Papertake Weekly - In The Garden!

Good Morning!
Yesterday certainly revealed that when your a crafter inspiration can spring up in the most random of times, for example when I was walking home yesterday afternoon from town I came across loads of Pine Cones on the pavement! Well obviously me being me decided I just had to collect as many as I could in my handbag as they will 'come in handy' sometime lol Lord knows what people in the cars going by were thinking when I was scurrying around on the ground picking up as many as I could! lol I managed to pick up 25 and tomorrow when I am walking down the same path I shall probably stop and get some more ...

I think that once I have sprayed them in Gold & Silver they will look great on Christmas Wreaths & Decorations especially as seeing most of them are rather large!

Today for the new PAPERTAKE WEEKLY challenge which is In The Garden I have combined it with one of the Tags from my Tim Holtz Creative Chemistry Online Lessons from Day 5. 
This tag is made using the technique of 'Stamping with Stains'.

This fits the challenge at:

Here are the Stains & Inks that I have used for the tag. 
Along with these I have used the Tim Holtz 'Papillon' Stamp set.

Lastly you may remember me showing you my Tim Holtz Corner on Sunday, well it is now in the process of getting an upgrade .....

I'm going to paint the bottom one red like the others but I'm not sure whether or not to paint the 2 new shelf boxes the same. I'm kind of tempted to do something crafty with them, what do you think?

Hope you have a good day & thanks for popping by!

Good on you for picking up those beautiful pine cones. And your tag is beautiful Nat. And as for the new shelves.......definitely attack them with your creativity. They'd be getting a crackle paint job and nice Timmy Stamps over them if they were mine. Maybe even some lace trimming too. Sadly.....they arent mine though, lol. Have fun. Lee x
