Try it on Tuesday-Things with Wings

Hello Everyone. Nice to have you visit Jumbled Crafts today and I am sure you are waiting to see what
 Try it on Tuesday has as the theme to challenge you this time. Wonderful ideas for the Summer Colours Challenge from everyone who joined in It will be difficult to choose just 5 for sure.

Hope you will go and see what all the DT have made for our 'Things with Wings' challenge then join in with your own take.

I made a picture which I have hung in the hallway but the sun was too bright there to take a photograph so I took it into the garden and now it has shadows. :(
The wooden frame and wooden coasters were painted with a pale blue emulsion paint then sanded back to show some of the wood. I sprayed a bit of glimmer mist onto them for a bit of extra effect. Wouldn't be me if there wasn't Glimmer Mist somewhere.
The gold blobs were made with some embossing flakes-sorry I can't find them to say what make they were. I only just bought them and now they are hidden-I guess I am not the first person that has happened to.
The butterflies are from a packet I bought at our local craft shop-the name on the pack in Mic Craftpack and there were four in a pack for 50p.
Little flowers made from a Marianne Die and leaves stamped and coloured on canvas paper. The background  is made up of various bits of paper from my scrap box.

Can't wait to see what you make

I would also like to enter this at Tando Creative Challenge where they have the theme Come Fly with Me

Love Chrissie xx
