My Minds Eye 'Sweetheart' Butterfly Canvas

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my entry to the My Minds Eye/Gossamer Blue Guest design call details here. I used some of my favourite My Minds Eye 'Lost and Found' papers and cut them into little Butterflies with Sarah Hurley's Butterfly svg file :-) I used a Canvas painted with white paint as my base. I then used the 'Sweet' sentiment from the same range as my centre and made a heart of Butterflies all around it, with butterflies flying inside the heart too.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Alphabet Challenge: A is for Anything with Wings
Bloggers Challenge: Cut it Out
Hotshot Crafts: Anything But a Card
Inspire Me Fridays: Anything Goes
Moving Along with the Times: Love is in the Air
Forever Friends: Animals/ Butterflies/ Birds
Flutter By Wednesdays: Hearts

Thank you for looking and for all your lovely comments :-)

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.
