What a fortnight!!!

Well that was a quick 2 weeks, Julie was away then I was away, I was sure I posted but obviously not and I am so sorry. Have you checked out Bee Crafty's NEW Tuesday Challenge Blog, it's all in the name of good fun but you can also win FREE crafting goodies so always worth an entry.

Well whilst I was away the shop has been overhauled Julie is back at the helm at Blackminster and it is MARVELLOUS so if you've missed Julie over the past few months why not come in and have a cuppa and a chat.

I am putting together a schedule of classes, demo's & mini makes for Bee Crafty on the run up to Christmas and if there is something missing that you would like to see or do, please pop in, email or give me a ring. We have always said we are run by crafters for crafters so you tell us what you would like to see.

Have I told you about the fantstic NEW Wild Rose Ladies, they are very scrumptious.

There are four brand new ladies in the Wild Rose Studio Range

I will get some samples made of these soon hoefully, but like I say we have a NEW class schedule up and there are no piccies as yet so the samples for those have to come first :)

I hope you've all had a good start to the week.

Christmas Frame with Victorian Paper Strips

Happy Monday Everyone,
Like I said on our Product Focus on Friday, October will be focusing on the Woodware Fingerguard Trimmer, so I wanted this Mondays project to be something different, so I picked up this mirror and started painting

I then base coated with a white paint laying it on quite thick letting it dry a little and then dabbing with kitchen paper to get a dimply effect.

I then mixed a brown and green paint to get a nice rich colour and stippled it on/

I cut strips of card out of Pearlescent Moulin Rouge, Satin Mirri Gold, and Green Glitter Card, using the Victorian blade that comes free with the A4 fingerguard.
I edged the green glitter card with a gold gel pen and used it again to create a stitching effect on the moulin rouge pearl.

I also used the gold gel pen to bring out the vein detail on these fabulous poinsettias (I am so sorry I've been off poorly today and didn't have chance to add them to the web I will hyperlink tomorrow)

I completed it with the Gold bling on Mulberry Holly Leaves 99p (12) and some Satin Mirri Gold Flourishes to finish.

I hope you like the finished result, it is in the shop if you want to come in and take a look, I will try and come up with something funky and fabby later in the week. I hope you have all had a good start to October
