Something Completely Different

It's Friday morning again! & we've blue sky & sunshine here today! The daffodils, snowdrops & crocuses are peeping & it's begining to look a lot like spring! Hope it's a lovely morning wherever you are today. :)

It's time for a new challenge over at Something Completely Different & a new month means a completely new challenge. We say goodbye to our Atc's & hello to trinchies!

A Trinchie is a piece of art measuring 3"x3". This weeks theme is love/romance. Here is my trinchie......



I've used Distress Inks to colour the background & a T!m Holtz Paris stamp. The image is from Crafty Individuals & lace & blooms from my craft box. I had lots of fun making my 1st trinchie. It's a lovely size to work with. :) Hope you can join us. :)

Wishing everyone a lovely weekend. Gez.xx

  1. Your 1st trinchie is lovely. Look forward to seeing some more. It is a beautiful morning here although there is still a nip in the air. All the snowdrops are out and the crocus are well on there way. Have a good weekend Gez. Love Lynne xx

  2. Hi Gez,
    This is gorgeous. I think I love your work because your style is so different to mine. This has a wonderful feel of nostalgia about it. Awesome.

  24. I am going with Paris on my 1st Trinchie, your is lovely. I do have to ask though I have the very same photo in CI Minitures P&P However mine the woman has the Efel Tower on the left side as you look at her, how did you remove it and have her clothing etc intacked? or was it a similar photo in a different book?
    Would love to know

    Love Dawn xx
