I thought I would create something colourful and interesting to look at. I started with the butterfly cross-stitch I completed the other day. I added a border of running stitch and a lovely shell button.
I collect together a variety of pretty craft papers...
And a postcard and other bits and pieces of embellishments.
I had an old photo frame - cheap and not very exciting, definitely in need of some recycling.
So I painted it a lovely light green colour and gave it a light sanding down to give it a distressed look.

Put it all together with the help of some bright washi tape, and there you have it.
|The postcard is from the V&A and reads|
"Time and tide wait for no man"
A lovely display to brighten up the room.
