Black & Silver Paper Weight or Door Stop

Black & Silver Paper Weight


I covered my rock using foil tape, then smeared it with liquid lead & left it to dry. Once it was dry I gave it a coat of varnish & whilst waiting for the varnish to dry I made my flowers & punched out some foil butterflies.  Once the varnish was dry I used Bostik to glue down the flower & butterflies.


I'm really chuffed with my paper weight!!


 


Thanks for looking :)

Grd. R Graduation


This is the second layout I finished on Thursday. I have tons of patterned papers that I just don't like & I don't think I will ever use them. So I used 6  x 6 papers to cover this ugly paper for my background. I just love how this layout turned out!!
