Altered Box

I visit Michelle's blog  ITS SEW ME. Michelle and I keep in touch over email from time to time.
It is lovely how we can get to know each other in this online crafty community. 

Michelle has a cafty group that gets together. I noticed that each month the seem to do some sort of challenge. Last months challenge was to do an Altered Box. They were going  to use a brown paper mache' box from Spotlight. I had one in my craft room to use. I decided to join the challenge for some fun.
As my lovely friend had passed away I was not really up to it but on the weekend I got to creating.

 I painted it with a paint that has paper in it.
It takes a while to dry but the effect is really great.
I sprinkled some mother of pearl glitter on the top for some prettiness - we all love a bit of prettiness don't we?

These are paper roses and rosebuds.
I did this arrangment using craft glue

This is a series of stitcheries that I will be bringing out in the next few months

Thanks Michelle for giving me the opportunity to join in.. it was fun!

Im in the process of moving my craft room into a new room. For my webshop I needed a studio. I place to store all the fabrics and patterns and have abit of organisation.
So while I am doing this I am finding alot of things.

This above photo is of the design that I used to teach in my classes I used to run.

A closer look.

Have a great day.
