New Lavinia Challenge

Hi Everyone

You know when you look at something in the house and think - that's ugly but I need it so it'll have to stay - well I did that with my scrubbing brush :) lovely Eileen thought it might be fun to make a series of them for the challenge - so I did!  I bought them from Tesco and covered them in a chalk based paint, stamped away and glittered and glazed them - great fun. They are all covered in outdoor Modgepodge and so are fully useable, as I have proved with another I made using one of the Lavinia designed stencils from Sweet Poppy designs.

The Lavinia stamps are so versatile you can use them for anything! see what you can do at http://laviniastamps.com/blog/  The theme is "Any colours you like" so a nice and easy one!



Happy Crafting
