Good morning fellow bloggers, how are you this Wednesday morning? Me you ask, I'm full of cold with a chest infection so I'm doing great - day off???? No don't be silly too much work to do. Rest of family you ask??? Hubby fast on in bed poorly - we're having a great week not!!!!! Actually we are OK overall just suffering a bit, we'll be OK in a couple of days, just needing a bit of time to get us sorted.
Anyway, thought I'd stop by and do a quick post because I can show off another of my alterables - now technically speaking I should put what it looked like first on my blog - but that will be the link picture on blogger dashboard and it might frighten you away - so I've put the finished results first!!! Two of them so hopefully you can see the dimension
This was a charity shop buy, a small extremely well made shadow box frame - quick scroll down to see what it looked like originally. Originally yellow pine with a silk gerbera inside - honestly not the most inspiring of looks, so I dismantled it and sanded the frame (well DH sanded the frame because I don't do sandpaper), then I painted it with black acrylic paints, stamped some paper artsy houses onto cream cardstock and pink cardstock, did a bit of paper piecing stamped the words home is where the heart is on the same cream cardstock, roughly cut out and penned around (twice for good measure), used some black soot ink through some heart punchinella. Then I used some pink paper at the back onto the original mount, layered up the houses with some foam squares, stuck down the saying and reassembled and I have to say I am rather pleased with it!
