Birthday Blog

Good morning all, its my Birthday today, 21 again.

Yesterday i had a go at the triptych project over at PaperArtsy , i was lucky enough to already have the wooden frame and some metal card so here is my interpretation.

I didn't have the stamps that were used in the original piece or the colour paints so i thought i would use some home stamps that i had recently bought and my nearly favourite colour purple, obviously it goes without saying that there is a hint of pink in there too!

Thanks for looking, let me know what you think!

Button it

Hi, i have been on leave from work this week and have taken the opportunity to practically live in my new craft room!

One of the things i decided to do was enter the new challenge over at The Craft Barn which is called the alpha challenge, every fortnight they give you a letter and they challenge you to create something using a word that begins with that letter, part of the challenge is to use a dictionary and it will end up as an altered book, I have chosen to tear the relevant page out of the dictionary and paste it into one of my new journals.

I coloured the pages with distress ink in mustard seed then randomly squirted hot pink dylusions ink spray on it. I then stuck the page down and highlighted my chosen word which was VOICE, i knew i had this image in my collection so i stuck the image on and stamped the words 'button it' in black on the lips. I then attached two button die cuts to the lips and thread string round them. To finish i stamped round the edge using Hampton art stamps and used oil pastels to blend the cut out into the page better.

Thanks for looking and let me know what you think.
