Time to play

Today I decided to play, just mix it up and get out some inks and paints and experiment.  I had bought some Diane Reavely acrylics and the alcohol inks haven't seen the light of day for ages.  So this is the result:

The large peg is painted with pink and green acrylic from Art from the Heart.  I added Polka Doodles Kraft Papers from their new CD rom and then some pieces from La Paperie scrapbooking company.  I covered the clock face in Glossy Accents and wrapped some bakers twine around the peg and added a button.  I have magnetised the bag so it can go on the fridge.  I will enter this in the Allsorts challenge blog, even though it might not be acceptable.  It has not to be square, but it aint a card.(Not a good photo, it's much bolder)
The photo frame was from the pound shop, so I alcohol inked it and added a Prima pear swirl ,a metal butterfly and a vellum heart.  It'll go in the little treasures box for my Macmillan fayre in July.
It's a gorgeous day so me and niece no 2 have been to the garden centre.  It has a craft shop too, so I bought some Tonic floral punches and a few craft necessities.  We had pop and chocolate torte too.  I bought Lacey a strawberry plant so the OH can teach her to nurture things.
I am now going to have a glass of wine in the garden.
Catcha later
