Love Everyday.

Hi and welcome to my crafty haven. I hope you have had a great week and found plenty of time for your crafty endeavours.
I found a couple of hours to play and thought I would craft for myself instead of DT requirements and found a great challenge over at Scrap the Girls blog. Here is the recipe they have set.....

  • flowers
  • masking
  • doodling and
  • chipboard or wood veneers
    Here is my entry for the challenge, a rare page with me in the photo taken last year (I'm the old one, LOL!). I have doodled a border around the page, something I usually do but I added some hearts to be a little different (which you might have to click on to see). The papers are American Crafts and Scenic Route.
    I looked through my masks and found a butterfly one (it is actually an old birthday card with four butterflies die cut across the front!), I had some left over homemade texture paste and added three different colour glitters on top whilst it was still wet.

    Here is the outcome of my playtime!
    The flowers were just punched and the leaves were cut from the papers.

    I added some wood veneer chevrons at the top of the photo and this little heart one tied with twine around the photo.
    All the details for this challenge can be found HERE on the Scrap the Girls Blog.
    Thanks for stopping by. xx
