Goooodly Morning Stampers and a very happy sunny summer Sunday
to you all! Big thanks to you all for joining in with the challenge
last week. Next week the Sunday Stamper will be on his holibobs so this challenge is a two-weeker. The song title and theme this time is all about... TRAVEL. You can make absolutely anything you fancy, be it a journal page, a card, a canvas or even, like I have done, a folio to start collecting bits and bobs from my travels. To
join in with the challenge is simples: make a little something, it can be anything you fancy. Add in the theme AND some stamping. Then hop back here, leave me a comment with a link to
the place you are showing your entry and I can come see you. If you
haven't got a blog, you can join in via Facebook (just tag me name) or
by emailing a small res.pic to me or by leaving me a link to your Pinterest or any other photo hosting site. The challenge will remain open until 21:00 Saturday 20th June 2015.
My entry is a Tim Holtz Folio that I have decorated using various stashly goodies. I started with some Correspondence papers... cutting them to size and corner punching them (they always look so much neater IMO) and edging the lot with Vintage Photo DI.
I layered up some of Tim's Ephemera... tickets and tokens and what-nots and added one of my new fave Framelits - the butterfly! Yes, here he is... much smaller than his original counterpart but so easy to use. Stamp the butterfly, pop the die over the top, die cut... colour... simples! I did the same with the little row of stars too and also added them on their own... just stamped in black Archival ink... I love stars and I think this might be a new fave stamp you know!
I also die cut some Mixed Media thinlets... love this framework, especially in black, it just adds that little something to a project.... and I also painted up an Alphapart thingy with Antique Linen DP... half dried it then wiped off the still wet paint to reveal a faux enamelled look... cool huh! Now all I need to do is take a shedload of photo's.... good ones too *actually, I might let Grim take all the photo's and then steal them off him!* and then I can get cracking at altering the inside of my Folio... I plan for it to be a travel-log of our adventures in 2015.
That's all from me for the time being... as I hinted, it is holibobs time... I will still be around *wifi permitting* but we are taking a well earned break *plus, there is the small matter of my birthday next Saturday which, of course, needs celebrating in style! And remember, all cake on June 13 is free from all calorifics... so fill your...erm... cakeholes!* Before we jet off to sunnier climes, there be another round of the BTCC to watch... so I shall cheer and shout... GO PLATO! Thanks for looking, have a great two weeks! TTFN
