Fly girl...

Hello friends

I hope you've had a great week!
The weather has been pretty bonkers here in the UK for April!
Yesterday I drove in glorious sunshine, followed by hail, snow, sleet then thunder and rain....
whoever has borrowed the sunshine please bring it back!

I thought I would share a little vintage make Ive recently made, using one of the vignette panels and some of the sticky back textile surfaces....( I just love this linen effect)
I stuck the linen to the panel then using a couple of Tim's stencils I applied randomly Ranger texture paste.  When the paste was dry I rubbed over the top using distress crayons
I cut out the girl  from the found relatives pack and stuck her to one of my old vintage envelope, I added some remnant rub-ons and lots of stitching 
I also added some idea-ology and some of my own vintage finds....

The ribbon was coloured using hickory smoke distress spray ( my new favourite colour!) 
The butterfly is from one of tims ephemera packs and the word fly is from the 
chit chat book ( Idea-ology)
To finish I hung it from the lovely vintage hanger ( also Idea-ology)

I hope you like her?
As always feel free to leave a comment, its great to know you popped by

Im really hoping the weather improves overnight, as myself and some very fabulous friends are doing a 5k mud run first thing tomorrow morning in aid of cancer research UK..... 
( yes we are all completely bonkers!)
(Please have your fingers crossed for us that we get round in one piece!)

Have yourselves a great weekend!
bye for now 


(P.S. If you wish to buy any Idea-ology or stencils hop over to Art from the heart here they have a great selection)
