So now its May...... Keep up!

I just don't understand where the days go! They must be going somewhere as now it's May and before you know it , it will be Mothers Day.
I hope you all enjoyed your Easter break and have recovered from all that chocolate consumption!

I have been on a creative no go, i sit and stare at my desk and create nothing. So to get into the flow again I decided to work on something little. I have decorated a Scrapware 4" x 4" shadow box.

The base of the shadow box is covered with the gorgeous new 7 Gypsies tissue paper, the front frame i have coloured with Tim's new Distress Stains in walnut ink and vintage photo. I have then run it through the cuttle bug to emboss the cogs on it. to bring out the design i  have used gold rub n' buff .

The Scrapware watch cogs have also been coloured with distress stains and rub n' buff. I have added an old watch face too.
The cogs have been set on long screws and spaced with little metal discs called heishi's, these I had in my jewellery making stash.

The little Time word is an old style collections stamp....... You remember those! tiny little wood mounted word stamps!
The side edges of my shadow box are edged in German Scrap.
Go in to Scraptivate and see the lovely staff there to stock up on all these products.

Oh! I almost forgot to mention if you love Scrapware products as much as I do you MUST head down to Scraptivate on Wednesday May 18th. Ange Connolly ms Scrapware herself will be in-store.

It will be a fantastic day of demos and make-and-takes! I think it will be one not to miss.

next time you visit i will show you another book project that  I made a few years ago, i love this board book and it sits on a shelf in my studio space.

Thanks for dropping in.... Bye for now
