I had a few nice days off this week and got a lot done in here. Apart from that it was hibernation time,lol. I really only went out when I had to , just did what I liked and chilled out a lot.
My kitchen had a little of an overhaul as well. The Housing Association only put 3 rows of tiles above the cooker. That means when frying you easily end up with greasy fat splatters above the tiles on the paint. I tried to clean it up, but scrubbing too much only results in taking a layer of the paint off. So I cleaned up first and then applied a new coat of paint-it's clean again !
I thought by having some images or artwork on the plain painted wall any reoccurring splat marks would not be quite as visible...so out came my stencils and stamps and the wall above the cooker became a trial for stencils,lol. It's different , somehow adds a sort of vintage Country Cottage style to my kitchen , which I was aiming for.
http://astridsartisticefforts.blogspot.co.uk/, a favourite place for this sort of style.This is what it looked like before ...
Besides that I made a few more Christmas cards as well....same blog page where I got the images from , just printed out and cut.
Anyway, with all this there was no time for scrapping or designing , but I have the freebie parts uploaded for you.
Here you go :
Next freebie next week again -till then
