snow and crafting!

Well, the kids have yet another day off school because of the snow. I understand the reasons they are closed - I just wish they would make the decision before 8.30 in the morning - most people were already on their way!

As much as I love it - I hope it all melts quickly so we can get back to normal routine. Although it has given me some time to steal to try and get back into crafting.
Have made my entry for this months art raffle - the theme was the beach. I have not been able to join in for a while so have started with a slide mailer.

Managed to use my new pot of crocco paint - it is the gorgeous turquoise colour. Used a vintage image of a bathing beauty and covered it in glossy accents and added micro beads, added a couple of other images and some charms. The plaque on the front is made using a metal book plate from stampin up, coloured with precious metal paints, then filled with glossy accents, a small charm and more micro beads.
