I hope you all had a great crafty weekend - I know I did, made loads of projects, including my first tutorial which will be coming up later in the week - so watch this space.
It's time for a new challenge over at Make My Monday and this week we would love to see something a little different, hence the title 'Anything but a Card'. So go for it, it doesn't matter what you make as long as it's not a card - ATCs, exploding boxes, gift bags, journal pages, tags, wall art, 3D work, just to name a few but the list is endless. Here's what I made for my DT inspiration ...
I love making things to keep, so decided on a wall hanging for my project this week and it's all made from scratch. It measures 16.5cm x 16.5cm and the outside edge is decorated with pieces cut from a Spellbinders Lacey Square die. I only have the smaller range, so I had to cut them and piece them together to enlarge them, but the joins don't show, so we're all good.
I have used several mats and layers before adding another Lacey Square cut from pearlised lilac cardstock. The collage of items on the front include a stamped postcard (LOTV), a die-cut flower spray, a card cotton bobbin which I cut out and wrapped some cream lace around, a cute little wooden cotton bobbin which I wrapped some lilac twine around, a couple of cream hearts, loads of punched flowers, a couple of stick pins and a little sentiment banner which I created on my pc which reads 'Sewing mends the soul'. Here's a close up of some of the embellishments:
A piece of lilac polkadot organza ribbon attached to the back finishes it off and it's now ready to be hung - I just need to decide where! Lol.
Don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog and check out what my teamies decided to make this week too.
