I am so pleased to have been asked by Mi Ran to Guest DT for this times challenge...the theme is anything goes and you can check out the full design teams makes on the Art by MiRan Challenge Blog
As this was a special one for me (I adore Mi Ran's images), I decided to make the project special too.
My make is for my big Sister, I know I shared a chalk board I made for her recently too but this one is for her Birthday. Some of you know that she's not had the best of times recently and I do love her so much that I decided to make her a frame for her Birthday (it was the 2nd but we have delayed it as she was poorly in hospital). If you're reading this Brenda, then know that I love you more than you know and I am always, always here for you xxx
So here is my GDT project:
Here's what I used and how:
Image: Punkie Pattie by Art by MiRan; I chose her because my big Sis is a bit of a rebel, a bit of a rocker and loves to shock, this is so her (except perhaps the innocent look on her face lol)
Coloured: I used my Copic's and the purple combo is V04, V06, V09 and E49. Purple because it's my Sister's fav colour and I am totally sure she would have her hair this colour if she could!
I have coloured onto super smooth card from That Craft Place
Embellies: Honestly...the black ribbon roses are from an old dress of my daughters! See, my ongoing Top Tip, never throw something away on day one...leave it for a day to see if you can think of a way to use it in your crafting! lol.
I love, as regulars to my blog will know, to build what I call 'junk piles' with my embellies. They are like little 'junk drifts' on my makes! So I adhered the ribbon down first with hot glue then grabbed all sorts of embellies, bits of an old necklace and an MDF birdcage (that I covered in gold Pinflair Buff It first) and glued then all in place.
The frame is an 8x8 inch shadow box frame from Wilkinson's (a UK store for home stuff and all sorts of stuff relatively cheap), it was already painted white so I left it that way; I really wanted the image to stand out on this one.
Sentiment: I chose this one for my Sister and its from Create with TLC. If you haven't checked out her blog yet go have a look...she offers free sentiments and seriously they are just so beautiful xxx
So that's it, my GDT make for the Art by MiRan Challenge Blog...
