinchies at Artful Times still fresh in my mind I set to just randomly sticking on die cut flowers gesso the whole lot and sprayed with dylusion inks and finished off with some metallic waxes

Then I found one I hadn't blogged think my brain was else where ha ha

A shaving foam background with the umbrella man cut from 2 different mono prints and a quote which fits nicely into the challenge at Country View which is quotes
 I forgot to say the Author is unknown but the stamp is one of Tim Holtz
Phew need a rest now
Take care all and hope you've had a brill weekend

summer for OOAH

Hello hello hello and welcome to Annie, that makes 99 followers :)
Seems ages since I have made something for a challenge and I see the lovely ladies at OOAH have a summer challenge and inspiration suddenly hit at about 10.30 last night with an "I wonder" I'm not sure if I have seen it done before as who knows what we absorb when blog hopping.
I've striped the top off of some corrugated card and painted it white I then inked up my embossing folder and run it through the big shot yeah it work ! what I mean is I got the result I was hoping for, which was creating a depressed printed image whist still leaving the texture of the of the corrugated card, then added some soft subtle inks to create a soft romantic feel of summer. I liked it so much I didn't to overload it so rooted about in my polymer clay bits box and added the bird and flowers .

I'm pleased with it though not with the photos :(
Hope you like to too and thanks for popping by :)

Could do better !

Yes I think we crafters could make a better job of creating a cabinet of curio's than this one I saw in a museum on a mini break the OH and I took to Bath.
Just think of the fun a group of crafting friends could have over a  weekend. What say you ? :)

The rest of the museum was wonderful with interesting displays and a theme of eye ball  photographs dotted around .
We had a lovely time and saw all the usual sights though I didn't drag Keith around the Fashion museum
Thank you for popping by :)

Craft-room Bingo Challenge

View BINGO.png in slide show
It's wonderful to have been asked to be a guest at Craft-Room Challenge for August
I have managed to avoid doing a bingo challenge up till now, so a first for me.
I have gone for butterfly, mask and lace
I have used the same prima mask for  my background and foreground with inks and paints, the blue butterfly had been triple embossed and stamped into and just to finish it off a tiny piece of lace has been tucked behind on of the squares.
Their sponsors for this month are Sweet Poppy stencils
