I had a lovely lazy morning - woke early but dozed in bed for a while - mooched around the shops a bit (did a bit of shopping - bought some jeans (double reduced), some books (on a 3 for 2 offer) and a bit of crafty stash - check out these cool guitar ear-rings - obviously I won't be wearing them!! and they were in the sale too, & on a buy one get one free deal - so the anchors came too! I am still assembling bits and bobs for my configurations box....!
And - erm - I MAY have done a spot of online stash shopping too.....!
Everything Wendy Vecchi group challenge this week - working from book one, pge 36 - but you don't need the book, the guidelines are to use stitching round the edge and a butterfly cut from patterned paper - anyone who belongs to the group can join in - so click here and join the fun!
Used an oblong Art Part piece, covered the base with Graphic 45 paper, painted the frame with gesso then forest moss distress stain, and used a Paperbag Studio stitch stamp - you can see my stamp stitching is as poor as my needle stitching, HA HA.
Used Wendy stamps for some interest in the frame (can anyone please tell me why I never remember to stamp these before I assemble the bloody frame.....?)
The butterfly is stamped on the same paper as the background and is double sided in case you see the back!
