Vintage bake off......D

Happy Saturday night to you all

I have not been near my craft room all week.  I have not had any enthusiasm to make anything.  No mojo and had to make something for my colleague and friend at work due to her leaving the dept on Wednesday.  I don't know why I always leave important things to the last minute lol.

My friend likes to bake and she has just bought a range cooker.  I went trawling the net for images of a range and came up with the background for this collage.  She makes some amazing cakes, lemon drizzle, Bruce Bogtrotter's chocolate cake and hot cross buns so I found pics of those and stuck them on the left of the canvas.  To the right I found pics of flour, castor sugar eggs and butter.  Not all that visible on here the camera just would not play nicely.  I distressed over the top and edges using TH brushed corduroy.

For the back I found a poem Recipe for friends. I rooted through my kitchen and found a shortish wooden spoon, painted it the same as the back and sides of the canvas and stuck it on top.  The canvas can now be hung using the spoon.

Quite a quick project and reasonably pleased with it.

Hope you are all enjoying the weekend.
