Life

I made this little journal (for lack of a better word) using my Bind-It-All and it was my grungy project that marked the re-entry into crafting after my hands decided they didn't want to work properly a number of months back. I didn't do any craft for a few months and it has just taken a few months in addition to get some photos! I made it as grungy and messy as I could because that was easier on the hands than attempting precise and deliberate.

I got the idea for the flowers from Donna Salazar's tutorial on puffy flowers. The cover is made from Corrugated Board and Steampunk Debutant pattern paper. The blue paint is gorgeous, shimmery Jacquard Lumiere paint and I put some Snow Cap paint over the top to make it a little bit more blotchy. The little leaves poking out under the flowers are Leaf and Swirls Doohickey Die from Magnolia.

The stamp inside is Tim Holtz Urban Tapestry and I was selective where I put the different colour Distress Inks to make the bold words stand out more. I then put some Glossy Accents over them for some dimension. Each page is stamped top and bottom with various stamps from Tim Holtz sets.
The stamp on the back inside cover is from Stuff to Say with 'Possibility' and 'Imagine' accented with Glossy Accents.

This is fabulous - love the quote on the front cover!!
Sorry to hear you hands have not been co-operating - that must have been really frustrating.

Fantastic! Love all the quotes and the Art Deco lady on the front cover. Hope that you're hands are once again co-operating with you. Talk about annoying and frustrating!
