My Heart Belongs to U{TEE}...

...Cor blimey, I feel like I have been away for a year...not just a day...sorry I didn't get on yesterday and come and visit... the packing has started in earnest now and I thought that it was bad last week..ha! This week is even worse!!! I mean, exactly how much junk can one couple accumulate over a few years??? We sorted out the garden stuff yesterday - and... I got sunburnt... on my shoulders... just shows I am a fair English rose LOL




A little frame I altered the other night was sitting there ready to be blogged yesterday and I just didn't get chance...so here it is today. It one of the teensy ickle ones like the one I did the other week. I painted it with ... wait for it... Traditional Tan paint and then spritzed with Walnut Gold Glimmer Mist...stamped a mini script image... and then whacked some Rock Candy crackle over it.




The bit in the middle is a mini stamp from Mr T'Holtz... which says Paris, which is in France... so how fab I could use the Fleur De Lys from the new Idea-ology charms... but it needed something to sit on ... so I made a little heart mould - using Mold & Pour - and then made some red UTEE using a base of clear UTEE and normal red embossing powder... poured it in, resisted the temptation to stick my finger in it to see if it was set (!) and then added some gold Krylon just to finish it off.




I am off now... to growl at some more boxes...I haven't started the Room of Stash yet... but I have thought about it...so that will have to do for now LOL Anyone going to Ally Pally this weekend? I will be on The Artistic Stamper stand (#49) helping Jennie out and hopefully getting some demo-ing in too :O)) Would be lovely to see you so if you do pop by, please say hi!
Right, gotta dash... that request I put in for the Packing Fairy to come and help fell on deaf ears... TTFN

Hels -

It's amazing how much "stuff" you can accumulate! We moved about 25 years ago and I still have some things in boxes in my basement! I love your darling frame and what a clever girl to utilize the UTEE to frame the Fleur De Lys!

Lovely little frame Hels and what a sweet little heart.

I'm so glad you're going to be at AP tomorrow. I really didn't think you would be with all the packing etc. I'm going for the first time ever and 3 crafting buddies and I are staying overnight so we can go both days. Expect to get stalked, Lol!
