I hope everything is good with you all and that the last week has been a kind one to you.
I am a very excitable person this morning as we go away for a week in the sunshine today with some very dear friends and I can't tell you how much we are looking forward to it. (Because of this I wont be around for next weeks blog but I am sure you will forgive me!
Today Susan has asked the Allsorts Teamies to make a project and -
Add a Butterfly
Well, as we all know adding a butterfly to a project is not a difficult one for a crafter and we have so many choices in our crafty stashes from stamps, dies and toppers. I thought I would share with you a project that I did a few weeks ago for a Friend's birthday and she said that she loved it and I was a happy bunny.
There is quite a combination of different crafty products as you can see. The main focal point is the parchment butterfly which is a pattern that a lovely friend of mine Josie Davidson has designed and I traced it in black and coloured it in pearlescent paints and embossed to highlight. The background is grid work using one of the pergamano grids and this pattern is so adaptable to so many different projects. The die cut is the Sweet Pea from Tattered Lace and the flowers have been made from paper clay using a Katy Sue mould. As you can see I have matted a layered the background in cerise pink pearl card and white glitter.
I hope that you like it as much as my friend did when I sent it to her.
The team have made some fabulous projects over at the Allsorts Challenge so please pop over and take a peep and get some inspiration if need be. Why not have a go at entering the Challenge this week as we always have some fabulous prizes up for grabs, thanks to our great and generous sponsors.
Anyway, must dash now as our plane wont wait! and I will catch up with you again when I get back home. August is a really exciting and busy month for the shop so will have lots to tell you about.
Thankyou, as always for popping in and hope that you can find a minute to leave a comment for me.
Bye for now
