Well I said I'd been...

...busy. Here is the proof.

A wonderful 3D LO inspired by Carole Janson (see link to the right - under blogs).

This was what I did today at the monthly Artbase Sunday crop.

Margaret came up with this fabulous idea after seeing some of the lovely 3D work that Carole does and shows on her blog.

One of the things behind todays project was to use lots of punches (you know, the ones you just had to have but have never seen the light of day since you got them home LOL) and some die cutting.

There were little circles, BIG circles, tiny & large flowers, hearts, squares, leaves and grass.

Most of the elements are attached to the LO on acetate hinges.

A bit of inking, some blinging-up with Stickles and some pretty little flowers cut from Core-dinations card and then sanded.

I've taken loads of pics of sections of the LO so you can see some of the detail.

Making up the various elements of this LO was what took the time but once they were done it was quick and easy to put everything together. Although you might not realise it, this LO will lay flat and slip into an album but for the moment I am enjoying having it sat on the mantlepiece.

Kristy came along to this and this was her first 'All-day' crop. She was very pleased with herself as she managed to get everything completed before the end of the crop - and a fab job she did too......................
