Sunday Stamper week 316 - Everyday I write the book
For those who don't know, this is a weekly fun challenge set by the uber talented Hels Sheridan. All the deets are here
This week Hels has set the theme of Books, to be interpreted at our will -- alter a book, use book pages, make a book...as always time is short, but I do like to participate in this challenge if I can. I love to alter note books/make note books and this is probably my quickest project ever! To be honest, it helped get my creative juices flowing as I've been struggling a bit this week...
This started out as a plain 16cms x 20cms exercise book, which (of course) I forgot to photograph in its original state, but believe me it was very ordinary!
I first of all covered the book with this paper by Graphic 45, from a 12x12 French Country design pad. I inked the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink. All the stamps, except for the blossom are by Graphic 45. The blossom is by Jofy for Paper Artsy.
I stamped the word ' Creative' and heat embossed to give it a little lift and shine. I then stamped the script on to a piece of kraft card and inked the edges, then I over stamped the ink bottle. I adhered it to the book, tucking it under the last that I had added to the top.
Next I stamped the 'sign' on to the same paper, rolled one side and a corn and adhered to the book. I stamped the flower 3 times on to the reverse side of this paper using left over scrap pieces (can't waste any of this paper!), cut it out and layered it. After placing it on the book, I added a metal button.
I decided to add these ideology memo pins, thinking it would be a useful addition, but wanted to show how they could be used. I had stamped this phrase on to card but not used it, so I cut it out roughly and added it to a pin.
That's my offering for this week - thank you so much for stopping by!
Love and Hugs,
