Twiddleybitz RAKamania Bloghop!

HELLO THERE!!
And welcome to my leg of the Twiddleybitz RAKamania Bloghop.
I hope you have enjoyed the bloghop so far.

Aren't  the Twiddleybitz Design Team the best??
If you ever need inspiration when you want to make or create something
these are the girls to provide it.
TO LIVE and breathe art is what these girls are all about.
(hmmm...now why is that highlighted in red?? hehe)

If you have come here half way through the hop, you can find the schedule over at the ning
and while you are there you will find other ways of winning some great prizes, get inspired and have some fun.

Last year I was a bit silly and had photos of Hugh Jackman and The Hoff in my blog post.
Don't worry I won't be doing that again. ;-)
Nope......

.............................

 This time round I'm going for

 Gerard Butler!! :-)

sigh

(hehe, you do realise that there this is method in my madness...not only is he great eye candy,
but he also grabs your attention in other peoples sidebars!! hehe)
(*she says as she looks over her shoulder to see if DH is about *)

Oh, but that's right...
your here to see what I have created with Twiddleybitz!!
;-) 

This is my Secret Garden Shadow Box.
and yes it is rather big.

I have used a Twiddleybitz ornate shelf and adhered it to the front of a 12x12 shadowbox.




I cut the ornate flourish off the top of the shelf and added it to the top of the shadow box
painted it and then added TBZ rusting powder all over it.
 LOVE LOVE LOVE that stuff!

 

I did the same with the TBZ Birdhouse and the Wishing Well.
and the wheelbarrow, and the shovel and watering can and the fence and the chicken wire..and .....
well,  probably the only piece of TBZ I didn't use rusting powder on was the tree
(I used Impasto on that. ;-) )











So that was my Secret Garden Shadow Box.
Now.
Down to business.
:-)

Its RAK time!!


To win this RAK...



All you have to do is leave a comment.
yep that's it.
just leave a comment.
and your names will go into a draw.
The winner will be announced on Sunday 13th of November.
(  international entrants welcome ;-)  )

Now for the next wonderful DT members blog for you to go visit on the RAKamania hop  is the
uber talented TIFF SAWYER
Can't wait to see what she has in store for us.

Thanks for stopping by.
And as always,
Take care of you
xx
