The love for crafting is of all times. This picture of my MIL's sewing machine must be at least 40 years old, maybe even older. I made this LO for the september challenge of Let's get Shabby - white and/or cream with a touch of another color.
These are the steps:
1) Use a piece of white cardstock as a basis
2) Cut a piece of cream paper in three and tear the edges
3) Glue on cream paper on white cardstoch and stitch together with big cross stitches
4) For the layers I arranged a doily, a piece of newspaper. magic mesh and a crochet piece
5) Paint the clock and alpha's with Rock Candy Distress Paint and let dry
6) When dry, rub some Old Paper distress ink in the cracks
7) Embellish with flowers, ribons, and other yummy goodies
That's it!
Thanks for looking
