Sharing an Oldie this Friday!

Good afternoon friends, hope you're all well!
It's a beautiful day here on the Yorkshire Coast and there's washing on the's the simple things that make my happy lol.......and a line full of washing is one of them!
So being Friday you know what you have to do........share an oldie with Erika.....simply link up a past crafty make just for the fun of it.....but don't forget to let Erika know so she can visit you back!
I have a mixed media canvas to share today.......not too old, it's only from last year but I finally got a place to hang it in my newly decorated bedroom! I remember I got in a right old mess making it.....but it was great fun! Lots of scrunched up tissue for the background then I dabbed the different paints on with some scrunched up kitchen roll. The heart is simply strips of paper then I added the ric rac & flowers. To the centre of the flowers I added glaze & some tiny seed beads then lastly I finished with some Tim Holtz chit chat stickers.
That's it from me for today......thanks for calling.....see you soon!
