My Creative endevours have moved

MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

Picture magnet

All Mum's deserve gifts at any time of year and after mine was poorly recently I made her this large picture magnet to cheer her up.  I used a chipboard sheet and chipboard pieces from Tando Creative and a beautiful vintage image that was supplied for a challenge on Hands and Heart ning.

 I covered the chippie sheet in acrylic paint and glitter (although my photography doesn't show this up too well I'm afraid) before decoupaging the image and  I adhered a piece of magnetic sheet to the reverse so that it can be displayed on the fridge.

I painted the smaller chipboard pieces and added glitter before covering with Diamond glaze and added a teardrop gem to the top piece.

It took a while but I think it was worth it in the end.
Thanks for looking.
