OSAAT-Fabric, Ribbon or Lace

Good morning everyone, hope you are well! Here I am with my DT project for our 'Fabric, Ribbon or Lace' challenge at One Stitch at a Time this week. Ive started making my Christmas gifts in the hope I can get them all made in time! I chose to make a frame for a photo I took which I love of a wintery sunny day by the sea. I had printed this on Canvas so wanted to make a frame without glass so I didnt ruin the canvas look. I found frames in poundland and decided to use those. I covered the frame and inside of the frame with the gorgeous papers by Oase and embellished the swirls with pearls and added butterflies too.I added ribbon to the bottom of the canvas to lift the photo as the shingle on the beach was slightly dark without it.

Home Decor Project-Beaded Curtain Tie Backs

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my favourite home decor make in a while. My father made me a four poster bed as he had some spare wood and I have always wanted one! So my job was to sort out the curtains and the decor to go with it. The bed was painted white and I chose Turquoise organza for my curtains. I thought for a while what sort of look I wanted and had the idea to make beaded tie backs, I wanted an opulent look so I looked for a good mix of Turquoise and other assorted vintage metallic beads, gem beads and pearls which matched well.  I found a fabulous mix of odd beads on ebay, then bought some plastic rings for my hooks, and the rest I had in my stash.  I also used Tiger tail, crimp beads, crimp covers and my jewellery tools.  I wanted to keep them as random mixes so I made each differently. I started by doubling my tiger tail, and folding this over, then fixing the first ring with a crimp and covered this with the crimp cover. I then threaded m…
