An Inchies Frame

I had a little pile of Inchies from a recent swap I was in over on UKscrappers & decided that it was time to do something with some of them ... I have these cheap frames from Ikea (something like 99p for 3) & would you believe it, their frames are 1" wide ! perfect ..so I used distress inks (in china blue & tea dye) to cover the 'pineness' of the frame & then adhered the inchies to the frame using some paper effects clear. (very sim' to glossy accents)
& here it is ... (still need to find a picture to put in it yet though :) )


I'll have to think of what to do with all my twinchies when that swap is complete .. thinking caps on !

An Altered Canvas

Sorry I've not been around for the last few days, I've been ill in bed since wednesday, But am now feeling much better & so I have spent the morning playing with this canvas that I have altered ...


not sure why it's tipped this photo on it's end, i've tried putting it on twice ..but it seems to prefer it this way lol :D
I'm afraid the photo's don't give the best of this But something I reason is better than nothing :D
Just finishing the final details of the workshops through to the end of the year & they will be posted shortly on www.artisttradingpost.com
Where I hold the Workshops at Dove Studio, is actually on a farm & they also have holiday accomodation so if ever you & a group of friends wanted a retreat tailor made to your requirements just email me for more info. info@anneliesebates.co.uk Anything is possible !
