Texture Paste, Paint and a BIG mess.


Well from making one tiny little thing how could I end up with such a massive mess on my desk. I should not really be making anything. I should be planning and writing, but I got fed up with that very quickly and all those notes are now buried under the mess that this made on my desk.
Die cut shapes using old bits of chipboard saved from the back of pads and other packaging, texture paste applied and then stamped into, and once dry painted and embossed over. Die cut grungeboard wings added to the back, odd bits of charms and a paper rose dipped in embossing powder add to the front.
I did this as while browsing I saw the Simon Says stamp challenge this week is embrace the old, and as this is made mostly with old stuff it will fit the bill.
The picture is removable I just put it there for photo purposes as it looked plain with the space empty. I will put a personal photo in it when I hang it up.
