About the Artist

My photo
I just love crafting, the messier the better. Have been crafting all my days but in the last 10 years have been doing more and more. My obsession began with making cards and from there I have tried many different forms of crafting. Great fan of Tim_Holtz love all his products would love to own them all one day. Graphic 45 is another must have for me and again would love to have it all. And then there is Prima well what can a girl say, just simply stunningly beautiful. Really enjoying the vintage, shabby chic and steampunk styles which are very much in vogue at the minute. Love Lace and Pearl trim, you might be seeing a fair bit of it all on here. xx Please keep calling past and enjoy my crafting journey with me. Great Big Huge Hugs Becca xxx

CraftyHands Challenge Blog - Challenge #3 - Sparkle 'n Bling

Its time for Challenge #3 already over at Crafty Hands Challenge Blog.  



A winner has been chosen and named from Challenge #2 'Vintage' so if you haven't already why not pop over and check it out.

This fortnights Challenge theme is 'Sparkle 'n Bling' now who doesn't like a bit of that?

This is my DT project I altered a picture frame and 'Sparkled 'n Blinged' it up :-)



This is an oval picture frame that I picked up last year on my fantastic trip to The States.  From the fantabulous store, Michaels.  Oh the fun I had shopping in there on more than one occasion, much to my husbands eventual annoyance (oops!!).  Anyway I painted the whole frame white and then added some Stampendous Frantage in Shabby Pink in 4 sections, I really do like this stuff and again from another wonderful store in The States, Jo-Anns :-).  I then hot glued some irredecent flat backed pearls around the centre of the frame and added some bling around the bare outer edges.  I added one of my handmade lace flowers to the bottom topped with a wonderful Bling centre.  I created flower clusters with some pink and white flowers and some sparkly white leaves and a bling butterfly for good measure.  I cut up a vintage image napkin and added this lovely image which I think just finishes off the overall effect beautifully.

The prize for this fortnight kindly provided by Lisa, owner of Crafty Hands
