Sugar and Spice and All Things Nice

Good morning and Happy Weekend! If anyone has any daylight could you please send me some across, it's nearly 9 o'clock and it's still dark! This month IndigoBlu have a challenge theme of Monochrome, and this is what I've made.

It's definitely not my usual style and it certainly was a challenge!

The photographs came in a bumper bundle from the TV. I've given her a layer of clear gesso and then she's been crackled and sponged with Antique Linen Distress Ink.

I also got this beautiful rose stencil, so out it came straight away.

And a doily for goodness sake lol. I really had to dig around to find this, but it was the perfect size for the quote.

I must admit I did miss my colours, but this was a real challenge, so thank you IndigoBlu.

Enjoy your day, your extra hours sleep tonight, and thanks very much for looking x
