An Old Frame

I have been having some fun with my airdry clay. 
It's quite relaxing, because if you don't like what you have made,
you just squash it in your hand and start again!!

 I have had this old wooden frame in my craft room
for ages, along with a few others. They were waiting for
me, to have the time to play with some ideas, to  make them 
look a lot better than they did. 

I gave it a base coat of Gesso and then a coat of grey paint.
Then came my crackle paint layer.

While that was drying, I made my roses with my Hearty Clay.
It was a first attempt at making the Calla Lily.

There we are, finished at last!!

Just a quick post and there are more sitting in my draft list!!

Have you got an Easter Egg? I haven't had one for years!!

I hope you are all staying home and safe.

My neighbour is in hospital with the Virus but appears
to be getting better. Everything crossed for him and his family.

Big hugs,

This is gorgeous, love the flowers. We don’t eat much chocolate though we love it but always have an Easter egg, the chocolate tastes so different
