New stamp - another notebook

A new stamp I ordered arrived today - I didn't know what to 'do' with it, so made covers for yet another note book.

I will be adding ribons, fibres and paper beads - just need to make the beads first.

Bind it All notebook

Here's another little book I made, again the covers are from mount board. I will add fibres, ribbons, and a silver charm - when they arrive in the post.

I am going to make a number of notebooks, for fund raising later in the year.

They are nice to do when you feel a bit 'stuck' mojo wise.

The written word.

I am not in 'arty' mode lately - just messing about doing things for the distraction.

I saw that on Mixed Media Mondaythe challenge was 'The written word' so thought I would have a go.

I had a play making a card. I don't 'do' cards - seem to have a 'blockage' in that department.

It filled an hour or so though. It would have looked better on a cream card or even if I had inked the white card pale green or purple. It is very dark today - which is making the card look darker than it is.

Stamped on green card and added white for 'grunge' effect - coloured with inks.
Mounted on the purple card to match the stamped image, and painted the butterflies to tone in with the flower
