Collection No 5

Hello friends

Hope you are all good!
I've not had the best start to February.....
We've had an un-welcome visitor in our home AKA The Lurgy!
Its been very quiet as I have Laryngitis, Yuk, (although my family are enjoying the peace!)
Hoping its finally on its way back to where it came from!
 ( btw a big thank you for all the lovely messages on my Facebook/insta pages)

Today I want to share a Panel frame from Idea-ology that Ive been working on....
As you all know I love to create grunge, so this was right up my street!
 I used lots of gesso, distress paints and distress crayons to get that grunge look!
I then embellished it with lots of Idea-ology and some of my own vintage finds
The word 'collection' is from the New Idea-ology quote chips, I added some stitching to mine
The base is one from the base boards (also Idea-ology) I grunged this up using paints distress crazingand distress crayons, then I added a few remnant rub-ons 
I coloured the salvaged doll with alcohol inks in espresso and pebble, gave her some wings from the ephemera pack and crowned with that cool crown.  She is framed in an Idea-ology baroque frame
I hope you like what Ive created, please feel free to leave a comment, I really appreciate each and everyone.

If you have Facebook I have a  "Little Shabby shed page" (link on sidebar) You can keep up to date with all my blog posts there too!
Thanks so much for popping by!
Have a great week!
