Little books, potato prints & marbury swans (lots to do challenge beads)


I bought grungepaper a while ago but have never really used it but it was ideal for these little stamped books. I have used a tiny journal book stamp from Scrollswork and stamped onto spray dyed grungepaper. I have added some threads, beads and charms. The theme over at lots to do this week is beads so be sure to check out the other entries.


We went to Marbury Park today and had a lovely walk looking at the swans & cygnets on the mere, the squirrels, cows grazing and lovely wildflower meadows..such a lovely park and with a playground to keep my sons happy!


Over at UK Stampers Effie suggested we use potatoes to stamp with...so this afternoon my 5yr old made this lovely picture using a fish stamp I carved for him....its looks very batik like doesnt it and I think he has done a marvellous job!
