I am REALLY enjoying my 2 days off....I promised myself no housework (now, those of you that know me will understand that this is very difficult (lol)...) but just crafting.....
Yesterday I spent ALL day making my Nan's Christmas pressie....now I cant show it yet (I doubt at 87 she reads this but I don't like to assume)...but I hope she will like it. I have to be REALLY organised as I have family in both the USA and NZ so I cant do a 16:00 Christmas Eve dash to buy all my pressies like some do!!
So, in a bid to clear out older stash I finally altered this calendar...
I coloured it with inks, distressing and sponging through some sequin waste adding some foil on the edges and sprinkling water to create a little more interest.
I stamped Tempus Fugit (time flies) and embossed on the bottom and added a stamped pocket watch onto a tomato puree tube which I added some grunge wings to and covered the watch face with sepia glossy accents.
I know its nearly the end of the year...but thankfully its a perpetual calendar so its not a lost cause!
I made lots more but its now dark so I need to wait until its light to get some decent shots (I'll blog them later).
One thing I have made recently is some air force inspired cards...since its 11/11/11 I thought it may be appropriate to share them.
I know a lot of forces personnel (my childhood home town used to have a RAF base) and I always think of those around now.
