Craft packages ordered =0, craft packages received =0

So today is the start of our holiday and my posts for the forthcoming week have all been scheduled. Today we only go as far as Gatwick, where will stay overnight before catching a flight to Valencia on Sunday morning. I am not someone who packs light, I am more of a kitchen sink type of girl. You can be sure there will have been some sort of packing trauma before we headed south and, if past experience is anything to go by, an airport parking trauma on arrival! I’m not even going to think about the M25 scenario.

Today I have a little altered beer mat to show you:


I’ve covered the beer mat with some of the Speak Easy paper from the Gecko Galz Gatsby paper pack.






The words are digital stamps from the In Other Words set. I brushed on a smidge of gesso over the top, using a dry brush, and then added a little Vintage Photo distress ink.


I painted a wooden heart with bright red acrylic paint, added a coat of varnish and then wrapped some silver jewellery wire around it together with a couple of beads.


Hope you have a weekend that is full of love, laughter and life!
