Hello and welcome,
Over on the PaperArtsy blog the lovely and very talented Carol Quance has been giving us lots of inspiration this week with some fabulous projects but as I had rather a lot on my plate this past week I had decided I really didn't have time to join in the challenge. However, it kept niggling at me and on the spur of the moment late yesterday evening I decided to have a go at something taking Carol's first gorgeous project of the week as my inspiration. I don't have one of the pencil cases Carol used (must rectify that very soon) so I dug a little box out of my stash to alter.
Please bear in mind that I did all the work on this box by artificial light including taking the photographs and I have a distinct feeling that when I see it in daylight later in the morning (it's currently 01.30) I am not going to be happy with the paint job, lol! When I was editing the photos just now, the paint looks patchy to me but I'll reserve judgement till daytime. I hope I still like it though because the crackle is gorgeous! No 'how to' in this post as I've more or less followed Carol's method HERE.
Do pop over to the PaperArtsy blog if you get chance. August has seen the 10th birthday of this fabulous company and there have been blog posts every day throughout the month from some wonderful designers together with a weekly challenge and random draw giveaways. I was a lucky winner of some fab newly released stamps last week ;D!
Right, I'm off to link my little box to the challenge and then it's off to bed. I'm going to be busy in the morning getting ready for my lovely daughter to come visit for a few days with Izzy and Charlie so I won't get much chance for blog hopping and none at all for crafting I should think. Never mind, it will still be there when they go home and time with them is precious 'cos they are growing up far too fast.
Enjoy what's left of the weekend, including the extra day off for us here in England, and I hope the week ahead is a good one for you all.
Until next time
