Make and Take

I've just got back from a fantastic workshop with Hels and what a great day we had at The Stamp Attic playing with Ten Seconds Studio metal. Just had to get this up as I want to enter it into the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge which is metal   -  well that's just perfect isn't it???

I just had enough light to get a photo, but had to do it outside. Wall hanging made of 7 gypsies board and metal added after we had used moulds and alcohol inks. The flower is also metal on card, as is the heart.

Thanks for a wonderful day Hels - loved it.

Must dash, dinner is about to be served.

Take care. B xxxxx

Compendium of Curiosities week 17

Good morning - yes it's morning and I need to get to bed cos I am off early to go to The Stamp Attic later and a workshop with Hels. But I just had to get this post up very quickly so that I can enter the CCC at Studio L3 which this week is fragment charms.

Please go to P. 64 of Tim's book to see what they are and how to use them. It's the first time I have had a go with them and they can create the most adorable embellishments for a whole variety of works of art.

Mine is a Nestabilities frame, a grungepaper deer, DIs, embossing powders and stamps, then some Crafty Bitz embellishments and of course my fragment charms. I managed to make it this evening and was determined to get it done. I've worked all week and had to work all day today, except for an hour in the garden doing some autumn clearing. The family came round for dinner this evening, so there hasn't been much time to play, but here it is.

Apologies for the photo, but I have had to lay this down even though it's going to be hung on one of my doors at Christmas, and the light is awful. Hopefully I'll get a better one in the light if I get home in time later on.

My sincere apologies to blog buddies. I just haven't got round to seeing anyone this week and I'm behind with my DT commenting too. I hope to catch up soon, but it could take me 5 or 6 weeks to be back in the blogging world properly. Please stay with me, I promise I will get there.

I hope your weekend is going well. Have a great Sunday.
