Playing!


Well have been very self indulgent recently, and despite the long "to do" list, stuck on my wall...............I've been making something for me!! It occurred to me that I don't actually have anything with my flowers on, so I have made myself a canvas! I covered the canvas with some scrummy Creative Impressions paper and distressed the edges with black distress ink. The words from the sheet off paper..."Be true to yourself" I tore out and attached to the bottom corner of the canvas. I used some left over paper to cut out some flowers, the edges of which were again distressed, before the flowers were covered completely in Glossy Accents.I attached these to the canvas, and added gems using stickles paint. more flowers were painted on, gems added and leaves painted. The canvas was then finished off with butterfly stickers. The colour has not come out very well in the photo, as it is actually darker and more gothicy than it appears! :)
