Hi everyone, It was a miserable, muggy day here in West Sussex. As I am busy at the moment, making stock for my 2 markets this weekend, it didn't really matter.
The Saturday market is one I do every 2 months in a nearby village. As I have regular customers, I have to always have different things. The Sunday one is at a garden centre in Kent. About a 45 minute drive and we have to be there by 08.30 to set up. Husband is helping me with that one. So no lie-in for him! Never mind he is on holiday for 2 weeks.
We hope to be going up to Suffolk, near Beccles, where a friend of ours lives, for a few days. We haven't been to Suffolk. I did go to Norfolk quite a bit but that was years ago, as one of my sisters lived there.
These are a couple of boxes I made last week, which I will take on Sunday. The papers for the first one, were free with a magazine I think. I just tore the edges and added some Tea Dye Distress Ink to the edges.
The birdcage is a Mirror Box Die and I cut a little bird from a piece of paper from the Prima Songbird Collection and stuck him in the cage!
The 2 large pink flowers started life as white rose buds. I took them apart and sprayed them with a Tattered Angels pink mica spray. I then heated them with my heat gun which made the petals open into a rose flower. The other flowers are from my stash and behind them is a piece of tied lace.
The words I found on a sheet in my paper stash. From where they came, I have no idea! The butter fly is a KaiserCraft Background stamp. I made this box before my Lili of The Valley stamps had arrived. My next posting is a project made completely with their new stamps.
This is a little wooden box, that I am afraid the pictures do not show how it really looks. Even my husband commented on it!
The papers are from a Vintage Attic Treasures paper pad from Melissa Frances. A lovely pad of really pretty vintage papers. I made the flower from a strip of paper that I just snipped into and then rolled it around a flower centre. I added some Vintage Photo DI to the edges. The gold around the edges of the box, is Debbi Moore Metal Magic embossing Powder.
The butterfly is a Marianne Creatables die.
Thanks for stopping by and leaving your lovely comments. They are always so kind and a pleasure to read.
