More altered papers

Hello all and welcome, specially also to new followers, thank you for coming along on my arty journey!

I am on a mission to use up some of my huge collection of papers, and so I have now finished the second little mini book I have been working on this month.

I have shared in detail in earlier posts how to put minis like these together and also how I go about altering the papers used, if you are interested, you can find descriptions here, here and for the construction of the little book here.
Like usual I have used inks, background stamping, embossing and die cuts.
Most of the stamps used were designed by Gabrielle Polacco.
And here the final two pages, using exactly the same techniques once more, just with different colours.
Most of the dies used are from the Tim Holtz wild flower thinlits set.

And one final tag, to fit in the side pocket between two of the pages:
I embellished the tag with a couple of little home made Tyvek beads and that was pretty much it.
Well, I am glad my little books are finished now, - high time for some different kind of projects and art work, but more of thast in a few days to come. Thank you for your visit like always!

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
