Moving Along with the Times (MAWTT) - Anything but a Card

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends

How is your week going. I hope keeping on top of all that you need to do. There always seems so much at this time of year. Tomorrow we are off to Brighton to see the Bootleg Beatles in their Christmas concert. This will be the third year we have done this it is such good fun.

The new challenge starts on the Moving Along with the Times (MAWTT) challenge blog and both teams have joined together for this one. It runs until Wednesday 3rd January 2018 at 6 pm.  This challenge is a bit different  we would like to see  Anything BUT a Card so let your  imagination run away with you.
A Box, Bag, Frame, Knitting, Crochet, Book etc. etc. etc.
 There are some wonderful prizes on offer  for  randomly chosen entrants providing they fit the theme.
You will have one week to email me once the winners have been announced.

You know when you go to a store and you see something and you know you can make it. Well this is how this frame started I was in a shop with our daughter, it was actually the day of her husband's stag do, she spotted a frame like this and I uttered the immortal phrase. So then I had to follow through. 

I bought the frame first it came from the Range and was the colour our daughter wanted for the house. I made the background with Pixie Powders and Brushos. I used masks to create the clouds I cut them with some dies I have. I didn't want hard edges on the clouds so I removed the masks and spritzed again with water. 

I cut a sheep's body and covered it with Pom Poms. I used gel glue and I laid a book on them to hold them in place. The legs were cut with palm tree die from the Crafter's Companion Nativity die set. That is where the grass came from too. 

I have a few Alphabet die sets this one is by Tonic it seemed to be about the right size for the project.

Our daughter and her husband liked the frame which is good it doesn't look much like the original. 

This will be my last post before Christmas. I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Thank you for supporting my blog. 

Happy Crafting
