... I don't know about you but I am a teensy bit of a hoarder. Not often do I chuck stuff away... if fact, nay and thrice, you could say I keep everything cos one day it will "come in...." You the same? Well, I have this shelf above my desk and every so often it turns into the Shelf of Doom. It is the dumping ground for lots of stuff that I have planned to use on my creations but then changed my mind. I know, it would be easier to actually not be a lazy old bat and actually just put said stuff away but... well, you know what it is like don't you? (please say yes!)
Anyways... I decided to have a bit of a de-clutter of the Shelf of Doom. But then I got all pre-occupied with some cardboard bits I had found... namely a corrugated cardboard heart that had been painted red. I couldn't bring myself to chuck it away... but the red looked really naff. So, I grabbed another piece of card and turned them both into blue by blending Mermaid and South Pacific Fresco Paints onto them. Of course, a bit of stamping had to be included so I used that delish new Watering Can Archival from Wendy & Ranger and stamped a Kaisercraft scripty background onto the card base bit. And cos I could, I used Cornflower Archival and stamped the distressed diamonds (also Kaisercraft) onto the heart. Actually, you can't really see them cos I then dumped a load of flowers over the top! Whhoooops!
The flowers were also on the Shelf of Doom... plain white and very boring... so a bit of attention with Dylusions and Cosmic Shimmer sprays changed them to match the base bits. Of course, I had to use some embellies... and all these were on the Shelf of Doom too! Now, it makes my shelf sounds massive but it isn't really... it is very very piled high you see ;O)) Once everything was stuck together I popped it onto a bit of black mountboard and added on some Treasure Gold bits of jazz it up and then some string for the hanging bit... oh and the words are also from the Shelf of Doom... I remember the project I wanted these for and I changed my mind... so there you go, I am using up stuff after all!
Today I am venturing off to Birds in the Barn in Essex for two days of inky festive classes... so as I type this, it is actually last night... not today after all (and now we go down the whole, if it is now it is actually tomorrow and not really yesterday... and all of that sillliness.... you know what I means though... ) So, it is time for me to loves ya and leaves ya... don't forget, I have a giveaway (scroll down for the next post) and it is open until Sunday night! Thanks for looking, have a grand day! TTFN
