Step X Step for Frilly and Funkie

Hi everyone. For those of you who asked I've done a tutorial on my upcycled flowers for Frilly and Funkie today - you can find it HERE. And to whet your appetite here are some close ups of the project I made using said flowers.














A big thank you again to Tracy Evans for her 'clear out' prize - I was thrilled to find one of the little paper mache bags made an ideal holder for ATC's, so now I can keep a visual check on how many have been completed (and more importantly how many still need to be made!) Given lashings of gesso, book print, stencilled Graphite Ferro, Crackle Paint, Treasure Gold wax and layers of lace it came up a treat and was perfect for attaching flowers to.














Don't forget, to see more hop over to Frilly and Funkie. Thanks for joining me and have a great weekend, hugs Jenny xxx
