Well..

If anyone finds my inspiration lurking at the back of their cupboard, could you please return it to me! lol
Decided to have a go at making something for the art raffle today (link on the right somewhere), as I missed January's. The theme is Trees. So I have made a hanging thingy - not sure what to call it!
Used memory glass and memory frame. First distessed the images with a scratchy tool and some distress ink. Then popped it in the frame. Made some shrink plastic charms and used one of these. Added some tiny beads and a leaf embossed in metal.




Also had a play with a slide mailer. First painted it with some metalic acrylic. Stamped a tree onto some tissue paper and stuck it on the front with some glossy accents. Added an embossed leaf. Used some paper on the inside and stamped a fern image randomly over it. Used a Crafty Individuals image on the slide side and then covered it with glossy accents.
