New Challenge over at The Mirror Crack'd *

Crikey it is May already - where on earth has the time gone!

This month over at The Mirror Crack'd the theme is Tryptich.  I don't mind telling you I struggled with this one lol.  I had the background prepared for ages and kept changing my mind on what to do.  Initially I was making a shabby chic piece and covered both sides with butterfly napkins, crackled and antiqued.  I just did not know from then on lol.  

Last night I decided to stencil with modelling paste and crackle paste.  Loads of sprays and inka gold appeared and performed their magic.  I left the back with the butterfly napkins.  

I used a couple of wooden frames and grunged them up with modelling paste, paint and yet more inka gold (I love that stuff as you have probably guessed lol).  I printed pictures of my twin grandchildren, Lili-Mae and Harvey and got them safely in the frames without any mishaps from within my dirty workspace.  I colored up 'play time' letters using (yes you guessed) inka gold!

Voila all complete.  Now for he pictures of back and front of my Tryptich.

That is it for today.  I do hope you have enjoyed your visit and you feel like dropping by again real soon.. Why not head on over and join in with this month's challenge over at The Mirror Crack'd.  We would love to see you there.

Hugz and love always
