Crafting with friends

Spent a lovely day on Monday crafting with three friends, we had decided to do something with canvas board and corrugated cardboard, everyone's ended up being different, this is mine...


As usual took photo late afternoon, so colours not too good, and some of the embellishments don't show up too well.  The houses are cut free hand out of corrugated cardboard, papers are from Lost and Found stack and Paperartsy Thorndon Hall, trees are one of T!m's dies, out of TSS metal in copper and silver, the metal frame in the middle has been altered with acrylic paint, the number is UTEE in white, then swiped over with black acrylic, butterfly is Wendy Vecchi, stamped onto grunge paper, stamped again onto Heat Parts, and heated up and shaped, fence I've done the peeled paint technique and attached with T!m's tiny attacher, the little red heart is one I made from UTEE.  The canvas is painted in trad tan with some script stamped on, then pool and gold acrylic paint.  I've just got to decide now whether to put a chain or wire through the top to hang it up with.
