News and Halloween Book

Its been a long time since I last posted on here ....
Have had some health problems.. three beaks in my tibia following a fall
( on a cross channel ferry would you believe!) and the first x-rays did not show the damage
Ah well, have now been discharged from the fracture clinic and my physio no
longer wants to see me, so that's good.
At the same time I have had to have one of my tear ducts rebuilt... had the tubes out
today so fingers crossed!
Bit enough of that.. CRAFTING..
Have made this little "coffin shaped " book for a swap...

It's Christmas!

Aftet all this time my muse came to pay me a short visit and encouraged me to make this Xmas configuration box using various bits that I had accumulated. I have taken 3 pics..
1 st one is with no lights, 2nd has side and top lights and the third has all lights on.
Am not sure that I am 100% happy with it.... might have to take the front off and re-arrange.
Any comments gratefully received....

Gone Fishing.....

Thi tag was inspired by some prints in a local
pub/restaurant that we enjoy going to...
The Fishery Inn at Elstree...
there was a set of prints on the wall,
this was a take on them....

Background was distress inks in old paper and
antique linen
stamp (TH utimate grunge) in frayed burlap
and the fish from paperartsy hotpicks HP1201
embossed in white.
the feathers were from my odds & sods box tied together
with embroidery silk and held with a white fastenator.

Might make another one or two with different fish....
wait and see

painted,crackled and dyed fabric

Credit where credit is due.......I had a peep at Lin Browns blog
( when I spotted something new
she had been trying,so had to have a go myself!!
she had painted fabric with fresco paints,covered with fresco
crackle then another coat (different colour) of fresco paint
so thats what I did...............
I added some lace dyed with TH stain in old paper and
some little buttons sewed onto the bottom.To maintain the
colour scheme I stained a TH rose with the old paper and added to
the top along with a metal leaf and two pearls
I think it worked out quite well!
ps the stamps were Indigo Blu lady and BLine tape measure

tore of part of the top layer and painted with white acrylic
stuck some TH tissue paper onto grungeboard
then cut out a bird. cut out  TH flourish from some more
grungeboard and shattered stained it in various shades
of pink. Stained some crinkle ribbon in the same colours
added a crown and a wordstick...and there you have it..
a litt;e bit of shabby!
Oh yes, also made a rose from pink mulberry
paper as a finasl embellishment
Hope you like this??
