Quite a few of you last week had been tidying and I thought 'I can do that' so here is my desk Tuesday late afternoon (still the same this morning).
Bit of a cheat actually as the only reason it is tidy is that I was glueing my altered book and didn't want to get gel medium all over everything - again. As you can see, all the stops came out finding pegs and clips to hold it together and keep it upright overnight.
The other thing on my desk is a double concertina book I finished yesterday. It is for my Great Niece's 20th birthday on Friday and it is based on an example by the lovely JoZarty who brought her sample to our stamp club meeting the other week and very generously shared the 'how to'. Hers was in black and white and I loved the idea so used the same with a touch of lilac, or is it lavender, never too sure of the difference. The pages flip open on alternate sides, the cover opening to the left, next page the the right etc so lots of surfaces to cover.
The butterfly on the front cover came from a friend's die cut - only it didn't, cut that is, except around the shape. Still the non-cut-out bits on the wings look pretty as they are so I decided to use it. Top and bottom borders are from my new Memory Box die and the little 'shell' shapes fell out of the curlicues so I used those as well.
Here are a few more pages from the book.
I tried so hard last week to get round all the desks over at Julia's Stamping Ground and managed well over a hundred, lets see if I can do better this week -and lets see if I can put the right link in to my page this week - dumbo.
