Hi everyone and thanks for dropping in.
Another little mini book to show you I'm afraid to say, but this one is quite different from the last....
I think minis are my favourite type of project to do, and whenever I find a new way of putting one together, I just have to try it out, I just can't help myself. The original design for this one is by Laura Denison, you can find a video of how to put it together HERE
It's made from envelopes, which means there is a pocket on the side of each of the pages, so plenty of space to keep whatever you want. I am going to use mine to store of my some of my Autumn projects, some of which I'll show today and some at some later stages so as to not make this post too long.
I'll give you a quick run down of both the cover and the insides:
I used two paper collections through out, DCWV Tattered Time (12 x 12) and Prima Timeless Memories (A4). I used the various papers as my base and then played around with stencils, inks and background stamping. The colours I used throughout where all Distress colours: Rusty Hinge, Dusty Concord, Hickory Smoke and Ground Espresso, I used both the inks and the sprays.
The focal image is a really old Tim Holtz stamp, still one of my favourites.
The book is held together with large die cuts, such a clever idea that, I used the Tim Holtz Layered Leaf die.
As you will see, all the inside pages are pretty similar, for the page on the right I used Ranger Clear Texture Paste through a Tim stencil, to act as a kind of resist.
Here I used another Tim stencil, or in fact two and background stamps from Indigo Blu, and Carabelle Studios, plus some old text and number stamps
Here as you can see, more resist work with the clear texture paste, and again using background stamps and stencils.
And here the final double page. More of the same, I also did some stamping with white acrylic paint, to lift the page a bit.
Like I said, each side has a large pocket, I will show the art work I will keep in there at some later stage, for today, just two small cards/tags:
Here you can see them on the first page, held in place by the leaf, - such a clever idea (Laura did some with snow flakes and all sorts of different large dies, I just love the idea).
And here a couple of close ups of the cards:
The main stamp here is from Inkylicious, mounted on a piece of gelli print.
This stamp is from La Blanche, - I just love that bee, it really does not need much more I think.
Well, that's it, sorry for this being a bit photo heavy, like I said, I tried to keep it short (ish), - more to follow at some later point.
The theme there is to use one of the techniques from the front cover strip, I think I almost used all of them and I just LOVE the new look Craft Stamper!! Well done Trish Latimer
Well, that's pretty much it. Thanks for your visit like always
