Easter basket

Hello and welcome to another post.  Thank you so much for all the comments left on yesterday's post xx

Today's creation:


I made this for my friends Jean and Alex, I haven't decided what to put in it yet!  I started off by putting the pieces of the MDF basket together.  I then used paper from Craftwork cards for the front, back and sides, and painted the handle with Pebeo acrylic paint..  I placed the pearls along the top and then attached the lace and  flowers.  Finally I coloured a piece of Seam Binding with a Promarker and attached it to the handle

That's it!

I thought you might like to see the Camelia and Helebores which are in flower in my garden,  There are loads of buds to come out on the Camelia.







Till next time .........................
