I really enjoyed colour matching this image to
the papers  "Blooming Lovely" from
The Paper Boutique (which I got for 2.99 as a club members gift).
 As you can work desk is much
tidier than usual lol
 and she posed so beautifully on my ribbon box :D
The little tag was from a fat quarter pack...
 "waste not want not "
*except I totally want everything crafty ever*
Enjoy :D XXX

Birthday POE stcards


Thank goodness the ladies at 
are on the case!

So after a manic morning I now have 
4 POEstcards :D

 I(not surprisingly) have several collections of 
Poe related digi images....
I used My Craft Studio to create 4 collage pieces
 The kit includes background papers, so I printed one
 of those off and used it to cover my postcard blanks.
 Cut out and glued...
 before adding some verdigris and black embossing powder
around the edges.
 A quick blast of satin varnish and a few 
black peel offs and done :D
The quotes are also from the digi kit...
 "I became insane with long intervals of horrible Sanity"
 "I felt I breathed an atmosphere of Sorrow"
 " We loved with a love that was more than Love"
" And this maiden she lived with no other thought
than to love and be loved by me"

Box of Junk

We all hoard "junk" or as we call it
"treasure" lol
So what better way to use it up than by making a 
"Treasure box"
*inspired by another Ina Solsbery vid*

I kept this old box because my youngest had "decorated" it...
 a layer of crumpled tissue for texture...
 White gesso....
 stuff I would never have put together in a million years
on any other project lol...
 more gesso and paint....
 I nearly left it at this point as it looked quite creepy,
 but I was determined to try the faux tarnished metal look
 So after many drippings and dryings...
 adding paints and wiping aways...
 I now have a box to treasure :D
See I knew they would all come in useful one day...

Enjoy :D XXX
