Sunday 19 January 2014


Happy Sunday everyone, I hope you have been enjoying your day. I have been in the art room most of the day playing. I made some moulds which I ended up throwing away as they didn't do want I wanted. I will have to give that another try!

I then used some moulds I already had and made some hearts and roses to use on projects. I also played with some clay. 

Then my attention turned to my documented life journal which, I haven't touched yet. I added some extra paper to a couple of months and decorated the front. I was inspired to do this by Lorraine Bell which you can check out for yourself here for a very small fee. I will put up picture's later but want to get this post finished as I want to enter it into a challenge at Paper Artsy which you can see here.

So back to my plaque. I was thinking of getting my UTEE out today so this became the perfect project.

I aged my plaque with crackle glaze and then stamped some borders and corners from the hot picks range from paper artsy. Next I stamped my centre piece. I distressed round the edge. In this photo you can see that I didn't line up the corners as well as I could which breaks the symmetry. Further on you will see that I added embellishments to off set the distraction. 

Next I added some roses and and metal embellishment. I added some treasure gold in white fire to the embellishments

then my utee. 

This is a very quick blog but I was running out of time and my OH was calling to say dinner was ready.

  7. Lovely plaque Deb, love all the white space, looks really effective like an old painted tile. The gloss really makes it look vintage and shabby chic.
