Just for Fun - Squares

With so much going on at the moment when I get a job wonder where I'll find the time to do it!

Here we are another Thursday and another Just for Fun Challenge.   As always we love seeing what people make for the challenge and of it! Stars seemed to stump a few of you wrong time of the year perhaps LOL.   Well today Von has made things a little easier for us all, the shape this week is Square.

I found this Habitat frame in a charity shop for 75p bargain alterable thought I grabbing it.   At home it joined all the other bargain alterables waiting for attention and there it was ready for Von's challenge.  As it was varnished gave the frame a good rub down before painting it with believe it or not brown acrylic paint.   Once that dried it was the pva glue and over the wet glue cream acrylic paint.    Set it all aside to throughly dry and crack before stamping and embossing the Penny Black flowers.   Finally rubbed DI round the edges.

Its Easter week-end and good weather is forecast have a wonderful time as you go out and about with family and friends.  If you do find yourself with some time on your hands and the urge to craft why not make something that includes a square or square feature and share it with us at Just for Fun.

    If it had looked like this before, it never would have ended up at the thrift store!

  6. You got a great cracked paint effect with this one Zoe. I love the technique, but find it can vary so much depending on mediunds, backgrounds and so on. At least each one if different.

    Hope you have a good Easter.
