Emerging from my sewing frenzy last week I felt out of sorts with the world of paper. I have a few projects I need to work on this week but I couldn't seem to get into the right frame of mind to start any of them last night - you know how it can be sometimes, when it's hard to find that creative place...

So I decided to break myself back in gently. I grabbed a handful of random stuff and just started glueing. In the end, and in about 3 hours (if that's slow, I was also watching a film), I made 24 embellishments!

Things I used were circles of card, punched and bought flowers, patterned paper, buttons brads, gems, epoxy stickers, bottle caps, chipboard, paper clips, crackle paints and - check these out, they're my favourite, especially with the crackle paint - wooden pegs. A close up:

Watch out for more embellishments on the way. I'll warn you, they're addictive!
