Challenge 50 Artful Times

Hello to you all and I must apologise for not being a regular visitor to all the wonderful blogs  I follow, but I have just stated a new job, it's supposed to be part time ! but I have been offered extra shifts and the injection of extra money is most welcome

Now back to the challenge in hand it's ANYTHING GOES

For this I have some more things to show I have made for the Charity shop window

A pine wall hanging painted with pink blue and pale green, a little bit of bead trim and some butterflies, I've kept it simple so it will have mass appeal and hopefully sell

Also a cushion and some draw string bags

Having never made a heart shaped cushion before, I learnt what looks a good shape in paper doesn't make a nice shape when sewn ! hence the ribbon pulling the two sides to sides together

Now pop over to Artful Times and see what amazing things Neet and Chrissie have come up with

Challenge 49 at Artful Times

Hello and a Happy all be it very wet Valentines Day to one and all

At Artful Times we are challenge you so make or decorate a box, so a good excuse to eat those choky's if you were lucky enough to receive some.

My little box came from the charity shop  and has gone back to the shop for there Valentines window display.

First I painted it pink, then stamped with a script in grey which shows nicely through the transparency, for the sides I've added stickles to some recycled metal butterflies also from the charity shop and added some die cuts which have been embossed with a white glitter powder

Neet and Chrissie and I look forward to seeing what you do with your boxes
