Not got much done this week, being poorly sick and all, but I did get a second canvas finished off from the Wilko pack:
This one is in browns and rusty/terracotta colours to match my youngest DDs bedroom. There are some BG Ambrosia papers in there, a few Cosmo Cricket die cuts, prima flowers and bling and another of my bargain butterflies. I've also discovered a cute little shop in the centre of Kingston (where I work) which has Decopatch stuff in it. Never heard of this before, but the papers are really useful, a tissue paper texture which is semi translucent for the first layer then gets deeper colour if you layer it up. I used a brown and gold crackle effect for the edge of this canvas and it works really well. I notice that a lot of stationery stores are starting to stock this stuff, and for alterers they have some great items to alter (I particularly love the giraffe). I found this online store that has details of Decopatch for anyone who is interested.
I also made a find in a charity shop and bought these beauties for £1.25 each!
Aren't they fab? The possibilities are endless.... which makes it difficult to decide what to do with them!!! Help!!
Well, that's all for now, apart from a big cheer for the away win yesterday. Torres was on fire! Carragher and Skirtl not so much but hey, everyone is entitled to an off day now and again... as long as they don't make a habit of it.
