For the love of glossy accents

Hi everyone. Can I just say, once again, thank you for your support of late. Some of you will know I lost my Mum and life has been a little difficult. I am also playing catch up with lots of things and haven't been able to visit your wonderful blogs recently. I really hope I will get a bit more time soon; in the meantime I am very grateful that you still pop to see me here.

Today I am sharing this project over on the Country View Crafts project blog, so do pop over for the 'what I did' bit! I also created a version 2:
The main difference here is before adding the glossy accents I added Deco Art crackle glaze - the poor butterfly was a little overloaded with this and it started to fall off so the layer of glossy accents held it all in place.



  1. Nikki so sorry to hear about your mum, the biggest hugs to you. Love your butterflies!
