Heavy Metal - 9th (and final) Chunky Book Page!

I never thought I'd see the day!!! LOL :)
Here is the 9th and final page for the swap organised by Heather.
Although I have been very concerned about finishing the pages on time I have enjoyed making them....I just wish life had not thrown what it did at me then I could have started earlier and I might have enjoyed it even more.

...I used some of the metal tape that I made the mirror with on my 5th page to cover a chipboard square frame (I have very little left of that tape and I'm hoping it is easy to find in the DIY 'cos Pip gave it to me and there is every chance it's some sort of specialist tape they don't stock!) Alcohol inked it up with sunset orange/stonewashed and salmon
...The faux tortoiseshell stuff on the corners you may have caught a glimpse of on the suitcase from my page 8
...this is black shiny tape from the DIY not quite sure what you really use it for but if you alcohol ink it with raisin/espresso and terracotta then go over again with copper mixative with a couple of drops of blending solution you get this effect
...stamped the T!m pens onto Ten Seconds Studio metal, cut out and glued to the frame
...stamped the T!m sentiment in Adirondack stream and the umbrella man in Archival black (just could not miss him out in the T!m inspired chunky book)
..adding a little T!m flourish in Adirondack wild plum
...corners stamped with a Paperartsy dotty stamp in pumice stone
So there we have suis fini!!
The pages will be in the post on Monday and off to Heather who is binding them for everyone and I can't wait to see the finished book and share all the pages that everyone else has made :)

Thanks for looking and sharing all the chunky book pages
xoxo Sioux
