Well we had a super Bank Holiday weekend with daughter and son-in-law doing things we wouldn't have dreamed of doing on our own. Frantic and fun best describes the times when we meet-up together but also did some crafting as well and she has gone home with a big box full of handmade items for the Cat Protection Sale.
Sorry that some of you couldn't get mousetraps for last week's challenge as it was a fun challenge for sure. Loved the ones that were entered and the novel ideas.
This week's Challenge at Out of a Hat is to use your favourite technique or product to make anything you like. I found it a bit difficult as I like so many things and ways of using them but what I thought about was what I do if I am just making something for no particular reason. Well I just love messing about with metal papers or tape and trying to make it look old.
Most of these are silver paper from packaging or alumium tape from a roll that I bought to play around with. Some is passed through the Cuttlebug in a folder, others I scrunch up or stick shapes to card then cover with silver paper or the tape. I use black ink on some and brown show polish on some and alcohol ink as well. Whatever is around I try just to see what effects I can get.
This is a tag made from some of the samples above.
Hope you will join us in this week's challenge and have fun. Do pop to Janet, Sandra and Florence's blogs to see what they have made for this challenge.
