We also filled our evelopes with assorted papers and cards from our own country
Jen included this lovely piece of flocked card from an Australian company called Kaiser, superb!

I painted it, and painted it and painted it again and then I painted it and oh, did I mention? I painted it and painted it again! honestly the wood was such poor quality that I may as well have been painting the bathroom sponge! just a tad absorbent, even after assorted painterly products! Now I know why the guy at the Bring and Hol was telling his friend NOT to take the box! and here was me thinking you just have to know what to do with these things, nothing that a bit of TLC won't fix...
I gave up trying to paint the back of it and settled for covering it with sheet music which took on a nice tint when the wood came in contact with the Gel Medium! saved myself the expense of walnut ink, ha! the paper also covered up the splinters!
Anyway, now it's up on the wall I'm delighted! I was going to scrap the individual squares but I've decided to leave them plain and let the ATC's and matchboxes do the talking, just the perfect place for my tiny treasures!

Dress Up September, Part 2!

Dress Up - September
I started by attaching a backing paper and added paint, netting and scraps. I couldn't resist a little beady eye for each fish!
I glued on a tree cut from a paper serviette then added some gathered ribbon flowers with a bead centre.
