Busy Busy Busy!!!

OK you got me, i'm not super busy like that title claims... but i am entering the
Lots To Do challenge with this weeks theme which is 'Distressed'
I can't believe its saturday already, All i can say is,"wow the adults were right", the older you get the more time flys by, talking of flying that leads you nicely to my entry...
I sliced into a canvas and wrapped the cut pieces round the frame to create a shadow box type thingy, I backed it with my 'distressed' piece of cardboard.
The frame itself i coated with distress crackle paint and then splodged on some distress ink to darken the colour, it didn't really crackle like i'd hoped but it did leave a cool textured finish which was good enough for me.
I punched out a bunch of circles in white card and proceeded to ink and stamp em using Timmy products, these once dry were stuck inside bottletops and filled with UTEE adding a sprinkle of micro beads while the UTEE was still hot.
I created a little birdy scene inside the frame, making a cage from wire and cutting the bird from an old book page.
The white mass behind him is actually UTEE, which i poured direct from melting pot to TSS big daddy mould , i then dusted it with a smidge of perfect pearls.
I printed the wording on my comp as couldn't find any sayings i liked so i made up my own.
Finished with some twigs from my garden and a few musical notes and you have the finished artical.
***
I've no actual plans today for me which means a spot of crafting me thinks lol... was hoping to get an email with good news but i don't think its coming to me.. never mind.. am sure someones weekend will be made special, the lucky buggers... sorry don't mind me lol... i'm waffling to myslef here...
So do you have Lots to do today?...
Have a fab weekend peeps x
