Something Found

Over at JFF this is the last week of the recycle challenge and boy has it been a tuf month, but then it is called a challenge :-) Any way the Diamond has been decorating again and we have been clearing out stuff. I found some old wall paper (might not technically be an object but I did find it)I also found some old nail varnish. I have made some butterflies for a hanging frame I had. This idea is not mine but I learnt it from my sister in law (Brenda).
Punch out from the wallpaper (you do need to fussy punch) then punch out from plain copy paper, glue the two together, whilst still wet shape the wings when happy with the shape dab pva on the underside and leave to dry this will give it some body to keep the shape. Once completely dry cover with clear nailvarnish it will dry rock hard. Now how is that for a money saving tip and it really works.

Hope this is ok for this weeks theme. Enjoy the weekend. Hugs Sandra XX
