Calico Craft Parts! YAY!

For those who didnt know, Calico Crafts sadly had a fire last year and lost everything!
they have returned now with a new twist. they are concentrating their business completely on the "Calico Craft Parts". I have to say I was very enamoured with the selection of lovely things. I made an order instantly. (I was their very first official paying customer lol). I found it hard not to over fill the virtual shopping cart.
This plaque thing is completely made from Calico Craft parts. the only other thing i used was paints/mediums/glue. the image is a Calico Craft Parts ATC wood blank. I have attached it to the rest of the plaque with Velcro so I can change the image any time I want. I was going to put an ATC in it but I love the "Land of Nod Studio" images so much I went with that.
I never know what sort of background will look best for taking a photo of an item so i tend to try it on a few. and when I moved this plague off of the white paper background and on to my wooden trunk, I realised the plaque might actually look nice framed.

the frame I used was a really ugly, scruffy one I got in a charity shop. it was trying to pretend it was one of those lovely plaster and gold gilt ones. and the picture it had inside was some scary "foil image". so I gave it a makeover and then stuck my plaque on to it. I am very pleased with it.

You can find the plaques, ATC blanks, flourishes, butterflies all at Calico Craft Parts by clicking HERE.

thanks for visiting my blog.

Spring project for Calico Crafts

A friend of mine was having a clear out and she gave me a box of treasure to use in my crafting. In the box was a little alarm clock case ...
