Guest Designer

Today I'm a Guest Designer for 613 Avenue Create using a Fitztown image of Floral 3 available here.

It's also a RAK day on 17 February so I've made this door hanger for a friend to hang on her craft room door. We all need a quiet time and what better than to have it in your craft room?

I coloured the image with my Promarkers and tore it out before using Distress Ink on the torn edges. The MDF plaque, which I bought from Joanna Sheen a few years ago, had already been painted with yellow emulsion paint before I added purple Cosmic Mist on top of it. The shimmer didn't show up very well but the colour works. The lilac lace with ribbon was from the local market and I lay that close to the bottom edge. I used a Spellbinders oval nestie and laid that at an angle to the left with a torn scrap of 'musical' paper, again edged with the Distress Ink. alongside it. I arranged the Floral image over the two. The sentiment is from Joanna Sheen. I was in a tearing frame of mind (lol) so I tore this out too and edged it with the Shaded Lilac Distress Ink, as before. I set this to the right and added three Mei Flower lilac pearls under the sentiment. I also added some of these to the oval nestie for added bling! To finish it off I added three Wild Orchid Craft flowers with some die cut swirls that a friend sent me, thanks Nataliya. Of course, it still needed a hanger so I used some of my new purple ribbon that I bought at Jo-Ann's when we were in Florida at Christmas. I fastened the ribbon on each side with a Dovecraft jewel brad.

I didn't expect to get this finished as my eyes have been really bad over the past few weeks. Roll on 18 March when I hope that an injection will sort them out for the next three or four months.

I'm entering this plaque into the following challenges:
City Crafter Challenge - You Matter
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
Crafting from the Heart - Anything Goes
Through the Purple Haze - Use some Flowers
Anything but a Card Challenge - Friendship
Catch the Bug Challenge - Anything Goes

Thank you all, once again, for visiting. I'm hoping that I can return the favour just as soon as my eye situation is resolved.
