I've been framed!

Hi all

Try it on Tuesday have another new challenge this week, although you should have had advanced warning of this one as it is our alter it week.

We were asked a few weeks ago to join in the alter it theme by altering a frame so that's just what we did. Janet and I spent an afternoon sorting this frame out for our Stamping Club at The Stamp Man and delivered it as a workshop a couple of weeks ago

It's a poundland frame gesso'd, painted and stamped on with the Elusive Images flowers made into roses. I've used some of the new prima papers in the frame ready for an inspirational saying to be mounted on it but not had time for that because of the Lovin' Ink retreat we ran at the weekend.

More of that later, in the meantime why not pop over to Try it on Tuesday and have a look at the amazing samples from the DT.  There's a little surprise in the DT with two amazing artists joining us to become members of our talented group.  This week is sponsored by the fabulous folk over at 
 so there's an amazing £15 to be won by some lucky crafter.Hope it's you!

Back with more about the Retreat later

Have fun
x Michelle

Beautiful frame Michelle. I love the soft colours and those EI flowers make gorgeous roses. The doily in the background makes them extra special.
