Twinchie and Journal front

Hi All. What a wet and dark day it is here so far and isn't it nice to be able to look at a bright and cheerful screen and visit online friends. :) Thank you for visiting me as well.

At Twinchies Challenge Blog this week the theme is glass.

I used a small heart shaped mirror for my glass and mounted it on a red heart die cut and a twinchie shape that I coloured with Distressed inks in various colours. I added the little flower to cover up a chip in the glass-a solution for very problem so they say :) I took the photograph in the the window and you can see the reflection of the window frame.

Now to Use your Stuff where the theme is Lots of Colour

I made a front for my new journal  that will hopefully reflect some of the words on the outside and maybe even some of the colours.

I covered a piece of card the size of the front with a very crumpled, flowered serviette and well gessoed it and made it  even more crinkly. Then I cut-out shapes from my bits of card stash, using dies that came with my Cuttlebug way back when. They consist of the shapes surrounded by a delicate separate frame. I mixed and matched the shapes and frames to make a jumble of bright colours. The words were from here where you can get free images as well.

Take care and have a good day

Love Chrissie x
