Sorry to see the end of the Just For Fun challenge as it was just that. Have not been able to take part as often as I wished but today sat down and had a play for the last time with this group. The theme this week, thanks to the lovely Neet is Men - distressed.
Now I did think about stamping a male image and adding Glossy Accent tears in his eyes but went for the distress techniques instead and this is the result.
It's a Life's Journey's mini book by K&Co that I have had for ages (years) and didn't know what to do with is. Started out plain cream but I added bits of book page that I removed getting ready for my AB on-line class with Altered Book Lover Elizabeth, Distress Stains, Distress Inks and gesso circles. The strip down the spine and the stamped panel are from a bronze coloured metal sheet embossed using Ten Seconds Studio plate and tools (bought when LB Crafts was closing) and I added a shrink plastic man and a few charms.
You can see the embossed spine more clearly in this view of the back.
Can't believe I'm on here when I should be enjoying the sunshine so I'm going to get Sorrel and go out for a walk but not before I show you what the Postman brought about an hour ago.
Remember that baby blanket from last Week's WOYWW? Well it went of to my Forum pal and in return she made me this gorgeous bracelet - how stunning is that? So Pleased with it and can't wait until the weather is warm enough to wear short sleeves again so I can show it off.
Postman also brought my prize from the lovely Jozart, for guessing her mystery object - some very pretty paper lace and some stamps. How lucky am I. Thanks Jo the lace has found a new home in my stash but it is so pretty it won't be in there for long before it all gets used up.
Better go the dog's looking at me with soulful eyes again.
