As Jen mentioned yesterday we went on a Dabble Day organised by a local craft shop. We had a great day doing 3 projects, all fabulous and extremely enjoyable. We were as giddy as school girls waiting to go [hence the Gilbert & Sullivan title] and the day didn't disappoint.
Over the next few days we will share our take home pieces and probably some of the new stash we needed to buy while we were out ;0 Well it would be rude not to buy some of the goodies we used and our parents would be very disappointed if we were rude to anyone :)
The ribbon was coloured with the same ds then scrunched, dried and tied in a messy bow.
The word was distressed with more aged mahogany and the frame was painted, gilded, then painted again to make it look tarnished.
The pictures do not do this justice so I tried brightening one to give you a better idea of the shine from the gilding cream. It is lush!
