Hello, I hope everyone is having a great Friday. It’s the start of a bank holiday weekend here, my plan is to do a little gardening & a lot of crafting.
Earlier today I finished my top secret, epic project for PaperArtsy’s 10th birthday #3UP challenge – you won’t see it for a while yet, but I have to say, I’m quite pleased with how it turned out. I wanted to take part in this week’s PA challenge, the guest designer was Carol Quance & she had beautiful creations to show us, but I’m tired today, so I chose the first of her projects for my make.
I didn’t have a pencil case, but I did have this box. And of course, I had to use the CWS mini cornflower stencil, which I bought at Stamperama the other week.
I used Nougat, Irish Cream, Mocha Mousse & Chocolate Pudding frescos. For some reason, I used sequin waste to put grunge paste through on the top, then decided it wasn’t an especially good look, so I covered with one corner with the flowers & sanded back the other.
I’m not entirely happy with this. A wash of Stone fresco & the addition of the ribbon & flowers improved it somewhat & there’s a subtle sheen from the Spanish Topaz & White Fire Treasure Gold, but it’s still not quite right. Anyway, I’m still going to enter it into the PA challenge, because I won’t get anything else made before the end of the challenge on Sunday.
Thanks for looking. Until next time,
Love & light.
