I logged in to add another post (last night 11.55pm) and was a little confused about the new layout that confronted me.  It look me a little while to suss out the new format and, as a consequence, yesterday's post is now today's post.......

I wanted to share with you another of my "altered" picture frames.

It is always interesting to explore new ways of using stamps - especially those  that are firm favourites.  In this case it is the Dandelion set from Lavinia Stamps and the script background stamp from Crafty Individuals.  I added a dragonfly and a bee (also from Lavinia) and the birds which are from a set by Tim Holtz. These were applied over a base coat of white acrylic paint.  This is a variation of a previously made frame posted here.

My friend Susy and I visited the Sincerely Yours craft show at Ingliston in Edinburgh last weekend. I purchased tubs of FlitterGlu and Dreamweaver embossing paste. I have been "playing" with these for a couple of days and will, hopefully, have something that is worthy to post soon. There is nothing like seeing products being demonstrated in real life to inspire you to have a go.

Those are lovely stamps Lilian. Never had a go with embossing paste - so many products, not enough time! xx

I love this frame Lilian ...... Just the sort of design you'd see in one of those unique gift shops on the high street. The neutral colour palette makes it so useable :0)
