It's Wendy Week at Simon Says

I was thrilled when I saw the theme this week at Simon Says Stamp and Show - it's Wendy Week!! So I had to make time after visiting Mum, to Make Art, as the Lady says herself.

Broke out the art parts - it's my last frame - yikes time to go shopping! 

Coloured the frame with walnut stain distress stain, (note to self, colour it before sticking it together or the glue will heat and the frame come apart....) the flower art part is a mixture of aged mahogany and fired brick with some shimmery spray and the leaves/stem are forest moss. 

I found a bauble on a cheapo necklace I could use for the centre of the art part flower and some tattered leaves I had left in the scraps box.

I've used a dictionary page for the centre piece and as vintage text paper is the theme for challenge 28 at the yahoo group Everything WendyVecchi, this is doubling there too.

Thanks for looking.

Very lovely Helen. I was hoping to enter this week as have just given up my job (for a few months anyway) so hoping for more time and mojo! Problem is I don't have any Wendy stamps - never mind - will try again next week.
