Little Man


I started off with a wooden plaque, painted it with French roast fresco paint, followed by a random layer of crackle glaze and then a layer of stone, sanded it back and added more French roast.


And it evolved into this!!

Over at Hobby House their theme for July is 'vintage' and if you use products sold by them, you are in with a chance of being picked for their top 3.  The gems are Hobby House pearls from the wedding day selection.

Alison has also informed me that I can join in with Our Creative Corner challenge this month too which carries the theme of 'captured memories', where the project must include a photo.
