...cor blimey! I can't believe how quickly this past few weeks has whizzed past! Tis time for my Jones DT offering. Now a few weeks ago I was doing a demo day at Inspirations in Preston and there I was, sitting
playing working and along came a policeman! I know! In a craft shop! *and yes, I somehow managed to look guilty even though I was, of course, totally innocent* He had ventured into the shop to see if he could find something to mount a whistle in. He had asked one of the gals who works in the shop and she brought him over to me (poor, unsuspecting chap) and of course, who am I to turn down the request of a policeman?
The whistle belonged to his sergeant who was retiring and he wanted to present it to him in a special box as a keepsake. That was as far as he had got with his idea. He was holding a little wooden box and looked a bit lost so I offered to help him out. I painted the outside of the box for him, sanded it and then added some Distress Ink... at that point he had got a bit bored of watching paint dry and off he went to buy said box and go and fix the whistle into it. He left me the lid of the box as payment for my time... yes, last of the big spenders lol Of course, I needed to use the lid immediately so I filled it up with delish Rustic Harmony papers from Kaisercraft - painting the wood black, sanding it and then inking with Gathered Twigs to add a bit of vintageness to the project and then popping a few stamped butterflies into the box... voila, a quicky vintagey project finished.
I shall away now - I have a project on the go I need to attend to, exciting!!! Thanks for looking... TTFN
