Bits & Pieces

Now that the nights are getting darker, I like to spend the evenings sitting at my desk making a mess with paints and papers. And since I've finally got around to getting myself a proper desk light I can craft at night without having to squint and getting more mess on myself than on the page!

We've recently had a new baby niece born so I decided to make a keepsake box as a gift. I started with a plain box, painted on some wood grain texture and stencilled on a cherry blossom with modelling paste.

I used some pretty flowers, butterflies and chipboard in a nice peachy colour range and added some glitter for sparkle.
