Hazel is the hostess with the mostest this fortnight at the Craft Room and in readiness for the change of the seasons Hazel would like to see our projects with:-
Trees and / or Leaves
Another well know sponsor for this fortnight too ......Crafty Individuals - a super prize will be sent to the winner courtesy of them.....
My contribution to the design team this fortnight is a handmade journal (yes ...my husband is still doing the actual binding ....I just cannot seem to master the instructions for the Zutter Bin-It machine ...but to be honest I am not trying too hard especially as he is so willing and able ....lol):- I also hope that the journals are popular at the Handmade Market in October.
The journal is 6x6 in size and is made from greyboard. I have covered in paper and then applied texture paste (which I had already coloured gold) through the harlequin stencil.
The tree is from PaperArtsy and I have embossed this with black embossing powder. I then coloured the background with a mixture of distress inks. The leaves were also stamped, embossed with black before inking with distress inks.
Hope to get an opportunity of visiting your blogs but I am on holiday in Cornwall (hoping that my dad remains well) so please bear with me .....
Take care, Suzanne xx
