1st Anikraft Blog candy ..... and another vintage frame

So, as promised here is (finally) my first ever blog candy. I only discovered the world of blogs and its great challenges and candies a few months ago but I'm loving it. And so, I thought I should have a little candy myself. It's only small but worth the effort nevertheless.

So, let me tell you what you are getting.....

- a Muji Kraft notepad to alter
- a Moleskine Kraft notbook to alter
- a selection of Tim Holtz Fragments in a little bag
- 2 small corked glass vials (one filled with beads)
- glittery brads from Imaginisce
- feathers
- 2 sheets of cork paper
- a tube of glitter
- some heassian fabric (great for vintagy/grungy looks!!)
- a little container full of blue mixed sequins

Now if you are thinking 'What on earth could one make with that?!?!' then let me show you...

Here is a vintagy frame I made using the hessian, some Tim Holtz fragments and a little vial, also filled with beads. I added a load of other old stuff like an old key I found at home and some more of the old German money my dad gave me and some more idea-ology. And the lady in the centre, I cut her out of the new Lost and Found paper stack by Tim Holtz. (Love it!!!) I named her Mary and made up a whole story about who she is. And the frame is what Mary is about.

So, I hope you like what you see and that you'd like to get your hands on the candy, here is the rules:

1. Become a follower of my blog (you must have a blog yourself, I'd like to visit my followers blogs and see what they get up to)
2. Post about my blog/candy and link it to you sidebar

That's it for rules really. I will ship world wide. And the candy will get drawn when I reach 50 followers Now go and tell everyone about my candy and keep checking back for more crackle frames and idea-ology storage boxes I've been working on this week.
