Dt Post for It's Crafting Time..Altered Paper Mache Books

Gosh nearly forgota bout this post to upload,mind tooth ache and chest infection can cause you to forget.It was only when i saw the 3 books on a post in Woyww yesterday that it reminded me to upload my DT project for It's Crafting time blog.This week it was Distress inks .

Ive used various Distrss inks ,dried Marigold ,Spiced Marmalade,Frayad Burlup,and Fired Brick.I have really smooched the ink in with blending tool to get good coverage.I then used fired brick D/I on the binding of the book and edges.I have added a stamped image to the front done in distressed inks too .This image which was kindly given to me in a swap so unfortunately unsure of the name of the stamp or designer.Down the front and along the top i have used Kaiser Kraft paper with lines to make it look like a book .On the other side which for some reason photo has not uploaded is a sentiment from Tim Holtz stamp set "Just Saying".These are handy little books that can be filled with embellishments .Can be used and kept as wee storage or given out in a swap which this one will be filled with T/Holtz goodies the sent on it's way to my swap partner.

Please check by the It#'s Craftingtime shop as products available there.
