Hello, my name is Dionne and I have been crafting for a very long time. As a very young child my mother tried to teach me to knit, it was a disaster. However, it must have sparked an interest in making things and, partly to prove that I was not totally useless and partly because I really wanted to make things, I taught myself to crochet. Over the years I have developed a love of cross stitch and all types of paper craft ..... I eventually even taught myself to knit.

I am married to a very understanding man, thank goodness, because I spend all my time either crafting, thinking about crafting or talking about crafting. I am hopeless at housework and dinner is often late!

Thank you for visiting my blog.

Blue and White Letter

Good morning

Thank you for dropping by.  The current Challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges is 'Blue and White' and today I wanted to share with you an initial letter 'N' covered in blue and white buttons.

I was so pleased with how this one turned out.

I purchased an 8 inch MDF letter from Barry on ebay.  I gave it a coat of Gesso and, once that was dry, I painted it light blue using acrylic paint.  I also purchased a bag of mixed blue buttons from ebay and used these to cover the painted letter, the bag of buttons contained some very interesting shapes and textures.  Once everything was dry I cleaned any excess glue from the surface.  

Don't forget to enter your blue and white projects into the Crafty Boot Challenge.
