DT Project #1 by Minxy : Featuring

Hay you snazzy folks, So have you been enjoying the G45 offerings so far, I hope so.. There is still plenty more to come starting with my first project of the week

It started life as a plain 8x8 canvas board.
I pulled out some of the cream and black papers from the pad for this project.
I started with fancy side of 'Mercurial Masterpiece' then inlaid with a slightly smaller piece of the diamond side of 'Olde Curiosity Shoppe'

I used a scrap of the lined 'Optical Oddities' paper to line a tag, and a scrap of the dotty 'Mercurial Masterpiece' to cover some old chipboard letters I had in my stash.
I doubled up some of the Idea-ology Rose Trimmings, and finished with some G45 metal flowers and gold Perfect Pearl spritzed paper roses.
Now came the fun part.. I got 3 wooden mouse traps, removed the metal bits I didn't need and painted them with Studio Black Gesso

Then I cut some of the 'Optical Oddities' signs to fit the traps.
I embellished using the G45 matching Chipboard shapes.
To pretty it up a bit I used some lace from my stash to edge the bottom and to hang I used 2 of the Idea-ology Swivel Clasps connected together with a brass brad and one of the G45 Chipboard Shapes.
And there you have it, A very handy clippy note hanging.
Thanks for stopping by, I'll be back on Wednesday with my next project.
Till then Stay Inky
