Snippets

Well, did you guess what they were? (Val did) a 'door plaque' for my very own craft room...I would like to thank Carol for the name on the first plaque... then the rest was my idea...why?...


... because I REALLY do see it as 'my little piece of paradise'

The main chipboard and string that was used were from a Cosmo Cricket kit, I've had for yonks and still untouched (until now, lol), in fact think I have another one somewhere. I used Papermania Colossal pastel paper pack to cover them all, as the colours go well with my craft room colours...


ARTY ATTIC was wrote with sizzlits sunset and the small buttons, scissors, rub ons and bits were from my stash....


I used Fluffy decorative strip for the words 'MY LITTLE', the birds and branches were also from a decorative strip,


Again Fluffy decorative strip was used for the writing 'PIECE OF', also the medium sizzlit flourish #4 and a thin cut flowers


and for PARADISE I used sizzlits Azure, sizzlit Hawaiian flowers #2, forever friends coloured sticker, rub on 'memories' and ice cream sticker from my stash and lastly the wooden buttons from button-it

Then I gave the whole lot a coat of sparkle Mod Podge to help it to stay clean...

Well this is the first item that was totally made up in my 'Arty Attic' hopefully the first of many, lol...

Hi Maria

Love your door plaque missus - and well done to Carole for getting it started!

Have been a bt busy but have just caught up on your previous post as well and hope that the arrangements for Stephen's carers/support workers settle down for all your sakes. I can only too fully understand the stress is causes.
