Made with love ...

...and lots of tears.

I made this canvas with a favourite photograph of Dad, as a gift for my brother

Never a truer word spoken ....

Suede flowers, chipboard scrolls, wooden leaves distressed with Distress Inks and a little
birdhouse button I've had for years.

Gardener's twine, coated with pva glue and fashioned into a heart,
a little wooden tag with a vellum sentiment

Buttons, Buttons, Buttons....... and more twine ...

Another chipboard scroll, these were painted with acrylics and more ink.  The dragonfly
was a die cut - goodness knows where that came from - inked up again. 

Build a little birdhouse in your soul.   This button was very plasticky looking until I  attacked it
with a promarker!  

The finished article.

Hope the universe is treating you kindly this weekend.

Love and crafty blessings.  xx
