My 1st fat book page
This is my very 1st fat book page! I never wanted to start up another addiction so gave all the fat page swaps a wide berth but, a friend on Crafting Corner Forum (http://z6.invisionfree.com/Crafting_Corner/index.php?act=idx) has been ill for some time so the members have organised a fat book for her, well I couldn't refuse. I am also entering this into The Sunday Stampers wk 4 challenge (http://pinkleart.blogspot.com/search/label/The%20Sunday%20Stampers) which this week is 'Watch the birdy' - to incorporate birds into your project. Firstly I splodged green and blue Twinkling H2o's onto a craft mat with a paint brush then I spritzed a piece of white paper with water and and 'swooshed' (is that a real word?) it around to make a marbled background. I covered a bear mat with the marbled paper. Using a gorgeous UM Peacock stamp from Dimension Fourth and broken china distress ink pad I stamped onto another piece of the background paper. I highlighted the spots with green H2o's and the body with blue H2o's to give some definition. I glittered the body with clear glitter glue. I then mounted the stamped image onto a dark green card stock and placed onto the base. I added some green gems and some wool to the left side to finish it off. I also decorated the back with the same marbled background paper added some swirls using a HOTP stamp and broken china distress ink and then added a tag with a sentiment stamped on. Voila my 1st page done!
