Facebook candy - I won!

Last week I put a comment on the Facebook page of A sprinkle of Imagination as there was the chance to win a Graphic 45 collection of papers, and guess what - I won.

The papers arrived a couple of days later and here they are in all their glory.


Beautiful aren't they?  Now to make something with them.

Dug out this set of hanging fames yesterday and gave them an undercoat of Gesso before picking some papers and edging the frames in matching acrylic paints - as you can see I have more than a few types of paint from superstore match-pots, posher Fresco Finish and even posher Lumieres.  Decided on black, gold and copper and picked the papers to match.


Very much a work in progress at present but I did spend an hour in there this afternoon sticking papers on and deciding on some decorations.  If you want to see stage three then pop back later in the week.

Beautiful day today and very busy - tidying the garden, ironing and crafting now which do I like best.......

Enjoy the rest of your weekends.

Hi Ann,

Congrats on the win! Very cool. Your project looks very interesting - I will return to see how it progresses.

Poor Katie dog has something wrong with her paw today. She didn't come to bed last night, which is quite unusual. I'm staying close at hand to see how she manages. I have a feeling I'll be going to the vet first thing tomorrow morning.

Hugs,
Kay
