Another Book

Morning,guys well I have finished my other book,this is a large one,8 by 8,I have used Tim Holtz papers,and various elements,from Michelle s,Shop and from my stash,
Warning this is heavy with photos,sorry,guys,
 Inside pages,The first page I used,the umbrella Man,covered him with tissue paper then added some,gold croco crackle paint,to the umbrella,hat and boots. Then sprinkled some,glitter on,added the houses,the moon,had,the,bits at the top of the page I just cut,them off,then distressed,the moon,to soften it,and added the bits,I cut off to the top of the page.
 This is,another of Tims,dies,I have added,bits from my stash,the,stuff in the bird cage is,the hair from an old,doll,that Alfie had kindly chewed off for me,I made the flower,from other Dies,that I have been sent,I have non of the Tim Holtz dies,as my machine,wont cut,them these have all been sent too me by some of my lovely blogging buddies.
 This page was created in Serif,I have just added,some eyelets,to hold the mesh,on with as thought it looked,quite effective.
 This page I have used,Tims,Love stamp,then stamped onto the page,then onto tissue paper I have also stamped over the cog,then distressed a,free tag I got from a magazine.
 This is a fold out page,I have just added a tag,distressed it with,brushed cordroy,then sprinkled some water onto,it then dried it.
 This page I created the border with Serif,also the magnifying glass Then added pockets,Brass Owl,and a couple of,items,from my stash.
 Final page I have again used papers,from Serif,then added bits,and pieces,from my stash,the flower is from some old jewellery.
And finally the cover,I have used some lace,which I have distressed with bundled sage,so take the whiteness off,Then,took an old necklace,and added it around,the picture,which is from the lost and found pad. The acetate is from some old packaging,the flowers,I stamped,then cut out and,put together.The bird is also from an old necklace,then other bits,and pieces from my stash.


Well I am really sorry for all the photo's but thought you may like to see it all,lots of the charms,are available from Michelle's shop and the crackle paint,and tags are available from the craft den.
I have to do my weekly shop,again today and oh my god if you had seen Alfie when I got home last week,I left in in,the porch bit were Geoff leaves,all his old,work boots,and things,so its nothing special,I have just an old piece of mat in there,on top of the concrete floor.When I got back,Alfie had,pulled up the mat,and there was newspaper I had put underneath,and,he was black,his face you could only see his,eyes and oh his feet,were black to were he had been scrapping,to try and get,to me.
God I have never hated leaving a dog as much as I have Alfie oh the cries,he makes,its just heart braking,and I cant wait to get home again.
Still I have to leave him, thankfully it is not too hot today,take care guys hugs Cheryl xxxxx

Hi Cheryl, how lovely to see you here at addicted to stamps and with this fabulous creation ! Your book is amazing so many wonderful details on this stunning piece. As always you have created something totally individual. Thank you for joining us and good luck.

brenda said...

Don't apologies about all the photos Cheryl, you need them to show this fabulous piece of artwork. I can't begin to imagine how long it took you.

Alfie sounds a real little character, but isn't it difficult leaving them alone for any period of time. I got a bit engrossed on crafting last night, heard a bit of scrapping, checked to find the kitchen awash. Poppy had discovered water bowls (and ours is a big one for the labs as well)are far more fun when you paddle.
