About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

Three Little Houses - the Sequel!!

A quick post today and just when you thought it was safe ....... here I am with three more of those little houses!! Have to say - they've been very popular! 
As before, I painted the wood with Magnolia emulsion - this time with a base coat of Pomegranate, then sanded the edges down. With the first one, I used Eco Green Copper paint for the mat, and Aged Mahogony for the sentiment (Creative Expressions Thoughtful Sentiments). The beads are from a broken piece of jewellery - and the little heart button from my stash.
The second one has a base of Orchid paint, and the mat is painted with Pomegranate. A little heart brad and two pearl hearts finished it off.
And for the last one, the base coat was Lake, and the mat Blue Patina. Another brad and a few buttons for the finishing touches.

Hope you have been tuning in to the Pick of the Week with Leann!! I have been busy beavering away on all sorts of things - and in a very brief lull today, I have managed to get one order made!! Still have 3 challenge projects to make along with other 'items' that I am working on.

See you soon!!
