Hello creative friends! I have been absent from blogging and I surely do miss this contact. Unfortunately, life gets in the way sometimes. My project today is for the current Hero Arts Contest.
My design seems so simple to me now, but it has been in the works for a while. It all started with this:
This is a fabric sample that I bought at an interior store for $1.00.
I cut the book with an old Sizzix die set Album and Page. I then spent some time experimenting with stamps and ink. The Antique Engravings set worked best with this textured vinyl fabric.
The inside pages were stamped with Antique Engravings, and my new set, Brush Strokes.
There are six different pages, but I kept the photos to a minimum :)
I LOVE this new stamp set! It reminds me of a newer version of the shadow stamps. I love the contrast of the modern strokes with the antique etchings too. I designed this little book more as an art piece, but it could easily be used for notes by your phone or even small photos. Black and white photos would be very cool. As you can see, I had FUN with this one!
