Handmade Monday #17

Good Afternoon everyone, I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. I thought I would make an early start on Handmade Monday. If your not sure what that means, let me explain.
 You write a post telling and showing photos of what you've been making, or what you've been doing over the past week. Then you leave a link to your post over on Wendy's blog - 1st Unique Gifts. From there you can catch up with what everyone else has been up to.

The first thing I'd like to share with you is this poppy and daisy painting I made with my craft fair business name on. I thought it would make a nice centre piece to my table, and I've put it as my crafting facebook page photo.
Its actually painted on a large box canvas, that I got from Wilkinsons. It started life as a childrens art canvas with a thick black line drawing of a farm yard scene. I painted over with a dark blue colour so that the image wouldnt show up, then did the crackle background over that.

This is a hexagonal box that I painted with a crackle background and then a sunflower design, then edged the lid with brass sparkle embossing powder. I painted a similar design on a round box and it sold straight away, so fingers crossed for this one next week.

A large candle with the sunflower design.

This is a house number plaque, just awaiting numbers.

I've placed some unpainted numbers on just to give an idea what it will look like, obviously the numbers will be painted and finished to co ordinate.

I would like to enter these into the Dutch Dare challenge - Altered Projects
Digi design house - Anything but a card
Polka Doodles - Anything but a card

Well thats all from me for now, I'll catch up with everyone later.
