Brrrrrrrr. It's blooming freezing and the snow just fell out of the sky all day yesterday, so I am certainly not looking forward to driving to work this morning.
This is my DT project for Live and Love Crafts and the theme that us girlies are following this week is Anything but square. After seeing so many beautiful calendars in blogland and having never made one before I thought I would challenge myself. I already had a woodware clipbaord which I bought sometime back, so this was my starting point.
I'm loving the colour combo of blue and cream at the moment, but blue is believe it or not my favourite colour, soo gorgeous and perfect for vintage.
Lots of piccies, and the links to the products used are all listed at the bottom of the page.
Here's a close up of the image which is from Grandma's Attic Romance sheet by Pion Designs and you can clearly see the gorgeous LLC lace with dalmante's framing the image, isn't it beautiful and even more so IRL.
The string pearls cascading down the right hand side.
Here you can see the crackle paint doing it's stuff and the gorgeous vintage brad on the top left and the the cute little love hanger and a semi circle of the lovely lace doilies.
Here you can see the Family light bulb, just awesome and the gorgeous arrangement of fours all coated in white gesso and one of the new charms, clock with swallow. Have you checked out all the new charms at the LLC store, wow.
Another flroal arrangement with a wooden butterfly coated in distress crackle paint and a Tim Holtz nib added to the centre.
I look forward to reading your comments as always and thanks for popping by.
