We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

In the frame!

Last week the Fearless Four got together to create something using a paper mache square frame, but no restriction on what to do with it.

Which is a good thing because our previous challenge I have yet to finish - my excuse being that I was unable to use my craft room for a couple of weeks, but really, I struggled with the challenge, which was to do something using black, white, grey and one other colour. So I still have to finish it, and I may have to cheat on that one and introduce another colour; I'll do a post about it when it's resolved!

Back to the frame, and I decided to create a background on watercolour paper using stamped and white embossed images with Brushos.

And for the frame, I was inspired by a project in the latest issue of Craft Stamper magazine, using tissue paper, die-cut shapes and embossing powder.  Pleased with how it turned out, and I would use the technique again.

To finish I used some Dylusions sprayed card, stamped and die-cut some daisy shaped flowers, and created some stalks using the same embossing powder.

I'm entering it for the current Craft Stamper challenge - Take a stamp - anything goes.

I was the only one to finish the project, so I'll post everyone else's projects later.
