Steampunk Christmas Tree Workshop

Hi Everyone,

It is hard to believe it is December already, the weeks are just flying in!

I was over in Edinburgh yesterday at Stampers Grove for a Steampunk Christmas Tree workshop and I thought I would share all the lovely trees made by all who attended πŸ™‚

I didn’t manage to get a picture of Rita or Isobel’s trees as they left before I got around to taking a picture of them but they looked lovely πŸ™‚

Postman Swap Challenge

Happy Bank Holiday Monday everyone πŸ™‚

Taking full advantage of an extra day off work I headed up to my shed early doors this morning to create a few bits n pieces.. One of which is this fun little book box below…

A couple of weeks ago I recieved another envelope from the Postman Swap that a few of us crafting gals took part in, and this month’s envelope came from Sam, which was packed with fin things to use…

I managed to use up the sheet music paper, playing cards, admit one ticket, some wire mesh a chipboard gear and a metal key charm!

The stuff I used from my own stash to make this was a little chipboard book box, texture paste and sticky metal tape stuff and some sprays and distress stains and alcohol inks.

This is what the book looked like before.. I picked this up at a recent craft fair from the store Indigoblu.com

I gave it a coat of linen acrylic paint

then started to stick things down and embelish it ..

I used the wire mesh to create texture on the moulding paste ..

Thanks for the postie swap this month sam… i loved setting myself this wee challenge πŸ™‚
