2nd post today - My wall hanging for The Geordieland Craft Meet!

Yes - it's me again. Unheard of - posting twice in the one day LOL.

Ross is now awake so this will be a quick one. Then I will be off to stop him destroying what is left of the house!

Below is a wall hanging that I have made to swap at a craft meet in Geordieland. I met some ladies through Docrafts website chat forum and this will be our 3rd meet. Cazro kindly arranges this meet, where we have breakfast and then CRAFT ALL DAY! Isn't that good. We have demos that some of the crafters organise and we get to learn lots of new things. it's on 11th September and I can't wait!

The wall hanging was made with some inspiration from Craft Stamper Magazine (for which I have a wee subscription heehee). I'm quite please with it and I hope whoever receives it at the meet will also like it too. The frame is made from mountboard and painted with acrylic paints. I then stamped a crackle effect onto it and then coloured again with alcohol inks.

The first square is a stamp from Prima Go Green Concepts. I glossy accented the dragonfly and added a dragonfly brad and a flower brad that has been coloured with alcohol inks.

The second square is a Crafty Individuals image that I coloured with distressing inks then glossy accented the flower. I then added a fragment (which is stained on the back with distresing ink). I added some glitter to the outside of the image and scraped some back off to distress it a bit. I then added some shells that I got for free from Sands of Luce beach in Stranraer (don't you just love nature).

The third square is a jolee that I found in my craft drawer. I have distressed it with distressing inks and added some gems.

The fourth square is again a Crafty Individuals image coloured witrh distressing inks and glossy accented. I then used alcohol inks on a slide mount and added some gems to the slide mount once dry. I placed the image into the slide mount and added it to the frame, then added some flowers with little gems for their centres.

The fifth square is a sentiment that has been distressed and coloured with alcohol inks. I then adherd it to the frame and adhered some gem stones to the frame (also free from nature - same place as above:oD) with silicon glue.

Last but not least, the sixth square. It again is a Craft Individuals image. I have coloured it with distressing inks and glossy accented the floer. The key is a stamp from Prima Go Green Concepts, which I have again glossy accented. I then added some gems to finish it off.
I'm really please with the way it has turned out.
I'm off now. Hope to get some time this avo to do a few crafty bits n bobs.
See you soon I hope!
