Time passing...

Well school back today so should get back to blogging more regularly! I CANNOT BELIEVE how grown up my baby looks as she head of into primary 4! Where has the time gone? My baby just can't be so grown up! I'm a bit emotional!!!
She absolutely adores her new Gorjuss school bag and scuff free shoes...for now at least! Bet they're not like this at 3pm!
Back to crafting and with time passing so fast I decided to do some clock altering at last weeks class...Here we go, a plain wall clock from Poundstretchers...
And after! Hard to believe it's the same clock. I sanded down the plastic, coated with a berry coloured acrylic and then before the acrylic dried completely dabbed on a layer of bronze crackle paint so that it picked up some of the colour. Then once it had dried I used a gold ink pad and a black staz-on over the top. The papers for the face are Basic Gray...

And a quick couple of Craftrak swap cards...
This is a Penny Black stamp...

That's me for today...off to work on some wedding invitations now.
Have a fab day everyone
xx
