Altered Book Frame...

Made especially for a few of my favourite challenges as I needed to try out my new craft desk in my new craft room - yes I have my own crafty space instead of making mess in the dining room.  In honour this afternoon I have just played and guess what I tidied up as I went along  -  I know that won't last :)


My altered book frame has been covered in metal tape (from B&Q) randomly.  Some of it was embossed and then pieces of sequin waste and small washers were placed on the book before the metal tape was adhered.  It was coloured with Stazon and alcohol inks.

Stamps used are from Paperartsy and Stampotique.
My stamped images have been stamped with Sepia Versafine and coloured with distress inks, Rusty Hinge and Wild Honey.
The grungeboard letters and leaves have been inked with distress inks before being embossed with clear embossing powder.  Micro beads have been added randonly around the frames and edges.

The above photo shows a close up of some of the texture......so here are the challenges I would like to enter:-






As I said these are a few of my favourite challenges where I try my best to join in so please check out the wonder examples from their DTs.  Hope everyone does not get too drenched in this awful weather here in the UK......Suzanne ~x~

I'm in love!! You know how much I adore tape and what you've done here is stunning. There's no way anyone would know that it started out life on a shelf in B&Q!! Love the colours, the images and most of all the texture you've included here Suzanne on this gorgeous altered book frame. I'm so glad you shared it with us at ABAC and I'm hoping that you'll join us again very soon!
Glad you've got your own space too - it made a huge difference to me and I'm sure it will to you too!
