A Bit of Rubbish and a Pendant

Hi, reusing is such fun, this little book was originally the back of a Shopping List, the thick cardboard bit.

The Front

The Back
Inner
Folded it in half, modge podged it, then used a paper napking to decorate then modge podged again, decorated from stash (the Rabbit image is from Pringle Hill Studio),  then used a Gold Paint Dabber to edge.  Attached the pink ric rak and filled with watercolour paper.  Kept the watercolour paper loose so it could be taken out and used without hindrance plus more could be added if required.


Plus have been making pendants again, this one used 2 circle hardboardy things (to give a bit more weight) which I glued together. Printed the picture onto a canvas sheet, sprinkled on some silver mica beads finished off with Glossy Accents and Gold Paint dabber for the edges.  The pendant attachment came from Happy Daze as did most of the products used in this piece.

 Just in case you wondered the back has been painted with Gold Paint Dabber and sealed with Sepia Accents which gives a nice finish to the back.

Now have to get back to painting the Flora Bowley way, which is huge fun, but must cook the lunch first............why is there never enough time in a day to do all you want to do.......

Catch up with you later.  Take care and enjoy your day, Hugs Annette x
