Blog Makeover

Just a quick post from me to say Hello to everyone out there in Blogland!!

I have given mine a little facelift tonight, thought as its Spring I would brighten it up, all it needs now is updating with some crafty posts. Things have been pretty busy here over the last few weeks so there has hardly been any crafting happening. Things should settle down in a couple of weeks, all the nights out, visits and parties will be over and I will be able to catch upon my scrapping and card making.

Afternoon all...

Sorry for not blogging for a couple of weeks, hope you like what I have to share with you today.

One of my challenges to myself this year was 'try something different' so with that in mind I recently bought myself some distress crackle paints. I had found this a few weeks ago and with it as my inspiration I set about creating my own altered picture frame. Below is the result....

I started with a cheapo wood effect frame that I picked up in the local home store and covered it with a layer of pink Paper Artsy chalk effect paint which was followed by a coart of Paper Artsy Crackle glaze. After leaving that to dry I then added a coat of white Paper Artsy chalk effect paint. Finally I sealed it with a coat of Ranger Crackle Accents before adding some flowers (from Wild Orchid Crafts) and a couple of gem& pearl swirls.

I am really pleased with the way its turned out, am now planning to make a couple more of these as birthday gift.

Thanks for looking, Jane x
