Home Sweet Home.....

All done, this one uses Sizzix dies Flower layers No4 and Home sweet Home phrase. I think I've found a solution to covering those not very nice rings... old book pages and white acrylic paint or gesso! Tear the pages into long slim triangles and stick to the ring with the paint.Some of the text will show through which is nice for an old weathered effect, grunge it up with some Antique Linen re-inker.

On Monday at Efemera Ink's meeting I think I'm going to do another using Mr Tim's tattered flower die and old book pages... and maybe some kind of quote in the centre of each flower...Hopefully I'll post a piccie of everyone elses wreaths too.



LTDO's challenge this week is beads and buttons...........
