FLEUR

At Gingersnaps we are on our penultimate Challenge and have just noticed that this is my 42nd project as part of the Design Team.........just one more to go..........  The Challenge this week is GC143 Last Century........more details on the Gingersnap Creations Blog.  We have been very kindly sponsored by Retro Cafe Art Gallery and have to tell you the images are gorgeous which made it very difficult to choose as I wanted them all.........lol


My DT piece is a Beermat Hanging...........most pieces on this have been recycled apart from the great images.
Used 2 Beermats, 3 Hexagon Game pieces, Black Gesso, Beads, Ribbon, open Hessian and Lace.  The images are numbered DP122 and CV10 (Retro Cafe Art Gallery)

These hangings make great little gifts and especially for those of us who are on a budget.  How would you portray the last century..............why not give it a go and if you would like some more inspiration there are some smashing pieces from the DT. 

Take care and have a happy day.  Hugs Annette x
