Anyway on to crafting...I thought this little saying was cute and it inspired me to make this altered chipboard piece with one of the bare sheets of chipboard available from Tando Creative. The chipboard stands up to a lot of battering and is an ideal base for the crackled paint effect using pva glue and acrylic paints.
I applied the glue and paint quite thickly and got a fab result with some really deep indents which I love.
Adding some flowers and watering can seemed in keeping with the saying and I did intend to make a hanger with my piece but I have decided to use it as a cover for an altered book containing some favourite quotes now... so that I can keep out on display because I'm really happy with the way it turned out.
Now then I have a couple of awards to share. This one I received from Sandy (thank you sweetie)
I have to reveal something unusual about myself and then pass the award on to eight other peeps.
OMG what can I tell you ????? errrrrm.... errrrrrm.... errrrrrrm......
I'm not a full Shilling...rofl (does that count..No...OK back to the drawing board!!)
I HATE comedies...even though I love to laugh and have a MAD sense of humour.... most sitcoms and comedy films drive me even MORE insane. I could scream out loud when DG stays with me and wants to watch things like 'Friends' and 'Fresh prince of Bellair' They irritate me beyond belief and I just can't laugh at them... especially shows that have 'canned laughter' aaaaaargh (I think something inside of me is switched off...ha ha ha)
Ok peeps I pass this award to the following girlies...hope you have something more unusual than me to share :D
I also received this award from Linby (Thanks me lovely)
I have to share this one with 3-5 other peeps so I award this one to the following girlies
If you made it to the end thank you for sticking with it... OMG was that a long post or what!! lol
I hope to be back with you soon but bare with me cos I'm still not creating much but I will be popping by to see what you have all been up to... you just gotta have been more productive than me ;-)
