Wasting half an hour...

I am bored today. I have a HUGE pile of ironing waiting to be done, and I feel like I should be doing more in the last few days of Izabelle's Easter hols, but with a head cold looming, and lots of grey clouds outside, I really am feeling sorry for myself, and lazy!

So when I ventured into the kitchen looking for a comfort snack, I spotted the biscuit barrel and choose to sit down at my craft desk and pretty it up a bit.

It only took me half an hour, but at least I feel like I have achieved something today now!


I used some Prima e-line flowers, and spritzed them with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, and whilst doing this, I also sprayed some on a scrap of green card. I then punched the leaves out of the green, and inked the edges to make them look a little more realistic. I tend to bend the leaf in half, so I can ink a line down the centre of the leaf, then bend it up the opposite way for dimension. (Maybe I should type up a post on doing this?!?)


This is what the biscuit jar looked like before...pretty boring, and even worse as it was empty!
