Hello to all my lovely blogging pals!
It's the end of the week again and the end of my week off from work :( but I've had lots of fun this week with the family so it's all good!
Today I have a combined project for Crafts too challenge you, which is staying with our monthly theme of Summer days but we have now changed our twist to beach colours. And also Stampin for the weekend have the new challenge of Butterflies and we are sponsored by the fabulous Saturated Canary.
I have created an altered notebook and pen pot set for this. I have used the beach colours of sea blue and sand yellow and added prima butterflies to both my creations. This is another one of my Pay it forward makes. I started the beginning of the year popping a pay it forward post on facebook as I popped my name under a couple of other PIFs. I have been lucky enough to already receive one of my handmade goodies and so am starting to create for mine! I hope this one was well received!
My pen pot is an old can, cleaned and painted with gesso. I have used Tim Holtz shabby chic papers, some lace and flowers from WOC and a prima butterfly, there is also a tiny starfish charm on there that you can't see too well in this picture.
My altered notebook has papers from my crafts too pack, along with flowers from WOC, butterfly from prima, and joy crafts sunglasses die (from crafts too). I have used this cute splish plash sentiment also from my crafts too pack.
and here is my stunning mermaid from Saturated Canary that I have coloured with prisma pencils and have added some liquid pearls in blue to her hair.
I do hope you will check out what my teamies have made for these 2 fab challenges and that you will also join in for the chance at some great prizes!
