Remember When .....


I came across this oval piece of wood whilst looking for something else!!  I gave it a coat of mushroom fresco paint, randomly spread on crackle paste, the added a mix of nougat and Irish cream for the top coat.


And somehow ended up with this!!!

Don't worry, you've not come to the wrong blog!!  I was inspired by Minxy aka Nicky with her new shabby chic projects when I was making!!!

I used watered down antique linen, spun sugar and seedless preserve distress stains to colour the strip of net curtain that I cut off for the frill around the edge!!

The hearts, leaves and butterfly are made from moulds using paper clay kindly given to me by Pink Sparkle Days aka Emma.  They have been coloured with distress ink markers.

I'd like to enter into the following challenges, 
Ali-Craft - butterflies
Hobby House - vintage
Our Creative Corner - captured memories
Altered Eclectics - anything goes

This is indeed very unusual for you, but I do like it. I think you did a great job with the "lace" and a lovely picture in 3D.

Delicious vintage look, and the layering on the photo is so effective. Not sure I'd ever have guessed who made it!! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Our Creative Corner.
