It's beautiful home decor from Jennie...

Hi there folks!

We're 3/4 of the way through the month and have just a week to go before this challenge ends.  What better to motivate and inspire you than a gorgeous shabby chic project from our talented Jennie.....

I am so loving the Layered Butterfly Die and decided I wanted to make a vintage frame to showcase it. I used Paper Artsy Fresco Finish Paints and supplies left over from my Finnabair workshop in May to alter a cheap plywood frame. My butterfly is cut and embossed in metal and then painted to match the frame.  
There are some step by step photos and more details on my blog.

This is beautiful Jennie, who would have known it was just a plywood frame underneath - brilliant, thank you!

Whatever your crafty preferences, we'd love to see what you're making. Remember, it doesn't have to include all three items just a minimum of one.  Everyone has a butterfly, don't they?  The lucky winner (chosen at random) will be the recipient of a £20 shop voucher from our generous sponsor, Country View Crafts, to spend in time for Christmas.  Hoorah!  >:o)

We'll be back on Tuesday with another DT project, see you then!

Have a great day!
