A Couple of Crafty Makes ................

Hi everyone, I'm back again to show you a couple of crafty pieces I made for my home.  This first one is for Grace to hang her artwork on in her bedroom.  I brought some plaques from ebay which I painted cream.  This took a few coats then I cut some letters out using my e-craft, some felt flowers using a marianne die and some cardstock leaves which were also a marianne die.  I finished off the flowers with some pearls from my stash and I covered a peg with washi tape to finish and glued it and the felt flowers on with my hot glue gun to make sure they stay in place! Grace was very happy when I gave her this and it is hanging nicely in her bedroom now with a picture proudly displayed!

My second make is craft room sign which I brought from Ann Marie Designs at the NEC in november. I decorated the back with pretty paper from Crafter's Companion Sweet Treats CD and painted the letters in cream paint.  I finally added some felt flowers to finish it off.   This looks so pretty hanging on my craft room door.   

I think I have a painting bug at the moment as I've been very busy the last few days painting some dining chairs which I brought last year for £15.  They were dark brown wood but I'm busy painting them a lovely shade of cream at the moment.  I brought some lovely cushions to go on them yesterday which have a sweetie jars on them, I can't wait to get them finished now.  I will show you some picks when they are finished!

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Hugs Lynsey x
