Altered Book

Hi all. Made this altered book for the Country view challenge? Painty Pleasures. Enjoyed doing this project. Painted the book in black acrylic paint, covered with Teresa Collins papers. Used my six dis die cut, inked this with black and silver acrylic paint.

Love anything  Tim Holtz, so used one of Tim's embossing folder on the tag. Coloured the tag with Tim's distress paints, just blending the colours together. Made some flowers using Heartfelt Creations stamps and dies, then painted the flowers yet again using Tim's paints.....
This is how the book started on the left.  To finish added some silver hessian ribbon, then rubbed the whole book with gold gilding this product too.

Hope you like my altered book. Leave me a comment as I love to read them.

Surprise Box

Hi all. This month seems to be going so quickly. I made this surprise box.. It's a box to store some photos or chocs. Also a pocket to store tickets, tags etc.

Made this box using graphic 45 papers. French Country. Love these papers.
I am entering this into the Ali-Craft challenge. Anything goes.

The box which was attached to the inside, I cut the front out with acetate so the items can be viewed.

Hi to you all. Been having some good craft days, so could be on here with some more posts. Watch this space.... I want to enter lots of challenges this year, so my first will be Lavina Stamps Challenge.

Used this package item which had some plywood christmas decorations in. Distressed the background with different Tim Holtz inks. Used Lavina's stamps to stamp with.. Cut the background paper to fit the box.

Stamped and cut out the black images. Then embossed the Believe word with  wow embossing powder, with glitter added. Just added bits of glitter on fairy wings and bits of background.
Hope you like my creation.
