3 things to show

some projects to show you that I did over the holidays, and only now I have got round to putting them up. the first project is a wedding memory box, again a commissioned piece. This took me some time to get my head round due to the theme being, Turkish and bright colours. After a little research on Moroccan style wedding cakes I came up with this. I used a papertrey ink patterned cutting die as my background, dusty attic Moroccan lamps that Lou Collins gave me, and create paper restoration kit used to make the flowers. Really pleased with the result

this shadow box was made on my weekend away with my friend Emma and the scrapettes. I believe the box was from QD which had a glass lid. so I took off the lid. Painted with a blue acrylic paint, then crackled, added some white on the top and then distressed the edges with distress ink. I used some basic grey wisteria paper, prima resin Lou Collins gave me, flowers some of which were coloured with dylusions ink, papertrey ink and basic grey stamps, book pate and metal key plate, little glass bottle with shells in, chipboard butterfly, and a sizzix and technique Tuesday die.
I still have 2 niches to fill so again not totally complete.


lastly a bramford challenge, using a matchbox. JOFY stamps, paperartsy fresco paints, Martha Stewart butterfly punch and a die cut gate from memory box
