Fun with Art Parts

Well, what can I say?

I'm in love again!

I went to my lovely local craft shop - Let's Create- in Coningsby on Saturday. Jo had arranged for Hels Sheridan to come along and demonstrate her wonderful work with Wendy Vecchi's "Art Parts" and Tim Holzt's Distress Ink/Stain etc.

I was hooked from the word go, so I used up all of my limited funds to buy some "essentials". The stamp set I really wanted had sold out, but Hels kindly gave me some of her pre-stamped flowers so that I could at least have a go.
I went home, made a quick bolognaise (thanks for the suggestion Maria), and started to play with my goodies.
Not having many of the nik-naks needed for this kind of craft, I had to improvise. My lovely hubby has a saying for this...............
"It's not bodging, it's utilising all available resources"
............needless to say I had LOTS of fun, and yes I am in love ALL OVER AGAIN :o)

This little table - my very first make- stands 7" tall to the top of the butterfly wing.

I then made this lttle frame. it is a mere 4" high.

Those roses are such fun to make, and rest asured, as soon as Jo has them back in stock, I WILL be buying the stamp.
