Hope you are all feeling splendiferous after your weekends crafting and are all in fine fettle for the week ahead . I myself am feeling somewhat drained , if you read my previous post then you will understand why. I was a woman possessed for a few short hours when a strange inner voice goaded me into creating something with circles which happened to be the next days theme on LIM ! For those of you who have asked for next weeks lottery numbers please send a cheque for 1000 pounds to the following address : Psychics R US , Greece. no refunds given.
So Why am I telling you all this well when the voice ” came through ” I was in the middle of creating a project for this weeks challenge over at Just for Fun, it was a particularly messy and inky project and I abandoned it in favour of ” the voice ” ( well it was very persistent ) After a long lie down and a large G & T I carried on and completed my project this weeks theme being ” Groovy Corrugations ” Check out Just for Fun for all the details. Gosh what a long segway that was !!
Now it has been quite some time since I have made such an inky mess ! there where upturned stamp pads everywhere , lots of the corrugated stuff and very inky hands and clothes! No surface was left untouched even the floor has some lovely DI stains ! I had so much fun and I want to thank Zoe for giving me a push in this direction hope you like the outcome cos I had a ball !
This is my first attempt at a mini book so I don’t want any laughing or pointing of fingers ! It’s supposed to be a bit grungy and distressed a bit like my face was after `I completed it but am having trouble getting there, I did try honest ! As you can see there is no escaping the usual flower but look !! it’s not in the top right hand corner ! the therapy is working maybe by next week I can produce something without a flower on it !
These are a few pages of the book , I wont bore you with all the details just suffice to say, I stamped, dabbed, ripped, painted, distressed more dabbing , gluing, un -gluing, gluing again, and so on and so forth I think you get the gist.
The men in my life quite liked it and thought it was a bit different from my ” Usual stuff ” although I do feel I have a long way to go before I can fully embrace this grungy look.
Please let me know what you think, well not exactly what you think cos that might make me teary eyed just sugar coat it a little bit.
Why not pop over to Just for Fun and see what the Groovy DT have come up with to inspire us all this week. Some fab entries form the faithful followers too !!
I would also like to enter this into the Make my Monday challenge who’s theme this week is Vintage Shabby Chic, torn or crumpled, well it’s certainly torn and crumpled Fliss just don’t know about the Shabby chic part ! This is my first time with these lovely ladies so why don’t you join in too and we can be newbies together ! Thanks Fliss for the tip !
