My First Creative Plaque

Hi Bloggers!

Well, today I wanted to share something a bit different with you all. Hope you like it :)

For a swap on an online stamping group I belong to, we had to decorate a plaque for a swap. I chose the theme  'Sewing Room'. It involved stamping of tissue paper and using Modge Podge! I loved it - was real messy. 

Please see the YouTube link that shows you the technique.

The stamping group can be found at :

Then, using inks and other types of glues and embellishments I started to put it all together. The colour theme was black and white with a hint of red. I wanted a verse in the centre, so selected one and stamped that onto card and used red ink around the edge to make it stand out. I love the baby cotton reels as well. I used cotton ribbon printed up as a tape measure to hang it up by :)

Here is the photo of the completed project. Hope you like it. I don't think it is bad for a first attempt and I hope that Pauline, my partner in the swap likes it.

So what crafting are you all up to? Please leave me a comment and let me know.

Catch you all soon :)
