JUNE BLOG HOP WITH THE SMEARED AND SMUDGED FORUM

Welcome to the June Smeared and Smudged members blog hop.
Our theme/challenge this month was to use something from outside/in our garden..... and of cause a stamp somewhere.
I had a play and made this shadow box..... and either made or altered all the contents..... apart from my garden salvage.... which is in the compartment with the Cheshire cat.

Theres so much stuff here.... Graphic 45 papers, paint, glimmer mists, metallic rub on paste, beads, Mad Hatter chess piece... tea pot off a caddy spoon.... cork letters.... clock charm....broken egg shells made into a mosaic (behind the sheep) chest off drawers made from a match box cut in half.... an altered cup and saucer ( was part of a set the girls had in the garden!).... then theres the salvage from the garden.... a clump of 'mind your own business'... its all over Nans garden...grows like a weed.... a twig/branch from the lilac tree.... and some of my 'pinks' that have dried out a bit..... and stamped images using SMEARED INKS 'BO PEEP' set..... i used the SKULLY FLOWERS, the FENCE and the 2x SHEEP.... i love those sheep!
The top picture shows the shadow box with everything in situ.... the photo below show the things that can be removed... REMOVED!



Heres the full list of blogs.... visit in any order you like.
