Wine is bottled poetry!

Hi lovely bloggy friends!  Its PaperArtsy week over that ~The Craft Barn Blog~ this week and there are some awesome makes to be seen :D

I have turned a teensy canvas (7x9cm) round and used it to make a little 3Dbox frame....

I have used some of PaperArtsy's new Crackle paper to cover the frame...yes, it really does crackle!!!  A section of Tando bunting came into its own along the top.  The 'frame' was painted first then I stamped on the Crackle paper and scrunched it up before glueing it on.

The surface was touched lightly with perfect medium and embossed with silver.    I stamped & embossed  Mini Bottles MN63, cut them out and put inside the aperture.  A miniature bottle was added with a poem inside :D

I love the effect of this crackle paper used like this so much that I covered a little frame for a lovely young friends birthday pressie.
