Vintage Journeys - 8th Chunky Book Page

Page 8 is here at last!

I'm in love with that suitcase I made from scratch! :)
..could it be that Vagabond I'm waiting for? LOL

....Stamped the T!m Paris map in DI tea dye (second stamping) and coloured parts of the map that looked like woods with green DI tones and the river with faded jeans and background in general with pumice stone
...stamped the T!m car onto grungeboard in Archival coffee adding a touch of aged mahogany and wild honey for colour and cut out
...stamped sentiment "live the life" in walnut stain
...stamped word fragments "no journey" in Archival crimson onto some cava wrapper and stuck to some grungepaper that had already had a T!m script stamp on it
...added a piece of K and Co ruler paper that had previously been stuck to some thick cardboard down the side and added the screw brads....only now I see that these will no doubt be in the way again of the binding so will not be covering up the prongs on the back so they can be easily taken out again....so sorry Heather!!

Only one more page to go :) I'll have to fit that in over the evenings this week...along with mowing the lawn front and back whilst it is dry...putting sealant on a leaky gutter...trying to tidy away some of the devastation that has occurred in the making of the chunky pages etc..etc!!!
Thanks for looking and happy stamping
xoxo Sioux

  7. Great page, Sioux - and don't worry about the screw brads, I don't think they'll get in the way as I'll only be binding the books in the middle - the books are too chunky to risk me messing them up with my Bind It All !!! Heather x
