….a pocket full of posy’s!

Have you seen the gorgeous new Posy’s that co-ordinate perfectly with  the Chanteuse collection?

I have to admit I fell head over heels in love with them when I first saw them…

I  also really love the trend at the moment that seems to be popping up in papercraft land  of using silhouettes in different projects.

As a happy co-incidence, one of my favourite views of my beautiful babies is their profiles. I love looking at their little buttons noses and little baby chins. I know they will change before my eyes, so I thought I would combine the silhouette trend and my middle baby’s profile to create this project.

Framed with Chanteuse

April 24, 2011

Happy Easter. I hope you have had your share of chocolate!

Lesley here to share some projects using Chanteuse.

The new BTP Ornate Frame is gorgeous and when I saw it I knew I wanted to turn it into a blackboard. I love things which are useful and beautiful!

I painted the inner part of the frame with blackboard paint. For the outside of the frame I painted with brown paint, crackle medium and then eggshell. I wasnt happy with the look so added some more brown paint with a damp cloth. I then applied some pitashio paint. With a damp cloth I rubbed some of the paint off on different parts. I then added some colour mist. I kept going until I was happy with the look! I then decorated with the fabulous wooden flourishes, flowers and patterned paper.
