Hi all. This week we are doing a blog hop ,
To show you what we have all done with our frames,
You should have started at Imagin If`s Blog.
and arrived here from Lillian's Blog
Above is a Christmas  Hanging I made using the 3 frames
below, some paint, chipboard , and a few bits
I painted the frames and covered one side with paper.
I then used a peace of lace down the back of the frames
to hold them together .
I then chose the pieces of chip board i wonted to use





The photo below shows the sparkles so much better.

This pretty fairy is covered in glitter, sadly it doesn't show up
that great here, but belive me she is super sparkly and has
pretty gold wings. I added a couple of cute little presents
and a piece

The last square I have a really cool deer, and a cute little person
with a candy cane that I fussy cut out of a sheet.
Hope you have had a wonderful weekend.

to get some texture, then used a mist spray.

Pin Cushion Chair

 This week I decided to put this super cute  Chair  together.
You can get this at Imagine If HERE 

I started to glue and remembered I need to take photos lol, i am
always so keen to get started I forget.

I chose my paper to cover the back and arms of the chair

I used this lovely vintage red acrylic paint for the smaller
joining parts


This picture shows which parts I painted,

Once the paint was dry I used gold embossing powder to emboss the
back top of the chair and over the painted parts to give a richer look

For those of you that haven't tried using embossing powders.
What I have done here is used a stamp with versamark instead of ink,
then you sprinkle your embossing powder over the area you stamped.
Then shack of excess powder and heat. This gives amazing  results

The photo above I have heated one end so you can see the effect

Next comes the fun part, putting it together

I then added a little pin cushion

 And added some pretty pins

 I was thinking, this would be good at Christmas or Easter with a wee gift
or Easter egg on the chair all decorated up to match the occasion.
Thanks for visiting and have a great week

If you would like to see the other DT girls  fabulous creations
you will find all there links on the Imagine If Blog  HERE

Tag your it

This week I have a little game for you, below is my tag from Imagine If .The first person that guesses
what the main colour will be on it, will get a gift in the post from me.

Now for our blog hop this week you should have started at Imagine If
and come from Ngaeres  blog before me.
.I really love this tag, its a good size ,
If you got a few of these it would make a great brag book to

First I sealed the tag with Gesso

 I used my Gellie plate to make the back ground color

I mixed my colors, then place the bubbles stencil over the top,
and on top of that went my tag

I really should have got a photo of the tag on its own
but you can see the pattern still, its on the right hand side
of the photo..

next I placed the negative of my large stencil, which is something
no other stencil makers do that I know of, and I LOVE IT
Then  I rolled black on the gellie plate , removed my lady, leaving
it clear of paint where she was as above.

 I then placed my tag color side down, gave it a good roll with the
 brayer . Lifted the tag and this is what you get.

I then used the butterfly stencil to give her wings, I used masking
tape to cover up a small area to get the effect I wonted

Using whipped spackle I filled in the areas I wonted, which gave a
lovely white raised effect

When doing this remove the stencil carefully, so as not to
drag it across the wet spackle

I added this lovely quote from " wings and things" quote sheet
I love these sheets, makes adding little quotes and sayings so
easy. Some times my brain just wont help me out .

Added a few bits and bobs .and  here's the finished tag

Below are the 3 stencils I used from Imagine If

Due to Jo being so busy with 1 craft show after another not
all of the stencils are up on the site, but you can e-mail Jo
and she will get you sorted out.

Drum Roooollllllllllllllllllllllllllll  The winner of my blog prize is
   Marilyn Gunn , the answer was Black.
Thanks for playing ladies.
