New venture

Hi all, today I wanted to tell you of my new venture, Shenwell Crafts.  Shenwell crafts was formed from my love of beachcombing.  I've collected many items from the coastline along the Moray Firth and wanted to find a way of using them and so I came up with this:

These are just a few of the altered bottles I have made so far, if you click here you will be able to veiw more photo's on the Shenwellcrafts blog. I have heaps of drifwood that I plan to change into boats, mobiles, wall art etc.

As I build up my stock I would like to try my hand at selling my creations through craft fairs etc.

I invite you to follow my journey and welcome all your comments.

Altered coaster

I made this hanging coaster for the coaster swap on our CardMaking forum:

 I used an embossing folder to cover the coaster and surrounding card.
The dies I used were: Die-Namics Locks and Keys: Spellbinders Cogs.
I aged it all up with DI and sanded.

I will enter this project into the following challenges:
