birthday reminder book (take a word time challenge)
A new challenge blog has started called Take a Word and the theme is time. My friend gave me a little filofax but it had a very pink girly cover so decided to alter it..the diary is out of date in it now but I am using it as a birthday reminder book. I have covered it with paint, graphics 45 paper, rusty washers, rusty nail, vintage lace, painted foil and an old paint stained lid over the watch face. I tried out some of the TH clear crackle paint over the image but the effect doesnt show up that much! so think I prefer using utee and cracking it in the freezer. I found this new challenge site over at Sandys blog which is always worth checking out as she has some lovely art and always knows the latest challenges & workshops that are happening. Have just showed the book to my husband Pete and he can recognise all the washers even though they are covered in rust..one is off his old Triumph motorbike..happy days!!
