Mon Amour album

black chipboard album decorated with graphic 45 Mon Amour papers. Inside there is plenty of space to mount photos. Tags for adding tickets/stubs etc. The back page holds a wood frame into which a photo can be placed from the top. Ribbon ties it closed. Pretty lace and rose on the front cover. I also used glossy accents on the front page but its not showing too well. I really enjoyed working with this paper.

upcycled guitar

Hello !I had a small guitar that I wanted to upcycle. I added flowers in lots of colours, large pearl bead and bead chain around the body.I placed a large rose in the centre and added some beautiful AB beads (you cant see them but the sparkle so much when the light catches them.). I added some string to the knobs at the back and placed on the wall. This was good fun but took lots of flowers.Thanks for stopping by .

I love the colours around the garden just now. I have some late flowering roses and other flowers and the colours influenced this card.I hand stamped Tilda and coloured her with Noir pens and Derwent pencils. I used Kanban paper (floral) and the dots were from my stash. I added some ribbon around the centre. I distressed the paper edges,I inked some edges with TH distress ink. I handmade the flowers and die cut some leaves. I hand stamped the sentiment . To finish I added a pretty stick pin. Thanks for stopping by it is appreciated.
