I have crafted in some form or the other for 30 years plus and have demonstrated for lots of well known companies including TV work for a well known craft channel.Many of you might know me from working in Craft Corner. The craft shop which has plenty of crafts from Paper and Scrap to knitting and sewing.
Here is a project you might like to try, using mount board to create a base and frames, add bits and pieces which you find interesting, include some photo's and hey presto you have a lovely collage of your favorite thing to hang or display. I have used clock pieces, stamped images and photo's. These were of us on holiday about 14 years ago in Scotland, the blue colour in all the photo's was my starting point, distress inks to colour, die cuts and brads to finish. Hope you like the idea.
This treasure box was made at the Make 'n' Take workshops. I thought it would be nice to make something completely from scratch. The ladies who came really made a good job and everything fitted well together. I hope they can use this workshop as a way of creating other interesting projects. I love this sort of project as you can experiment with lots of different techniques and create something to your own taste or specifically for a certain person.
