Hello 2017

Hello friends!

First of all let me start by wishing you all
a very happy, healthy and creative new year!

Secondly, let me apologise for being missing in action....
I would like to tell you that I spent the christmas period lying on a hot beach, sipping cocktails but the reality is that Ive been really busy working on some top secret projects....shhhh more on them in a couple of weeks!

So today I just wanted to share a quick make that I put together over the weekend....
(I am surprised it even got made as my desk is officially a disaster area! Each time I get motivated to clear it I get distracted and I add to the mountain of mess....butI work better in mess so its not too bad!)

If you are a regular follower of my blog you will know that I am a collector of old photographs and ephemera and I love to use them in my makes...
So I selected this lost soul, she kind of stuck out and fitted perfectly in this Idea-ology frame
I used lots of layers of gesso, texture paste, stencils,distress paints, distress crayons and substrates 
The old rusty keys are from my stash. I added rusty wire and a mini tag from Tim Holtz Tiny tabs and tag die, I also added Remnant rub-ons. 
The outside was framed with stitching and the Ideology frame was given the shabby/ grunge treatment!
As always please feel free to leave a comment, always great to hear from you!

(Don't forget to pop by Tim Holtz blog this week for lots of sneak peaks of new products being released at the Creativation show (formerly CHA)..for more info click here.)

As always please feel free to leave a comment....always great to hear from you!
I Will be back very soon
Have a great week
