The Craft Barn have been a bit sneaky with their letter "M" consigning us to "Ma" to "Me" only! So for my Special Days theme, Mothering Sunday was out of the window - shame. I had to put on my thinking cap and came up with May Day although was tempted my a friend's suggestion of Mardi Gras!
As seems to be the case more and more these days, I had no idea what I was going to do and just got stuck in. I found the word "May" in my dictionary and sure enough Mayday was there too, but its meaning was somewhat different to what I was about! LOL (I added the definition all the same).
So what DID I do in the end? Well I Dylusioned the backing paper with green and lime. I got out my Tattered Florals die yet again (certainly having a Tattered Florals phase, I blame Timmy myself - LOL). I cut the flowers in 2 types of fabric. The dark blue came from the packaging to one of my wedding presents 15yrs ago. I cut more of the tiny flower using up the left over dictionary page picking out more "M" words, such a Maze, and Mediaeval, Melancholy, Meadowsweet, Menopause (I wish!) and Mayonaise - yummy. Doodled with white pen and added some liquid pearls. Yep Done!
- Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm a lapsed crafter of late but still managing my diary Scrapbooking, plus cards as required. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, not really got back to the latter since the pandemic. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I am a Christian.
