A Fantastic Idea...

Hello friends
Today I'm featuring a project created by the super talented Sherry Cheever
Sherry is on the Spellbinders Blog Team. 

Sherry has kindly given me permission to share with you her altered frame
created with....3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L -
yes 3D Foam Squares!
Sherry began with a bargain store frame and added Regular 3D Foam Squares around
the outer edge.   Small 3D Foam Squares were used around the inner frame opening.
A layer of Gesso was then added.  Once dry, the entire frame was painted with
grey acrylic paint.  For the antique finish, white acrylic paint mixed with a
staining medium.  A piece of watercolour paper painted the same grey added to the
aperture, a stamped sentiment onto Classic Ovals SM and  the flower is
Further details can be found on Quietfire Creations blog.
I've calculated that Sherry has used 64 Regular and 32 Small 3D Foam Squares
I cannot wait to try this out - such a fantastic idea, thank you Sherry!
Please visit Sherry's blog for more brilliant projects and inspiration.

I have some update news regarding the Tool n'One...
I spoke with the States yesterday and it looks like they will start shipping 
from there next Wednesday.  As soon as they arrive at my door I promise to turn them
around instantly - I've got packaging and labels at the ready!
Let's hope they are on a nice fast aeroplane - if I could I would ask them
to take Concorde out of retirement!

Today Elliott and I are back at The Royal Marsden..
oh yes it could be McDonalds again!
Take care friends and stop by tomorrow for Friday Die Day!

OOOH, nice altered art plaque - they looked like mosaic squares to me.

Really excited about the Spellies tool, as I have it on order - I wish Concorde was still with us too.

Best of luck at the Royal Marsden.
