It's off the Floor!!!!

Yay folks the project is off the floor and up on the wall, I now have space to swing that proverbial cat in my room!!! It did proove to be quite the challenge to put this together, amazing how the creative mind thinks anything is possible, but a practical mind works in a totally different headspace. So we had to collaborate "Gasp!" (my DH and I that is) and the job is done, knew we could do it just didn't need the carry on about nails, screws etc!!!

I was inspired by a photo I saw on the canvas corp website where they made what they called a canvas wreath, it looked like a great idea, and this is the result or my spin on their idea. I used loads of  ScrapFX  chipboard, canvases from the $2 shop and printed my photos on canvas paper to add to the texture, it was fun to put together but am very pleased it is out of my room and I don't have to look at it as much anymore!!! Hope this inspires!

So there you have it I hope it was worth waiting for, I would love to see what others come up with, let me know if you are going to give it a "burl", love seeing what others do!!!
Thanks for dropping by, much love,

Decorative Panel

Wow just realized how long it has been since I last wrote something here. The reason is, I have been busy on an off the page project that I will share with you a little later, so stay tuned!

 In the mean time I thought I would share something I had prepared earlier:

This is a small panel I have decorated using loads of chipboard pieces from my collection of ScrapFX,  as well as bits and pieces from my extensive stash (Yes I think I may have a hoarding problem because I still have plenty). Really great fun to do, each little window is about the size of an ATC card, perhaps a little smaller, so I just cut the chipboard  down using interesting little bits. The panel is from ScrapFX also, one of their Master Pieces that come with the backing so it all fits perfectly together.  

I have added small hinges to the frame so they can be opened to reveal a quote and to add a little interest to the piece, ( I do love things that are interactive) like a child's pop up book where you get a little hidden extra when it is opened.

 Well I hope you like it and stay tuned for the piece I am still working on, I promise to write a little more regularly,
 thanks for stopping by!!!
