Bits Of Slate......Or Is It?!!!!

I hope you are keeping well and safe, in this 
awful time we are having this year.

It's just surreal and can't wait for it to go away!!

I am trying to do different things, now that I have the time to play!!

I do like the look of slate but a bit pricey for what 
I would do with it. So I thought I could try to make
something to look like slate. So this is what I made!!

The bigger flowers I made with clay and the small roses are from 
Hobbycraft. The cream fillers are from Anna-Marie Designs.

This was the first one I tried to make. The flowers are from Hobbycraft.
They do sell some flowers with tiny beads around the centre
of the flowers. As I have had minute beads, in a few different 
colours for years, I would add some myself!!

Well today, I have finished painting a drawer set, which I keep
my distress inks in. I had one side not finished!!
Don't ask me why, as it was bought over 4 years ago!!!
It was my first purchase in Beccles in Suffolk.

Thank you for stopping by and leaving lovely messages. 
Just what we need at the moment.
Thank you, to you all that left me kind messages on my last post.

Big hugs,
Keep safe,

These are beautiful Carol. They do look like slate but I'm sure they must be a lot lighter for hanging too. Stay safe x

These are fab. The flowers are lovely. I have had days where I haven’t felt like cardmaking which is unlike me bug I think it is just so unsettling. I have been doing lots of cross stitch though. Stay safe x

Hi Carol. These are lovely. I particularly like the first sample.
Hope everything is well with you and the family.
Keep crafting, you should have a good stock by the time this blows over.
Take care
Love Carole :) xx

Hi Carol

These really do look like slate .. .. I love the flowers you have created on the first one. Just beautiful!

I love how you turn your hand to so many different crafts.

Hope you are OK and can get your hands on some of the essential supplies that aren't staying on supermarket shelves very long.

Love Jules xx
