Altered drawers...


Hello to everyone, I hope your week is going well, so far so good....
Just thought I would share this little set of drawers, I bought them in the Works at least a year ago, only got round to sorting them in January would you believe, and then forgot to share, SO, here they are, such a sweet little set and were very cheap at the time.....
They were plain wood, sorry no pic to be found...screammmmmmm....
I sanded them and did a wash in watered down white acrylic paint, oh and I did take all the little pull handles off first...
The paper I used is from magnolia, 12x12 sheet  bought from the Bunny Zoe sale, I used the TH sizzix die as a stencil for the added texture, the drawer handles were treated to a quick wipe of deco art  metallic lustre....
I am very happy with the finished set, got so many new idea's for more re-do's now, just waiting for the 'health storm' to pass so I can actually get on with it all...

Hope you like, please let me know what you think....enjoy the rest of the week, I hope to see you all Friday...

Hello stranger..!!!!!!!!!!


Hello blogland, been awhile and it feels strange to say the least...
I have missed you all, after having a bad time with my health issue's once again, I feel like I am finally getting there, I can't use any markers or anything with a strong odour yet, but I have tried making a card without an image....omg, was that weird..lol....am not back on my dt yet, but fingers crossed for this time next week....Carol and the girls have been fabulous as always....

Not convinced it needs the Butterfly, but hey-ho....
The paper is from a gorgeous pad I bought recently, it's Trimcraft, Santoro, double sided,simply gorgeous quality, you will not want to use..honest... which is where the butterfly came from, just cut it out and stencilled it with ink, dies are TH pearls and ribbon from stash, flowers WOC frame and banner from the range, the little scrolls are from LLC, I have to say I enjoyed this...
Well I hope you like, off to see any challenges for it....I NEED to kick start my craft obsession again....lol....
************************
May I also add that we celebrate our lovely Queen Elizabeth' 90th birthday today, I hope you can wish her a very happy day and more to follow....

That's all from me, Thanks so very much for popping in to see me.....
