Workshop with Linda Elbourne

Mini Journal
Small Suitcase
Can't believe that this class was nearly two weeks ago! I had a lovely day out with Francesca at the craft Barn where we took a class with the amazing Linda Elbourne, it was a brilliant class and it was wonderful to catch up with old crafting friends. 

We've got our fingers crossed that our dodgy telephone line has now been fixed so I'll be able to upload more frequently. It hasn't rained properly since the BT man came out so I'm not holding my breath.

Compendium of Curiosities 2, Challenge 5!

Yes!!!!! - It has taken so long to get this photo to upload I nearly gave up trying tonight but I keep on missing the Compendium of Curiosities, Volume 2 challenges so thought I'd try a few more times. 

Technique: Shattered Stains on page 48

I made this card for my good crafting friend Francesca, using the Shattered stains technique plus a few more that are also covered in Tim Holtz's book and on the wonderful CC101 online course.

Altered Matchbox

I took part in a matchbox swap on Facebook organised by Zuzu's Petals.
I used the small type of matchbox and painted it with black gesso all over; embossed a piece of metal foil and edged it by hand then applied alcohol ink to the top surface of the metal; heart shaped brad and the inner of the metal flower. Inside the matchbox I used glossy accents, dewdrops, pearls, glitter and a key charm.
