I’ve got such a lot of things to do at the moment that my hobby of making, drawing and crafting is taking a back seat.
But I have been doing a few bits and bobs, a little granny square crochet whilst watching TV and last Sunday I started doing a little work on a small box, it’s not finished but here’s what I’ve done so far…
I’ve been assisting in sorting out my mother-in-law’s home and have found a few interesting things, this little box seemed to be crying out for a little upcycle . It had a picture of an Isle of Man coast and a weird green lily of the valley or something kind of splodged over it, so I rubbed it down with fine sandpaper and the design revealed itself to be just a piece of paper, not the pyrography I had first thought.
So once I had it nice and smooth I started to think about what I wanted to do, I am doing quite a bit of research about Art Deco at the moment (new project to come soon!) and think I will do something on that theme…
So, as you can see the slide show above, I pressed the indent and then stained the whole thing, I know it’s only scratch cover but that is what I found in the cupboard under the sink…now it’s time to think what else I am going to do….I’ll show you soon.Thanks for reading, I’ll be back next week.
