No not your distress at increasing petrol/mortgage/food/electricity/general cost of life, but show distressing on your projects! Its what they want to see on Simon Says this week. Also there is a Home Decor Challenge in the Moxie Fab World that I am entering this into.
I have posted my project below in my Core’dinations post but am just splitting it out into here again so that the folk at Simon Says didn’t have to trawl through a huge big post!
This wall hanging started off as a plain wooden pot stand from Ikea believe it or not. I painted it a pale blue and started embellishing. I die cut the word Live from brown Core’dinations and embossed it with a damask embossing folder. I sanded the high point of it to show the lighter core. I also die cut a bookplate and flourish from the same paper. I also cut a heart frame. All these items were embossed and sanded and adhered to the frame. I then created two envelope style photo mats. These are held closed with a ribbon. When opened they pop open to show photos of your choice….
