it is challenge time over at anything goes challenge blog again and this time the theme is ...anything goes!
So he is, my bit of anything goes:
I decided to do another book as these are fab and very addictive!!This time I tried to do a more masculine themed book, using some fab stamps from the Artistic Stamper, some idea-ology and some arts parts shapes.
I started by covering the book with watered down gesso!shocked you, no crackle today!!!Then when dry inked with distress inks and left to dry.When dry I stamped the fab splat stamp from journalling plate in antique linen and then vintage photo.When dry I added some calligraphy script, also from the artistic stamper.Once totally dry I stamped some Tim pen nibs in walnut stain, heated to dry and then stamped a smaller version of same set in coffee archival.
The middle panel was White card coloured in antique linen DI, the I stamped the journal word..imagine in same DI, to get a very subtle effect. I then added the splat stamp using vintage photo and pen nibs in walnut stain.
The sentiment is a journalling stamp from the Artistic Stamper and the bottles are arts parts from Wendy Vecchi, coloured and crackle paint and metal tape added the top(this was also painted).Finally some idea-ology was added and some computer generated text added.
Sorry another marathon post, must try harder to waffle less and get to the gist, but then I never was very good and short and sweet, why use 1 word when 10 will do!!
Anyway make sure you hop across to see all the fab dt work and for all your craft needs visit Lynnes craft den.
