Morning or is it afternoon. I'm having a real dopey Dora day today and got caught still in my jim jams by the delivery man who didn't call early!! I must send Birthday wishes to one of my lovely friends Sarah up in Shropshire who's @£!! today. Have a great day.
I know its December but I'd received five each of both March Time to Flourish papers from the lovely Sandra at Jones Crafts to design the Make and Take for the sessions we'll be running on the Jones Crafts stands at the UK Craft Trade Show in February. Once I'd made that little project I had some papers left over to play with, and this is what emerged from my crafty table :-)
I love making shadow boxes and Graphic 45 papers are so easy to cut up for decoupage and layering.
Rather than painting the Artemio frame I used Seedless preserves Distress ink to cover the outer surfaces and then added the purple border around the rim die cut from purple patterns and solids using the Alterations Holly, Beaded and Snowflake Decorative Strip. Then it was back to the scissors to cut out all the elements for the centre of the frame. I set them all on the purple floral background and loved how they layered and pop out of the frame. Tip from me:- Use offcuts of chipboard cut into 1/4" squares to add dimension to your project rather than foam tape. It's much cheaper too
