OK, I've known for quite a while that I wasn't a clean and neat crafter who looked after her tools and kept in nice and clean and orderly fashion.
Now there is public evidence of my bad habits.
I completely and utterly destroyed Leandra's brayer at Stevenage and I made a scrapbook page with the photo she took.
Picking up the colour scheme from the photo I started off paint some blue card in Turquoise and Lavender. Added some stamping using Hotpicks Xtra 8 Days and Months 3. in Aquamarine Archival. I took the individual stamped and put on a large stamping block some horizontal and some vertical to make a grid arrangement.
Added some stencilling with Chalk and also fave it a wash with chalk to blend the colours. I distressed the edges and added some Brown Shed to again echo the disgusting colour mess Id made of the brayer!
I drew around the photo on the page and then added some Lake Wanaka and Chalk and then used the little text circle from Emma Godfrey's Eclectica stamps No.2 to make a scallop border in Watering Can Archival. I went round the scallops with a black pen and also around the photo once it was stuck done.
I stamped a lot of the phrases from Emma's stamps in Sienna Archival, cut the appropriate ones out, edged in Black Soot Distress Ink and stuck on the page.
The page is clipped onto my scrap board clipboard and I'm really pleased with the concept and how it looks.
And yes it really is too funny!
