Hello! well, winter has well and truly arrived in our home… my OH is now heading into week 3 of his cold and I started last week, and still don't feel right, hope it doesn't hang around too long!! Its my turn to post over on the Tando creative blog today, so its a good job I already had this made, although not photographed!!
The theme for this week is "anything goes" this is where any makes that don't fit into the normal weekly schedules can be posted…. here is my make:-
Us crafters like to recycle yes? well, whilst looking for suitable material to make covers using my Eileen Hull sizzix journal die I espied the recent amazon delivery packing… just the right size, so off it escaped to my craft room…lol. It works brilliantly, just the right thickness to create lovely sturdy covers. After cutting I added some Ranger texture paste thro' the Tando Creative criss cross stencil, once this had dried I added a wash of white and brown acrylic paint. Distress ink was used on the edges and to add further stencilling using my favourite sequin waste. Some rub ons and treasure gold were then added to the base.
A bird from the whimsical birds 2 set was added, this was painted using acrylics and then stencilled with white paint… doodling was added along with glossy accents to finish him off.
Thank you for visiting my blog today and I hope you like the finish result of my journal.
