Give me a "J"

Hello Bloggers ! :)

This time, I wanted to show you something different. My scrap taste has always been very eclectic, and recently, I've got into the "Shabby Chic" style and discovered the "Home Deco" trend. So I participated in a class given by Christine Van Roy and made this :









































I had a lot of fun while creating this frame, while discovering the techniques to age the wooden stand after painting all the elements. I also learned to display the flowers and the charm in a different way. The paper I used is a Pion Design one. I looooooove these papers, they're so sweet and romantic. Here, I cut a piece of the "Lilly of the Valley" one, from the Fairytale of Spring collection, and then I distressed the edges of this square with the Distress-it-All machine from Zutter. I liked sooo much using it that the first thing I made when I came home is ordering my own ^^ And I did the same with the cordless Bosch "Heat Glue Gun". I first bought the Artemio one (more affordable), but I fell so in love with the Bosch' greatest ease of use that I NEEDED to get one too... and since I can't do without it anymore. Cordless, short heated time (15 sec), auto-off function after 5 minutes, heating protection, charger station,... Just buy it, you'll understand (in french, we say "C'est le jour et la nuit" if we have to compare to other similar tools). The stamp is from Florilège Design and the wooden elements from Boanita. The leaves has been cut with the Martha Stewart "leave" punch, the Rosette with the Tim Holtz die and I used "Platinum" stickles to make the light shine all over =)
