October giveaway is here - nice and early!!

Had a good couple of days craft wise this week, still inspired by my visit to Ally Pally last weekend. When I am there I usually make a bee line for the LB Crafts stall, because as well as all the yummy goodies there are usually loads of demos going on. Had a bit of a discussion about my distress technique, and was inspired by some monochrome hanging samples (well all the samples were pretty inspiring!!). Is monochrome the right word to use for single colour or is that just black and white???



Anyhow, armed with my little chipboardy type books I decided to make some hangers and test out the instructions I had been given. I decided to do three at once using a selection of distress inks - Victorian Velvet, Dusty Concord, and Bundled Sage. The only problem with doing them all at once is I made the same mistake on all of them - waded in with my cropodile to add some extra holes and made all of them too far in from the edge to be accommodated by my split rings. Ooops! But not irretrievable in the end.



I decorated them with some bits of grungeboard swirls (and the waste lol!!), some grunge paper flowers, stamping, embossing and various bits of old bling that I found in my stash, plus of course the odd bit of inspirational text. The chain also adds a certain something so I'm glad I made the effort to use it (trust me, with my eyesight it is a challenge undoing and re-sealing all those little links).



Now for the rules of the giveaway, which is for one of these little hangers. All you need to be entered is to leave a comment on this post specifying which is your favourite (we'd better call them green, pink and purple) before 8.00 pm on Saturday 30th October. The 'winner' will then receive the hanger of their choice. So that's all, international players welcome, and please feel free to link from your own blogs. Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Oooh hard to choose - they are all lovely - but I think I'll plump for the purple one - love the Picasso quote!Thank you for being so generous, Cindy.

Lyndi said...

They are all fantastic Cindy. My favourtie would have to be the purple one tho as the Pablo Picasso quote on it sums me up entirely :o) - always willing for a go at anything just to see if I can do it...

They are all so beautiful!
I think the green one is my fave because it has some of my favorite quotes, plus I collect art with the word "imagine".

Thank you for this wonderful opportunity!

They are all wonderful Cindy, thanks for putting them up as a giveaway. I love the verse of the green one and I love the colours of the purple one. Oh dear! I have to choose........ um green I think for me.

nayski said...

Cindy, these are wonderful. I'm not listing a color because I was just lucky enough to win a monthly giveaway so don't include me in the draw this time. I just had to comment on how beautiful these are. You've really been busy!

Terri Kahrs said...

Thank you for your generosity, Cindy! To be honest, choosing just one is sooooo difficult - they're all so beautiful!!!! Hugs, Terri xoxox

Sherry said...

I too make a bee line for the LB Crafts stand, then go back again after I've looked everywhere else! Love their demos and products too.

Your hangings are all fab! Very difficult to choose just one, but I'll say green as that would go best in my craft room (if I'm lucky!)

Thanks for the chance!

I guess I'll have to choose the purple, since I love the message, but they are really beautiful.
You should think about something like this for my shop. I think they would fit just great.
