Well another week that just flew by - and it really has been a week since I have been in this craft room!! So much so, I nearly couldn't remember where I'd put the giveaway for this month which I finished before going away for a few days. (Although regular readers will know I misplace quite a LOT of things.... and I'm such a tidy crafter....)
As some of you know, I have a slight stamp addiction (!) and I have quite a few stamps I've bought that have never seen ink, never mind daylight. At one point last year every other challenge seemed to have something to do with 'time' and I really struggled because I didn't have the right stamps (I sense a bit of rationalisation coming on). Then came the shopping trip to AP last September and I returned home with nothing BUT time stamps!! So, I thought it was about time (lol) I actually used some of them on a project and decided to do an altered board book. The main stamps I used are from a Paper Artsy plate.
I took some inspiration from two projects I had seen in Craft stamper but then kind of wandered off down my own tortuous route using book text, acrylics, inks, masks, pencils and of course stamps to create the finished project. The little panels on the back were made from pieces of fused angelina fibre and film left over from another project. I ironed them (again) over an inked stamp to get the clock impressions.
I have done another similar project in tandem to keep for myself but it is nowhere near finished yet so that will have to be the subject of another post. Meanwhile, if you would like to be included in the draw to win this little altered 'book' please leave a comment on this post to that effect. I really really really will try and come and look at your blogs this month - I apologise for being very bad lately, it is just a question of time. Closing date will be Monday 31st at 8.00 pm.
