Hello my crafty friends. I am soooo going to enjoy this week as I am on annual leave. Hubby, alas, is not BUT I won't let that stop me. I have some crafty plans and the garden/field needs attention so no chance of being idle!!
To kick off, I have a bit of an experiment to share. I have looked on in awe at the fabulous other crafty stuff that is so lovingly showcased and thought I would have a go at decorating a wooden heart that has been in my "have a go at" pile for some time.
To begin with I sanded off the varnish to give a key for the paste that I made using Pamellia's recipe, I used the "sticky" recipe so that the glamour dust would adhere...and it did!! Big tick there then!!
Then it was merely a case of deciding just what to do with it. My colleague is retiring soon (after 30 years!!) and I wanted to make her a keepsake so went with an inspirational quote in the form of a freebie stamp. As you can see, more of my flowers have been used together with some cheesecloth and ribbon. The frantage got an outing and a long forgotten Cheery Lynn die provided the foliage.
