We've arrived at the next challenge for The Fashionable Stamping Challenge, and this time we're going back to Nature. So, as long as your project includes some stamping and fits with the theme, we'd love to see it!
I've got everything crossed that this post will appear OK, as since I've been back from holiday yesterday afternoon, there's been alot of problems with an error code keep appearing. I believe that the issue is something to do with the AVG search tool bar, but as I don't have that open I've no idea what's going on !
Anyway, back to today's project, I've had to cheat a little as we were away on holiday last week so I've not had time to make anything from scratch so thought I would show you a couple of pages of a work in progress project. I attended one day of the last ever Artsycraft week ends before I went on holiday, I didn't get chance to finish the project so now I'm back I'm getting stuck in with it !
The pages are going to form a folding book, once I've finished it all I will be back to share, but in the mean time here are 2 of the pages ready to be sewn together.
The bird on this page was die cut from acetate stamped on one side with Stazon and then painted on the reverse. Lots of stamping on the strips of fabric and loads of random sewing !
The 2 dragonflies are made from PaperArtsy Crunchy paper and have been stamped onto with a text stamp and then screwed up. The material panel behind them has also been stamped using Coffee Achival ink.
It was the last ever Artsycraft week end and I'm so pleased I was able to book onto at least one day. These week ends have been amazing, not only the projects but the organisation that goes into them is just mind blowing ! To say I've learnt alot is by far selling them short. I understand the reasons for them having to stop, but that doesn't mean to say I'm not going to miss them !
I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge.
