Good Morning Crafters,
I hope this finds you all well and happy. This is a very quick post this morning as I have a very busy day - we go to the airport tonight after we close the shop and fly on holiday tomorrow for 8 days!!!!
Turkey here we come!
But, before that .................... calm ..............
I would like to show you my project for Brenda's excellent challenge this week for Allsorts (allsortschallenge.blogspot.com)
I thought this project that I did in a class this week would make a super gift.
I have used a Spellbinder shape MDF plaque (we sell lots of these shapes in the shop and they have become really popular and so very reasonable)
I have crackled the background using Sheena's crackle technique with acrylic paint on the first layer, a layer of PVA glue and magnolia emulsion on the top. To make it look even more distressed I have used Vintage Photo distress ink around the edges.
The decoupage that I have used is from the Jayne Shasky CD rom from the lovely Joanna Sheen which I sprayed with Spray and Shine from Crafters Companion - it finishes a decoupage off really nicely.
The sentiment is also from the CD rom from the Calligraphy section and again I have edged it with VP.
The foliage that was added to the edges is from one of the new Spellbinder sets - Fall Leaves. I am really loving this one such a variety of leaves to use on so many projects.
Thankyou to our lovely sponsors this week:
As always pop over to the Allsorts Challenge blog and have a peep at the gorgeous gift ideas that the girls and made - fabulous work this week and lots of ideas for giving crafty goodies for Christmas.
Must dash now I have lots to do before I can set off this evening.
I won't be around next week to post for Allsorts but please pop by the week after and I will fill you in on our holiday too!!
Bye for now and enjoy a lovely Bank Holiday Weekend,
