Head start on Spring, Mini-Theatres and a Ginger Gem Award
Had a busy day yesterday, generally making a mess and crafting, and managed to get some pieces finished and some started. It was Carnival here in Rhineland, and I belong to those who DON'T like it, so it was a wonderful excuse for a crafty day. Not that I really need an excuse....
I finished a shadow box which has been waiting on the kitchen table for a few days. It was the box from the plastic clock that I altered for the *On the wings of time* Challenge. First I covered it in TH Tissue Tape, and then decided to polish it with inka copper. Now you can hardly see the tissue tape, so I could have spared it, but I suppose we are always wiser afterwards. I painted the rim with some gold structure paste and dipped it in some gass glitter. The box has been filled with some fabric flowers and a moulded head, painted with inka copper, and is for a spring swap on one of the forums I belong to.
Then I saw a tutorial from Lesley D for ATC shrines over on Bella Creations
and decided to try it. I made two as mini theatres, one painted in pink, and the other made from dark brown *sugared* cardstock. They were fun to make!
And while I was on the balcony taking my pictures, I saw that one of the trees in the garden is turning green - what a lovely sight. It's still very cold, 1° outside just now, but the sun has been shining for a few days, and it really looks like spring is on its way!
And I was chosen as a *Ginger Gem* again for my *charms* entry - WOOHOO!!!
Thanks for looking, and have a great day!
