A Little Bit Crafty: Are we there yet?

Good morning everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my DT project for our 'Are we there yet?' challenge at A little bit Crafty this month. I used a stamp by Woodware which I stamped with Stazon onto watercolour paper. I then coloured with Aquamarkers. I chose Papermania All Aboard papers and used complimenting card to mat with. The 'Bon Voyage' sentiment I cut from one of the sheets of paper. I made the butterfly embellishments myself by cutting them out of canvas with the X-cut butterfly dies, then I coloured them with Mister Hueys spray inks, then lastly stamped the pattern on with Stazon. I really like the texture and vibrancy of the canvas and the inks.
We are sponsored this month by

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

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.
