Melt Pot Fun

Yesterday I spent a lovely day with my friend Nicky {i know double trouble right!}
We had lunch and then went and enjoyed a lovely afternoon with Hels Sheridan and the Melt pot @ Craftasmic in Taunton.
We played with wax for the first half of class then onto utee for the second, creating a little canvas with both elements.
I also treated myself to some goodies with some birthday money I had from my OH's parents and my friend Nicky.
All in all a super day had by all xo

A Vintage Journey {it inspired me to blog!!!!!}

Yesterday saw the launch of a brand new challenge blog
It's a vintage and shabby chic style Tim Holtz inspired challenge blog run by the ever so wonderful Brenda Brown and supported by a whole host of wonderfully talented gals. You must go check it out.

The first theme as you would imagine was 'Anything Tim' though mine turned into everything Tim lol

I started by making a hidden book stack from envelopes, I then inked um all up with distress, I used papers from the French Industrial pad, along with some of the new ephemera pack pieces to decorate the front. I also used a Tim stamp {from the shabby french set} for the postmark , and some pearl beads for the feet.

I chucked in a few alteration die-cuts and some copper idea-ology bits and bobs.

The inside I keep a little lighter, a bit more shabby, using more of the papers, ephemera and die-cuts, along with some lace, rose ribbon and tag.

I pretty much spent all of yesterday happily making this, I hope you like it too.
{oh and wish me good luck, i've applied for the last DT spot!}
