Hello everyone and a happy Sunday to you all. The summer holidays are going well at the moment the kiddies have yet to mutter those fatal words "I'm bored" so that's good. We've been having a few lovely dry days so they've been able to get out in the garden. Not sure the neighbours at the bottom of the garden are glad about it with the amount of balls that have gone their way in the past two days so no doubt they're praying for rain!!!
Anyway, I just thought I would share with you some gorgeousness of the Whimsy variety today. I've made a sort of picture frame, well really its a small square 6 x 6 canvas and rather than use the front I turned it over and used the back of it. I used a stamp from the beautiful stamp set 'Apple of my Eye' by Monika Martinson which was from the newest July release and can be purchased from the Whimsy Store HERE. Its a lovely set and really versatile and there's some great sentiments in it too and I've used one on my frame.
Lets get a couple of piccies up to show you:-
I covered the whole thing with papers. They're ones I've printed off at some point so got a feeling they're NitWits but not 100% sure. It was quite a challenge getting them folded neatly around the edges. Added some ribbon, lace and pearls to pretty it up some and a few flowers.
I decided the stamp was crying out to be layered and I've seen Mariska's gorgeous works of art and followed her tutorial here. I must say its quite time consuming but well worth the effort.
