Crafts and Me - Anything goes - a little something for me.

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well. Work for me later and then a day off :D
We have a new challenge for you this morning at the CRAFTS AND ME CHALLENGE. This challenge will last for 4 weeks so plenty of time to get an entry in.
 
The fabulous sponsor is  Marianne Designs  with this gorgeous prize.
 
So here is my creation which I am entering into the following challenges:
1.Crafty Ribbons Challenge - Challenge 49 - Flowers Galore
2.The Hobbyhouse Challenge - Challenge 1 - Anything goes
4.Inky Chicks Challenge - Challenge 7 - Anything goes
5.Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge - Challenge 188 - Pick and mix (anything goes)
6.Creative Inspirations Challenge - Challenge 200 - Anything goes with the option of ribbon.
 
I brought this cheap white plastic frame and set to altering it for my bedroom.
I absolutely love reading so this image is just perfect ;D
 
The frame is really cracked but the pic has not picked it up.
Products used are:
Cheapy frame
First edition decoupage paper - blue damask for the frame and inside on the back
GCD ella blue papers
Matt decoupage glue
Antique crackle base coat
Antique crackle top coat
White acrylic paint
sandpaper
Cheery Lynn fanciful flourish
Pearls
Roses
Ribbon
Buttons
A close up of the beautiful image surrounded by yumminess.
I had so much fun making this and used my hairdryer on a cool setting to dry my layers quicker.
It has also got deeper cracks in it now than when I took the pics.

A close up of the image.

And a sideways view.
Really wish you could see this in real life.
Thanks so much for popping by,means a lot :D
Hugs Nic.xx
