In more detail!

As you can see from the cards in my previous post I have re-jigged them from a class I did earlier, 'cause I just loved the papers and stamps
...and I can!
I also made a wee tag which was very simple to do but today I wanted to show you the canvas and brooch in more detail.

The framed canvas was purchased from my "local craft shop for local people!"  Actually it is also the home of Sugar Nellie stamps but is known locally as Papercraft's Boutique.
I have used teal acrylic paint on the frame then Ranger distress crackle paint Picket fence. 
I also sanded it a wee bit as I wanted it to look really old and distressed, then I inked lightly with Distress ink Vintage photo and sealed with Inkssentials Glue 'n' Seal.
On the canvas I covered with Distress stain Broken china then edged with Vintage photo too.
The papers I have used as mentioned in earlier posts are from My Mind's eye Stella and Rose range.
The stamps are Hero Arts Whimsical House and Finding joy.
I have also used some Ranger glossy accents to finish.

For the brooch I have used Tim Holtz textured grungeboard followed by Distress stain Broken china to which I added Perfect pearls Blue raspberry and Sour apple.
The flower is from Hero Arts stamps Layered flowers.
I have added jewellery spaces and beads with fine wire which I twisted and threaded through the flower and attached to a pin on the back.
I also distressed the edges with Vintage photo ink.
With both items I used StazOn jet black ink.

At the moment I am just finishing off  working with some of my whisky cards but I hope to be back with more crafting in the next couple of days.
One child back to school today and the other next week.  Whoop!
As the summer holidays come to an end I am left wondering
"did I miss all the good weather"
Or is it just me?
