Sewing and Buttons at TioT



Hello, time to tell you about the  new challenge at Try it on Tuesday with this fortnight is 'Sewing and Buttons',
I decided to do something similar to a project I'd seen a while ago on Hels Sheridan's blog.  My frame is actually a recycled chocolate box and after applying a couple of coats of Gesso I used the Doily stencil embossing paste and then PaperArtsy Taupe paint, rubbed back with a baby wipe. I've had the sewing themed papers for a while and unfortunately they have lost their packaging.
The rest of the DT have some fabulous inspiration for you so please pop over to the main blog for all the details.
I am entering this at:
  Altered Eclectics - Anything Goes but cards
  Scrap it Girl - Sewing and Stitching

That's it for now,  have a great day,
Avril xx
