ABC primer

Hello, and hope you are all having a fantastic weekend. I'm on late shift today but tomorrow is going to be a fabulous day as myself and Maria are booked into crafty bunch for a workshop organised by the lovely sue ( owner of crafty bunch ) and taken by the fabulous Pauline Wheeler. I'm a huge fan of Pauline's and she will be appearing on your screens for create and craft from next month. It's a altered box and it looks fab. Will show pictures when I've finished it. 
Anyway today I'll share my latest DT piece for Jones crafts, using the gorgeous ABC primer by graphic 45. It's a vintage style educational tool........




It started life as a white canvas and I covered it in Rangers Black gesso, made a little box to house the full alphabet and a clip to put the sums. I covered the pencil too, added various papers and chipboard from the special edition pack. 
This has been my favourite make in a long time and I really enjoyed it. 
Well must go break is over......
Have a wonderful day and take care, hope the sun is shining where you are. 
Big hugs Elaine xx
