Morning everyone, a non design team post from me this morning…I really need to start doing more of these !
I have been working on a pick me up book….called so because it is going to be filled with pictures of everyone & everything I love, and also some of my favorite inspirational quotes & sayings.
Those that know me, know i LOVE all things vintage and distressed, so this seemed like a perfect “theme”.
The pages of the book & the cover are all made from kraft card, The tags are all made with Papermilldirects hammered card. I also mind the spine with this, and then using Copics, distress inks & waxes I coloured the spine to give it a leather look.
The main image was watercolour card coloured with distress inks and then spritzed over with some water, once dry I took one of Sheena Douglass’s stamps from her A little bit sketchy range
I stamped in Tea Dye Distress ink & then “painted” using bronze mica powder….this picture doesn’t show the mice too well !
I then added some frantage & brands.
The sentiment stamp is from LOTV Dreamy Days Circular sentiment stamps
which my dear friend Marilyn got me for my birthday, for a pick me up book the sentiment seemed perfect ! I stamped in Versamark and then brushed gold Mica over the top.
I then added a kraft rose (tattered florals style svg file), a resin rose, Tim Holtz Pin, Mini peg and mounted them all on some net.
I am really happy with how it turned out, and will start filling it up today 🙂 I will get some inside photos once I start putting some pictures & quotes in there.
Have a lovely crafting day x
