Fun Day - Easter Sunday


I went to see Hilda on Easter Sunday and as you probably imagined, we got messy!!! Here is Hilda with green hands, I know green is my colour, but she beat me to it - lol!!!


She found a few things for us to do!!! This was a little box which I altered.


I stamped all 4 edges using, dream, hope, art and follow.


She had just taken stock of some mini bird houses, so we had a play with those too!!!


I added mini cotton reels to the bottom of mine for extra height!!!


This was by far the best thing we played with, this is where Hilda's green hands came in. She did her suitcase green and by it was green but with a bit of distressing she toned it down so it looked shabby and tattered!!! I did mine brown and splodged some black on with kitchen roll, then I sanded the edges and used walnut stain and black soot distressed inks, added the label, some string and the prestuds.


When I got home I attacked the inside (as we ran out of time). The lid is an old piece of map.


The bottom is scrunched up white tissue with tea dye and walnut stain distressed inks rubbed over it. A torn ticket, an airmail letter, an artists pallet and some home made pens were placed inside.
