What a horrible day today here in West Sussex. Dark and raining all day and chilly with it. I thought it was summer now!
I am hoping it's dry at the weekend, as I have an outside market to do on Saturday. I also have one on the following Saturday, so I have been busy making extra stock.
These are some little books I have made. They have an A6 note pad and a pen inside.
For the one below I used some old Art Impression stamps. I coloured directly onto the stamps with a mixture of Marvy Le Plumme pens and Distress Inks. I used a Nestie Die to cut the card and whilst it was still in the die, I added some Dusty Concord Distress ink around the edge.
Now the Bird Houses are from different stamp sets. Most of them were free with magazines. I stamped them with Nik Bantok Charcoal Grey Ink and coloured them with a mixture of Copic and Promarker pens.
All of them are decorated with the smallest flower from the Nestabilities Aster flower die set. I added the colour whilst the card was in the die.
The small piece of card on the right hand side is the tag which holds the book closed. I have used sticky backed velcro to hold it in place.
All the papers are from my stash. I have told myself that I am not to buy any more paper until I have used some of my stash. I have 17 full boxes of 12"x12" papers and 16 A4 boxes. Also 8 ring binders full, 6 drawers of paper pads, 2 drawers of vellums and 1 drawer of pearlescant papers. Also a pile of paper that I can't get into boxes. And that doesn't include Christmas papers! Phew!!
I am now off to bed as it is 01.30 and I have to be up early tomorrow.
