A little bit of "me" time

I think I suffered a relapse yesterday, and finally felt tired after the weekend. I am having strange dreams, and for the first time in ages am sleeping in! Almost unheard of!! This morning it is grey and foggy.. a perfect day for staying in and creating! Not sure if I will have time for that, but here are a  couple more of the pieces we created at ArtsyCrafts at the weekend.
This was my favourite piece,called Timer Flies which is a uteed piece of metal, attached to grungepaper wings. The metal was puffed out by hand and painted and glimmer misted and then clear Utee was poured on top.




One of the other pieces was a little box called Me Time- a time capsule. This was great fun to make, and used Glimmer mists with a piantbrush. If you have any then spray them onto  a craft sheet and pick up the colours with a paintbrush. Sets a sparkle to your work! I don't actually own any Glimmer mists, so will try this with Perfect Pearls. There was lots of metal work in this piece and the front contained a watch Glimmer chip, paint with Glimmer Mists and highlighted with Viva Precious metal colour (love these!) The watch face was stamped in black and painted with Glimmers, and then Crackled Accented over the top. I might still work on this box as I still have the wings to attach. I made a right mess of mine, so have to re-do them!


Tomorrow I shall show you the final little arch book.
If you would like to see how they should have looked, pop over to Lin's blog! Her's are much better than mine.
Have a Happy Creative Day!
