Art Creations Friday supplied this gorgeous textured background for todays challenge.


I added some lace and ribbon and a lace flower secured with a pale pink pearl brad.


I wanted to keep the overall 'textured' look of the background and after experimenting in edging a small section with embossing powder (unsuccessful!!) I reverted back to the 'torn tissue paper covered with acrylic paint then blasted with a heat gun' technique!


This is my first challenge for a while - and at least I feel I spent the little spare time I had doing something!

It's been very difficult to find any inspiration - it's not that I don't want to craft because I do, it's just that my mind is full of other things and I cannot push all the other things that are going on to one side in my head and let any creativity see the light of day - there are too many teams to pick, games to play and lots of County Administration. In a way I want September to come then I can get back to just being messy on the desk instead of having to be organised!
