Weeds can be loved for Creative Expressions

I've been a poorly blogger hence the missing posts for a couple of weeks. But the good news is I think I'm back on the road to recovery, and therefore back on the blog!  I have lots of crafty things to post. So watch this space!

We've been given a bumper package of goodies from Creative Expressions this month and I have a head full of ideas to make with them. Here is my first using the wonderful new stencil from That Special Touch - Daisy Silhouette. I've used Dylusions Inks through the Daisy stencil on a book page, I love that grungy speckled look. I edged the page with Peeled Paint and Vintage Photo Distress Ink, then got the sewing machine out and ran a straight stitch around the edge twice.


I backed the book page with black card and stamped out a sentiment onto white card and cut it out. I then edged the words with Vintage Photo DI, and then edged it again with a black Adirondack Dabber.


I wrapped the bottom of the book page in string and attached a small garden trowel charm.  


 Keep your eyes peeled for some exciting news going up on the Creative Expressions blog and Facebook page next week, it involves blog hops and lots of prizes!

Have a fantastic weekend, mine is going to be very exciting, but I'll tell you more about that next week!
