This is a project I worked on at the weekend. It was an old black plastic mirror I bought many years ago. The flowers are from a bouquet my eldest daughter bought me for Mothers’ Day a few years ago. They were in a beautiful tall black vase up until about three months ago when my dogs decided to beat each other to the front door and knocked it flying. I decided I would make my mirror sort of shabby chic. So I gessoed it with acrylic gesso, and gave it three coats of white acrylic paint. I hot glued the flowers to the frame, but the Gerberas were kind of top heavy so I had to open up the frame from the back and wire them on to it, which has done the trick. Now it hangs back in my hall in its original position but brightens up my entrance hall. I am rather pleased how it turned out as this is the first time I have done any large pieces. I hope you like it and thank you for stopping by.
This is a little album that I picked up from lisa the snazzycrafter on You Tube last night. It is made from cardstock and the front and back covers are made from acetate. The pages are made from cardstock cut 6″ x 8″ and scored at 1″, 2″ and 3″ I noticed when I was folding them up that I had to take a little shim of the 1″ fold to make them fold under so that they wouldn’t bend the cardstock out of shape. It is a delightful little album and takes 6×6″ papers beautifully if you remember to apply them before you punch your holes for the rings. If you needed a present in a hurry you could make this up in no time. Beautiful! Thank you for stopping by.
This is a little album I made out of scalloped cards that I had left over from last christmas. Because the cover paper has buttons all over I made the theme for the tags about sewing. Each tag has something to do with sewing a mannequin, scissors, neddle and thread, etc. The photo mats are covered with a 6×6 paper mat that I got free in a magazine, and the little journals are free downloads from sweetlyscrapped.blogspot.com. Thank you for stopping by.
