Shabby Chic letter R


Hello, how is your weekend going? I hope your all well. I see I am almost at 200 followers gosh, I will have to start thinking about putting a little candy together. I love all my followers each one of you give me confidence you may not all comment but I continually grow and I hope that is because you like popping back and seeing what I am up to ;0)


So I have made another letter ;0) and  thought I would go all shabby. What theme should I do next? any suggestions? Well I got some lovely paint and covered it in metallic gold then a lovely off white pink colour it crackled a little and I sanded a little to see some of the gold underneath, then I went a head and added lots of bit's n bobs.


I really like these frames, how versatile they are. you can paint them cover them in DEP and all sorts of things as in my last post. I really enjoyed making the lace flower, but I can't be sure if it's a little too much? I haven't seen any challenges that I can fit this in to let me know if you see one. I was rather lucky yesterday my letter A fit in to lots ;0) well have a wonderful Sunday, I Love the Sabbath day, thanks for your comments and visits. Love Dawn xx


Items Used:- Ornamental frames, Distress Glitter & ticket Tim Holtz. White frame, Melissa Frances. Card board frame & Leaf Papermania. Rub ons, Basic Grey. Stickers, Violette Paints, Crown and Ranger Dabber. Lace, ribbon and button Stash.

this is beautiful Dawn! love everything about it! to answer your question about my camera n=and shooting fireworks I have a point and shoot Cannon Powershot and I say on the ground on my butt and rested my elbows on my knees so I made a human tripod and used the "fireworks" setting and shot about 70 pics and I got about 40 good ones. I just kept shooting and holding as still as I could LOL!
