Odds and Ends

 Decided to use up some odds and ends of paper that were too small for cards and too nice to throw away, so I covered this small box. Left over metal beads were used to make the feet. I dusted walnut distress ink on the edges and covered with gel medium - which was then re-covered with Spray and shine as the medium was causing the lid to stick!

 This  is a present for my Mum. It is a photo of her mother, the only one we have of her (I used a copy of course). So I hope she will like it

My attempt at brayering! I was made up when I saw this Blake verse stamp by Clarity as it's always been one of my favourites.

This is one of the first cards I made and my first use of alcohol inks, so I have a soft spot for it.

And finally a wedding gift tag, I saw a really cool new way (new for me anyway) to make roses and had to use them on something.


  1. You've certainly been productive. I really like what you've done with your grandmother's photo (copy!) - it's lovely.

  2. Great idea to use up all your scraps, I am very wasteful and very rarely do, must change my ways! LOL,your steampunky Alice box it's fab & like Soo I love the little hanging you've made for your Mother looks so Victorian vintage. XX
