Hi guys well I have been playing with an empty,kitchen roll,so here is the finished,result.

I took,some paper and rolled then added some,stencils to it,distressed it,then stuck it around,the roll. The wings,are done,with gold metallic,paint added swirls,and owls. The skeleton,I painted then added crackle paint on top,the base of the roll is an old,top of a jar of coffee covered with tin foil,then painted. The top is a large fragment paper underneath,then added some embellishments.

Plus here is a book I have made for a friend on FB totally different than my first creation and very girly for me lol 

This book is made from an old,box which I took apart to use for the covers.Then i have added,flowers etc,to the front,and made pages for the inside,which you can add tags etc too.

Hope you like what I have created,love massive hugs Cherylxxxxx

 Hi guys yet another post from me,I know you sit back in amazement ha ha.

Anyway as I said I am on the team at Not Just Cards,and we are given images,from sponsors and we choose what to do with them for our first challenge we had a few images,so thought it best to do another post to show each one off.

  So I picked this fab image from Auroa wings,and made another frame and colored the image with pencils,and pro-markers,

So here it is,

The frame is from TCP,along with the embellishments,the flowers I cut out,and decoupaged the frame is a mixture of crackle paste orange and,brownish,color.

So if you would like,to play along in our very first challenge,remember its always anything goes,you can enter cards,but we would love to see if you can come up with something different,

          love and hugs to you all,been over to visit a  lot of you but some blogs for some reason will not load,and I get an error message so I will pop over again this afternoon.

Morning guys,so sorry I have not been to see any of you,but I have had,a viral infection. It started with that I thought,cold sores on my face,then they just would not go and got much worse. Then my ears became infected,then my hands and neck. So went to the doctors,and she said my immune system was low so I came away with cream,anti bio-tics,and steroids.

All I want to do is sleep,so tired all the time which is so annoying.

Anyway,enough of me,today is a new challenge over at That Craft Place. 

The theme is Nautical,I was stumped then came up with this idea,which I created in craft artist. Then used embellishments of course from TCP.

 I made a wall hanging then turned it into a calender,the sentiment I have had for a while. I got it from Google,then I just add my own odd words to it if it needs,it.,
The little bottle is filled with sand.

So if you want to play along,this week at TCP please pop over HERE the DT have come up with some crackers again this week.

It was my daughters birthday this week,and I asked Lisa to design me an owl clock as my daughter loves owls. And this is what I did with it,Lisa loved it.

The lovely Lisa owner of TCP now has her own,machine were she can cut anything,you desire so if you would like to know more and see the things that are in Lisa's shop please pop over to the main blog and all the links are there.
The quality is fantastic,hugs to each and everyone of you
love Cherylxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Morning guys,well over at That Craft place this week the theme is,Autumn or steam punk or both.

The girls have made some stunning creations,I went for Autumn colors,with a bit of steam punk too,

So this is what I created using an old,photo frame I had

one photo frame glass removed.
viva croco,crackle paint.
an old photo I bought on FB.
sentiment available from TCP
Key also available from TCP
Dress form TCP
Large fragment from Tim holtz

with the paints I used,I mixed 2 colors together,and underneath I painted,gold to create the shine.
The dress form,I also painted with the croco,then I stuck the dress form onto card so I could layer the paint.
Then I added the fragment over the top of the picture and adhered with glue.

Morning guys well I have yet another dress form for you again all items are from TCP.

This time I decided to,play with some sand,from the garden I got some in a tub,dried it over night,then put some of my texture paste into a pot added some sand,and paint. Hey presto,it came out great and gave some lush texture,the bottom half i created using a net from some oranges,hugs Cherylxxx

The base is again an old wooden stamp which I removed the image from,and I added some,paste to this,then added some sprays and paints,

                               creative fingers anything goes
                            treasuretimes anything goes
                          crafting when we can make your own background
