The lady was from my stash.

Hi guys well I have been playing with an empty,kitchen roll,so here is the finished,result.

I took,some paper and rolled then added some,stencils to it,distressed it,then stuck it around,the roll. The wings,are done,with gold metallic,paint added swirls,and owls. The skeleton,I painted then added crackle paint on top,the base of the roll is an old,top of a jar of coffee covered with tin foil,then painted. The top is a large fragment paper underneath,then added some embellishments.

Plus here is a book I have made for a friend on FB totally different than my first creation and very girly for me lol 

This book is made from an old,box which I took apart to use for the covers.Then i have added,flowers etc,to the front,and made pages for the inside,which you can add tags etc too.

Hope you like what I have created,love massive hugs Cherylxxxxx

 Hi guys yet another post from me,I know you sit back in amazement ha ha.

Anyway as I said I am on the team at Not Just Cards,and we are given images,from sponsors and we choose what to do with them for our first challenge we had a few images,so thought it best to do another post to show each one off.

  So I picked this fab image from Auroa wings,and made another frame and colored the image with pencils,and pro-markers,

So here it is,

The frame is from TCP,along with the embellishments,the flowers I cut out,and decoupaged the frame is a mixture of crackle paste orange and,brownish,color.

So if you would like,to play along in our very first challenge,remember its always anything goes,you can enter cards,but we would love to see if you can come up with something different,

          love and hugs to you all,been over to visit a  lot of you but some blogs for some reason will not load,and I get an error message so I will pop over again this afternoon.
