Hi Everyone, I'm trying to get back into crafting..........

Hi Everyone,
Sorry I've been missing for so long,
Most of you may know, Reg has been really poorly,
I'm happy to say, He's on the mend.
He has to got to hospital tomorrow,
For a colonoscopy.
Thank you for all the well wishes.
I had a bad accident, injuring my head,
This really dented my confidence....
I have had no desire to do crafting of any description....
I really hope my mojo will return soon....
Thank you all for the lovely messages & Well wishes.

Last week I bought a letter rack from B & M
It was £3-99.

I gave it a coat of Gesso.

Then i painted it will acrylic paint.

The next step was to add some embellishments & braiding.

I then gave it a final coat of paint.
When this had dried I coated it with Mod Podge.
I gave the front a textured look.

Finally I gave it a gilded look with
LuminArte  (Bronze Medallion.

I hope you like the finished result.

Items used.
Letter rack (B&M)
Acrylic paint (Java bean)
Embellishments (From my stash)
Braiding (Local Linen Shop)
LuminArte (That Craft Place)

Thank you so much for looking at my blog,
I will repay every visit.

Lots of love,
