Keeping the blues away!

Hello crafters! 

I think it’s been almost a year since I purchased the supplies for a wonderful crafting project designed by Jessie Hurley. She was in town for Scrapfest working with One Crazy Stamper; as was I! 

After spending much time watching the demonstrations I took the plunge! 

So, this is what I started with: 

Odds and ends. You can see my little box of wood pieces below. 

After adding some texture paste and postioning the left over box that stored those wood pieces ( I will be using them to hold pictures) I formed up the final pieces I was going to use. In my mind these were “4 seasons” - winter and spring; fall and summer. The obviousness of this will disappear in the final project. 

Above, winter and spring

Above, fall and summer. 

And now, ta-ta-ta-da! The final product:

I put metallic threads on the black boxes with clothes pins. These will secure my pictures and allow me to change them with my mood. The boxes are glued permanently to the base. 

Close ups! 

It was great to use my pastes and waxes. Choosing colors is always my challenge. I like to use many but limited myself to purples, blues, gold and silver. 

Thanks for stopping by! And get crafting!
