Altered art with Times Nouveau

I hope you enjoyed the bank holiday break.  Old went away so Harry and I had the house to ourselves to get up to what ever we wanted lol!!!  Today it's back to the craft room to work on a Precious Memories album I've had in my head for a couple of weeks.  H has gone back to college and Ols headed off to work the late shift so I've got a few hours to think things through, cut, write and film as I go before they return. Time goes soon quickly these days ! 
Graphic 45 are sharing projects by Gini and myself over on their blog today. I've gone for a more masculine look for this one and came up with a desk tidy and drawer combination with rolled paper feet. Cut out from chipboard sheets, altered in paint and papers from the gorgeous Times Nouveau papers listed below it was sitting pretty on my craft table when Oli's lovely friend Zac spotted it, really liked it and grinned like a Cheshire cat when I said he could have it.  Now it's sitting pretty on his desk and being used too :-) There's a full supply list below
