Would you credit it, now try as I may none of the pictures will up load for me, so here is my update just to let you know I am still here and not left blog land just yet. When I can sort this out I will be back with pictures, perhaps for another project.
Well blogger friends I am afraid I have been missing for a little while due to a few issues really.
Mr Mojo decided to do a round the world trip leaving me without a thought. My shoulder is still not very good and I am now having physio and waiting to go on a 6 weeks Shoulder Course ( wish it was craft workshops instead but they don't do them on the NHS it seems)
Thank goodness I have my Ebug.
My tablet is driving me nuts this week, first it won't charge, then it charges but drops the charge in a couple of minutes. Isn't technology a wonderful thing until it goes wrong! Today I can't get out of the front door , no joke, it unlocks but it is stuck at the top. I presume the hook at top is not releasing possibly because it has expanded due to the glorious weather we are having. Poor Mr H cannot understand why we have to go out through the back door.
Anyway onto my offering for the lovely Hel's Sunday challenge, Patterned Papers.
I have used 3 MDF shapes and covered them all with paper. The last one is paper pieced with lots of left over bits of paper.
Starting with the top one I added paper with vintage roses on it ,really pretty I stamped the sentiment, added a wooden flourish, a metal butterfly and the rose. I made the flower from Tim H tattered die, l used a plain paper and added distress ink Victorian velvet around the edges. Then I cut some leaves and put them all in the meltpot. I also added a little gold paste on edges of rose, and a small strip of crochet ribbon along the bottom.
The middle mdf also has a piece of patterned paper as a base and I have added some rock candy distress to the left corner. I added a strip of card, added some ribbon, and a cameo at top left. Bottom left is a little lock. On the right hand side is some beads , a hessian heart, steamed with the sentiment 'Follow your Heart' . I added a bit of red promarker to high light, added the keys and a crochet rose and leaf.
The last piece is made up of paper piecing . I added the pieces and went round the edges with a fine pencil. I added a few based, a cameo and frame, a butterfly made from kraft card, stamped in black and embossed then cut around. I added the words to the bottom right. I used jute cord to put it all together.
Well a bit of a long post today, take care and I hope you like my project xxx
