Best of friends....

Hello friends

Hope you are all good 
Many thanks for the lovely comments on my last post....I really appreciated each and everyone ...

Wow!September has been so busy for me....lots of things happening, my family seem to like September for their birthdays so there's been lots of celebrating....and cake....lots of cake!
So I've not had a lot of time to create, but I did manage to finish off this piece that had been sat on my desk for what seems like ages.....

I used lots of Tim Holtz distress paints, stamps and an Idea-ology frame....the photo is a vintage one from my collection.
I created a patchwork from off cuts of failed attempts ( I never throw anything away!) 
The background is made up from splashes of distress paints, Remnant rub-ons and some stamping using Tim's Mixed media 2 set and Halftone/rings set

I added lots of stitching with my trusty sewing machine.....although its no longer white! 
To finish I framed the photograph using an Idea-ology frame and coloured it using a sharpie pen.

Right my mission this afternoon is to clear my desk, its shamefully over crowed with "stuff"
I really struggle to be organised.....
As always feel free to leave a comment

Hope to back soon with another make
Have a great week
