Grow with Love



Week 2 of the 'On the Farm' challenges over at Gingersnap Creations and this time we were asked to use some  'Raffia,' Supply Challenge  GC 126
I knew I had some somewhere,  isn't it amazing what we crafters have,  or save, sure in the thought that one day it might  be useful.
I started  off by plaiting the raffia to make a frame.
 Then came the idea of a corn dolly. [ no corn, but still some raffia to use up]. Now I have never made one before and have no idea what they should look like,  so its all experiment.   I hope that if you make these items, you will forgive my very  basic efforts.
The stamps used are from the Artistic Outpost , the farm boy I shaded  with watercolours, I think  he looks a real happy young lad.

Thankyou for stopping by to take a look, I realy appreciate your comments.
