Archi-scraps June - Framed Glass Terrariums

Hi Ladies!

Here is my entry for Archi-scraps challenge this month :)

 This time we are going out to the garden with this picture

The extra criteria is FRAMES

Framed Glass Terrariums

Since we were heading into the garden I added a garden glove and a little sign as my title.

The red gumboots and yellow watering can were cut from thick cardboard, painted and then crystal effects was added. The mushroom was hand cut and decorated with mushroom spots!

The terrarium pics each have a frame around them, I cut one frame down to fit!

Here is a close up......

Here is a link to 'Country Living' with a step by step tuturial on how to build your own greenhouse or terrarium by recycling old wooden picture FRAMES

Something I would love to make one day :)

Thanks for the challenge

SCRAP our STASH - Everything Happens For A Reason

Hi Ladies!

Here is my first ever entry for 'Scrap our Stash'

Create a MONOCHROMATIC layout and include the following:
1. Your layout should be different shades of 1 color. 
2. You can add black, white or Kraft --- but 75% must be shades of 1 color. 
3. STASH ITEMS: You must also add 5 (or more) DIFFERENT premade/prepackaged embellishments of your choice on your layout. You can use as many of the items you want BUT you will need to list 5 different items. (example - 2 paperclips, 4 buttons, 1 washi tape, 1 twine, and bling)
4. Please not what items you used in your write up. Thanks!
I do so love Monochromatic layouts, they are my absolute favourites!!

Wood veneer
Chrochet flower
Chipboard button
