My entry this week is my class sample from yesterday's class with the JoLLie StaMpeRs, a fab group of crafty ladies in Lancashire. I chose a Christmas theme for my Patchwork Shadow Box but there was also a non-Xmas option if that ladies fancied that too. The patchwork is dead simple to do, just a case of cutting card into ...erm... a patchwork (!) and colouring, stamping with some Xmas stamps from the Duke of Distress and then popping it into a shadowbox and bunging a hangy framey thing on it
The embellies... well, check out Santa... he was made by Lou from a mould of something or other, using something or other else (brain fog can't remember lol) and then I just gave him a good brushing with a few colours of Treasure Gold wax... which I am now addicted to... not to mention the goooorgeous smell it gives off.
The 3d bits are Alterations die-cuts, coloured with Distress Inks and then formed to make a Christmassy decoration. Finishing touches are some cute little bottles from Creative Expressions - how cute are those diddy ones! And they are filled with Rock Candy Dry Stickles... love that white sparkle.
Right, I shall away... tis near my bedtime, I am staying with Joan - a big thank you to her for organising this fab weekend... and for putting me up and feeding me THE best quiche I have EVER eaten... I so need that recipe! Back into the workshop in the morning for another day of crafting... ahhh, tis a hard life... not! Thanks for looking... have a good week and stay safe in all the horrid storms that are forecast! TTFN
