Man o man....





hello there
I have been busy busy with end of the school year activities.  We have finally had a bit of sunshine and I have  been outside....sooo wonderful and warm...I dearly need it.  I do have a little something to share.  I have been working on Helmar projects and been playing around with their Crackle finish .  I tried it here on this plaque in a small area on the metal frame and they keyhole.....I LOVE the outcome.  This is some awesome stuff! I will have more to share with it very soon.  I can't stop crackling things.  I found that vintage rhinestone brooch piece and the vintage cabochen rose out in my travels this week and love them.  Love to use old pieces like this as the center of flowers and such.  They tell a history you  just can't find with something new and shiny.  Just like the buttons above with their crackle imperfect state....that I find delectible.  Well hope you enjoy....I think things will slow down a bit for awhile before we start planning our trips etc.  Can't wait to share something I am making for Helmar.    Come back and visit!  cherry

Breathtaking...as usual. I'll have to check out those beautiful layered birds and butterflies at Joanne's.
I linked to you on my latest Post, as I used a cake stand you made a few years ago as my inspiration. You're so talented, Cherry! Happy creating all Summer long. : )
