Sunday Stampers - Week 95 - Bits & Pieces

Morning Stampers! and...Happy Mother's Day to all the UK Mummy's :O)) First of all, thank you very much everyone who joined in with the challenge last week...I did the Random.org jobby to pick a winner of the blog candy from last week... and the winner is...

Donna Mundinger - congrats to you - please can you email me your addy and I will pop the stamps into the post for you :O))

The theme this week is Bits & Pieces...anyone remember this old song??? Back to the 1960's and the Dave Clark 5 - so the theme is to use bits and pieces on your art - which pretty much means that you can use anything really :O)) To join in, all you need to do is make a piece of art, include the theme and some stamping, leave me a comment here with a link to the place you are showing your art...and then I can pop over and visit you.




I used lots of "bits" on my piece for today - the base is a wooden framed mirror, which I painted with Sable Claudine Hellmuth Studio paint, then used Timber Brown StaZon to stamp some scratches onto the frame.




While this was all drying I used some Fragments to make a collage over the entire frame surface...some of the Fragments were popped onto DooDad images and the rest were cardstock, coloured with Distress Inks and then stamped over...all of the stamps are from Mr T'Holtz's collection.





I used Superglue to stick the Fragments to the frame...and then rummaged through my junk boxes to find some odd bit and pieces to add to the frame...like the mini cameo which is bottom right hand side... and the 2 - which is, I think, from an army uniform number...I have a couple of these and they have ickle holes in them...which I figure is where they would have been stitched on.




I used a selection of Fragment shapes...and left some gaps between them so it didn't look too crowded on the frame for the end result. Again, another pain to take photo's of...why do I always make things that are so hard to get decent pics of....this time I didn't lay on the kitchen floor to get the pics though...I laid on the craft room floor instead...it has carpet so is warmer LOL I have to say....the pics are really rubbish...and this actually does look a lot nicer in real life...I think I will have to invest in a better camera...and take those photography lessons I so need :O))




Thanks for looking...have a great week...and I hope you have fun with this new theme...which will remain open until 23:00 Saturday March 20th 2010.

Gorgeous piece and fabulous theme! I hope to be back to play later in the week! Right now, it's the house and all my crafty stuff that's in bits and pieces...sigh.

Heidi said...

this is wonderful, I want to do something like this but just need to focus on graduation and gifts until they are done. But I just love the TH goodies you used. I am so excited to be attending one of his classes in May. Yahoo!

Had to laugh about you on the floor with your camera--that pretty much sums up how photography gets done at my place. Sometimes it takes longer to get a decent picture than it does to make the art piece! Stellar frame!

My name is CINDY...... said...

What a brilliant project, I love it when things that are all individually so different just seem to work together. Might try to knock something up this week if I get a chance but I think you have set the bar very high with this one!
