Hi - it's our time for our first challenge of 2015 over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and it happens to be my turn to choose the theme. I went with something nice and easy for the New Year - 'Something New'. Now this could be a creation with a New theme or something made using new stash...or maybe even trying a new technique, the choice is yours. I've started a new project as part of a Facebook group and needed a sketch book to keep techniques and ideas in - and of course it needed decorating.
The central panel was created using new stamps (Artistic Stamper) and a new technique - wax crayon resist. Crayon was drawn around the stamped words before applying distress inks. I'm going to b using/handling this notebook a lot so left embellishments to a minimum with just a key in the corner to add some interest.
As always my fellow FSC teamies have created some beautiful works of art so please head over and check them out. I hope you feel inspired to join our challenge - Don't forget we are a stamping challenge and we especially need to see that the stamping is the focal point on the project and that this must follow the format of the theme. NO Digi stamps please, but digi downloads are ok to enhance your project. Our sponsor is Flonzcraft and the winner chosen at random will receive a voucher for $20 - we also give special mention to our top 3.
I'm also sharing my book cover over on the following challenges -
Happy Crafting...Esther xx
