Altered a pine frame surrounding a mirror by using alcohol inks on the wood. Cut out the hearts with white cs on Cricut and distressed with various distress inks to get depth and shading. Printed out some text on puter and cut out a scalloped heart shape with it on Cuttlebug embossed and distressed the edges. Cut out the words 'Totally You' on white cs back on the Cricut and again shaded with distress inks and glittered. Added some flowers.
Made use of a peel off negative (bits left behind from a peel off that has been used) by adhering magic paper over the negative and rubbing fairly hard so it transferred to the magic paper. Then adhered the magic paper complete with negative to rainbow cs. Layered onto gold and then black cs. Used a white card base and covered with 2 pieces of SU paper. Made a gold band to go across one corner. Adhered the negative to the card base but also added a couple of peel offs over the front to cover a mistake where I hadnt completely got the negative !!!!! argggghhhh ...... Added a flower put a gem in the middle and decided enough was enough ......... yeah :)

In the new year when ordering a chinese take away the shop owners gave me a new year calendar as a freebie for ordering but it was covered in advertisements. I sponged the bottom half of the calendar with all sorts of inks trying to make a landscape of water and earth. I stamped the mermaids with a Clarity Stamp and coloured them with Sakura Gel Pens and then covered their scales with glaze so in real life they shine very nicely. The sky was made with acrylic inks, blue and white mixed till it was pale enough and then I added water to make it a thin wash. The fairies I cut out on Cricut with SCAL2. The butterflies are a cuttlebug die cut two layers of black and white. Looks much nicer in RL !!

I bought the frames off a car boot for 30p each in fact I bought 6 but have only worked on one up to now. I used alcohol inks on the front of the wood and edges. I added gold peel offs. I cut all my embellishments with the Cricut using SCAL2. I distressed the hinges and flower and heat embossed with embossing powders. I added a gem in the middle of the flower and put glitter on the fairy.
