Another fortnight, another challenge. (I'm infatuated by all things British.) I want to begin this one by a heartfelt thank you for all the kind things you guys say on my blog. You humble me and encourage me. I feel so honored to be on this creative journey with all of you. YOUR talent amazes and inspires me. Wish we could have CC3C party!!
Well, let's just have our CC3C party here online! This challenge is a set-your-Tim-Holtz-self-free project! Use Tim's Worn Cover binder and go crazy. Embellishment it, alter it, paint it, ink it, spray it, just go for it! Page 35 of Compendium of Curiosities III will give you some starting pointers, and I'll share things I've learned doing my project, too. Remember to get your own copy of Tim's book to work from. I think he should have called it World Crafting Encyclopedia. Fabulous source to go back to over & over.
I stamped and sprayed a piece of Sticky Back Canvas with Distress Spray Stain in Antique Linen. I wanted to use Hitch Fasteners to affix the inner binder rings. This is not my idea, but I don't know where I saw it, so I'm sorry I can't give credit. The stem on the Hitch Fastener is not very long so I had to remove the eyelets that are prepared on the spine of the Worn Cover. Then I was able to screw the things together.
The tag slides in and out of the frame. I love Dina Wakley's new stamp set and this stamp especially. I decided I stamp this on everything I work on now because that little stamp kept prompting me to carry on. Stay brave, girl!!
