Post Midnight Ramblings...

Good morning! Here in the UK it is 1.39am and I thought that was just the right time to blog. I should be well into my third obscure dream by now...
Still working hard on the CH course. Today's offering is my own take on a mini-project from the course. Just wanting to post some pictures of my paper wreath as I have decided to it enter it into the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge. This week's challenge it is all about layers and as you can see, I think we can safely say I've managed a few of those. It is a great way to use up lots of scraps. My ongoing love of blues and browns continues...

I have suspended a Memory Frame in the centre stamped on both sides with alcohol inks and Stazon. The glass is actually just one piece - a TH glass fragment which is nice and chunky - as I didn't have the right size memory glass. I just sanded the edges until it fitted into the frame - and there you go!
The words under the butterfly say Forget-me-not.

Then I also made a rose from silver metal. I embossed it with two designs, added some blue alcohol inks, followed by some snow white dabber paint and then I sanded it to get a sort of tarnished look. Then I cut the leaves free hand to get the right proportions.


It was quite a bit of work getting it all together, but I enjoyed it and I will soon be hanging it in my converted loft bedroom. It is not the easiest thing to capture on camera but I hope you can enjoy it too.
All the best with the challenge everyone!

Sleep well,

Sarah.
