new projects

well i have been having a play again
bought 3 frames for 99p from wilkos and decided to do some altering as haven't really done much of this before
i painted the one with adirondak paint dabbers then added some prima flowers buttons and cut out a butterfly on the cricut quite like it thought it would be nice for a girls room
the other one i am playing with to get ideas for my cousins silver wedding i'm not going to give them this one of course just playing with it to see what i can do with it
i have embossed it with some silver embossing powder by stewart gill it's got a nice twinkle to it. i stamped in holographic gold up the side with heidi grace stamp then cut out the dove and heart on cricut if i use that on the real one i will build it up more make it look more substantial cut the little scrol thing out on the cricut too
anyway hope you like my first efforts tell me what you think good or bad or if you have any ideas they are always welcome

Oh, love the frames! My favorite is the first one - the leaves placed around the edges is a nice touch and the butterfly on the corner is just beautiful!

Hiya Gill, just left you a message in docrafts, I love looking at your cards and as usual they are fantastic. Good to see your feeling a bit better and back to crafting.

Hi Gill - The frames are great and what a bargain you got! I have some IKEA ones lined up for having a go when I'm feeling brave!
