Altered: Wood block

I am still in the process of transferring my wood mounted stamps to the EZ Mount system so I have loads of blocks that I can re-purpose. I distressed it with Tim Holtz distress inks, added a few Stampin Up On Board ornaments & trinkets, and finished it off with Prima Say It in Crystals.

WW: Mini Album

I have noticed that inspiration seems to strike me in the most wonderful of ways. This was the case with my latest creation! Inspired by a picture mat I bought at Wal-Mart...

Rotated and distressed with Tim Holtz alcohol inks, stickles, and grungeboard elements I have to say I am incredibly pleased with it.

I embellished the grungeboard with alcohol ink and stickles

I used flocked patterned paper for the back cover which gives it a vintage-y look

Patterned Paper: Kimberly Poloson Flocked Cabana Blooms

Embellishments: Tim Holtz grungeboard, 7Gypsies gaffer tape, Tim Holtz alcohol inks, Tim Holtz Stickles, Picture Mat
