Mini Book class

Well its been sooooooooooooooooooooo very long since I posted. Between the Easter holiday and today I have no idea where the days have gone. 

I have the pleasure of teaching a class at The Artistic Stamper on Saturday, which can be found on their website
We will be constructing the whole book and decorating it with papers we will be painting and stamping together. Needless to say I am very excited about this one, and am counting down the days.

Outside of that it's all been a bit crazy, Which has really messed with crafty time, but I started playing again yesterday so hopefully I will have something to post soon.

April's Creative Challenge Flora and Fauna

I had a notion that instead of just looking at all the wonderful entries that are submitted on various blogs for challenges, that I should join in as well. This is for the April challenge over on The Artistic Stampers blog.

I was recently playing with some colour bursts and some colorex. both are watercolour paints and really fun to play with. This left me with lots of background papers to add to, I ripped two of the papers and glued sections onto a tag made from card stock, and then stamped over that using distress inks and texture stamps from The Artistic Stamper, I then mixed some paint with texture paste and added that to the tag in sections trough a mask and scrapped the remaining paste along the edges. This took way to long to dry I am so impatient.

I then decorated the tag with flowers made from book pages and bits of paper from the background, I stamped words onto a book page and glued then into place and added some metal embellishments.

Thanks for reading
