Well long time no see,hope you are still with me can totally understand if you are not.
Alfie has been really sick,thought at one point I was going to loose him,he lost so much weight he had to have an operation on his ear,then he hurt his back. So I spent a month nursing him back to health. No way was he going anywhere as I just could not bare to be without my little man.
Then my daughter Lisa moved,out so another week trying to get her settled in her new house,then getting mine,back with my craft room.
Then,33 years,and finally a brand new kitchen,totally gutted the whole place,ended up with new,cooker,washing machine,fridge, floor cupboards work tops the lot. Wow have never,seen so much lovely shiny new stuff,so that was another month,or chaos.
But I really hope and pray now things will improve I have started treatment due to the accident,last year,and have spent no time on the computer,just can not seem to settle for long. But hope this will sort its self soon.
Anyway enough of me running on,over at anything goes,this week the theme is make your own backgrounds,and this is what I came up with.
This is a canvas which I turned and used the other side,so it gave me,the frame. Covered it with material,then made some of the embellishments,book and paper,. The background inside is,made using tissue paper,then adhered to the base and using one of my stamps which was lightly tapped into,black Gee- Sso,to give that soft impression.
So hope you will join us in our challenge this week,which started yesterday but I had computer issues,so hence one day late. The challenge is HERE
Here are a couple of things I have been playing with,as I have not done much crafting either,but did buy some indigo blu stamps which really helped with my Mo Jo.
This I stamped,the background onto white card,cut out using a spellbinders shape,then stamped in red paint,mixed with white Gee- Sso,then stamped the lady using coffee archival ink.
This one was stamped with Black Gee Sso then cut out using a spellbinders shape,then I stamped her again and used the flowers to decoupage with. Then finished with some distress inks.
Lots of things I have used can be found,on the craftden website HERE Indgo blu stamp can be found HERE
