The dark side

Hi Everyone,

Again another weekend so therefore no crafting! Yesterday (Monday) i seemed to spend the whole day glued to the TV catching up on the awful events in London.

Anyway i have been working on an altered book over the past few weeks to give my 'dark side' an outing! lol. There is still a lot of work to do on it but thought you might like to see a work in progress? For those of you who liked the cards i apologise in advance.....
This double paged spread was achieved with some paper folding to create the pockets. I used distress ink to colour the pages, rubbing it through a stencil for the circles. Of course the stamps are Tim Holtz ones, i think the umbrella man lends himself to so much.
This is a 4 page spread that was coloured using the paint dabbers, the borders i doodled and coloured with water colour pencils. The image on the fist page is cut from a card someone special sent me whilst i was in hospital and the theme of love and caring runs through all four pages.

Hope you like them and will keep you up to date on the progress of the book!

Thanks for looking
