C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 15 - something other than a card......

This week our sponsor is Donnas Den and its a great prize ....come join us!

My good intentions of making a mirror for my C.R.A.F.T DT contribution this challenge fell by the wayside. So instead I did a little tissuetex - this is something I often do for fundraisers at nursery/school and normally goes down well. Great for decorating floating candle bowls.
Blank bottles from IKEA - water down some P.V.A. and tear up your tissue( brain is not working this morning - but it's the type with fibres through) . Apply pva to bottle, stick on tissue and apply more pva on top of tissue to smooth out. Leave overnight to dry and then I like to add stickles or details with glass outliner.

These are the fab prizes supplied by our sponsor Donnas Den this week....
