Something for Spring

Hello lovely bloggers

I thought I would show something different today, I bought the frame with the little square in from Crafty Individuals some time ago and decided to have a go at making something from it - this is the finished result:-

The little squares are about one and a half inches square and they pop our quite easily to decorate.  I just lightly coloured each and used stamps, in the main, to decorate them.  The little birdhouses are chipboard and I found an old skeleton leaf (do they still do them, I wonder) to put on too.  I mounted the smaller frame onto a piece of heavy cardboard, painted it white with acrylic and then made the outer frame from some mount board.  I lightly distressed the mount board, then covered the whole frame with a large Hero Arts friendship word stamp.  The tree, the bird and the flourish are all chipboard which I coloured to match the frame.

Once again my photography has been poor but hopefully you can double click on it and get a better view.  We are off to visit our Son and his Wife and their new chickens!  Back soon to catch up with blogland.

In the meantime, if you do visit, please leave me a comment, as I love to read them and I always try to return the favour.  Take care blog friends and thanks again to all my new followers, I do so appreciate you joining me!  Crafty hugs, Anne x

  4. Absolutely gorgeous. So much work has gone into it, I love it! You can still get skeleton leaves. Wild Orchid Crafts sell them in packs of 100 and they are very inexpensive. They sell lots of other goodies too. Definitely worth a look at their online shop. Have a fabulous time today xx
