' Home Sweet Home '

Hi, this scheduled post is my second project this month for Happy Daze, I chose to alter a Black Ikea Photo Frame, you know the ones I mean..........the cheapy plasticky ones.


Products used Suzi Blu -  La Belle stamp, Gesso, Acrylic Paints, Serviette, Webster Pages, Watercolour Paints, multi matt medium  and the rest from stash.

Am so in love with this Suzi Blu -  La Belle stamp as she is so versatile.  If you remember on 3rd June when I used her last I cut off her hat and gave her a bandana.  This time have paper pieced her hat, I have many looks in mind for this fab stamp she is now available at the Happy Daze online shop.

Wishing you a happy and crafty week, Hugs Annette xx

PS Thank you for all your brilliant support, am hoping to be back by the end of the week if all goes well. xx
