Vanmorgen/middag een bezoekje gebracht aan The Stamping Cottage en toen zag ik de banner die op het event mijn boek adverteerde, kon het niet laten om met dit prachtige meer dan levensgrote exemplaar op de foto te gaan. Dank je wel Marga voor het maken van de foto. This morning/afternoon I visited The Stamping Cottage and saw the banner that show cased my latest book at the event. I couldn’t resist to let Marga take my photo next to this more then life sized awesome banner. Thank you Marga.

En hier is boekje nummer 5, eenvoudig cahiersteek omdat ik met vilt wilde werken en dat toch wat lastiger is. And here is book number 5, just a simple stitch because I wanted to work with felt and that makes things harder.

Here my project using Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko and Viva las VegaStamps. This awesome ink is great to not only stamp with but using it to mixed media projects as well. Love the rich colours of each and every type of ink.

I started to make a step-by-step photo tutorial but got lost in my art after the second step. I was so busy spraying, inking, sponging, stencelling and stamping that I simply forgot.

step 1: take a blank notebook or old book and glue the edges of all the pages together. Then draw a square all little above the middle and a rectangle the sixe of a matchbox on you righthand side slightly above the bottom. Glue all these edges as well, I used a gelmedium to do so. Give it a coat of gesso.

step 2: Take the goosebumps bottle and spray as close to the paper as possible, this way you get great drips downwards. After drying, spray the whole spread with Pear Tart, Fireworks Bamboo Leaves and Cotage Ivy. take a paint brush and paint the inner space of the sqaure with All-purpose Ink vegas Gold.

Then I forgot to take the photo’s, sorry!!! But I added different colours with a round sponge with Memento de Luxe and Radiant Neon, a red one in the centre of the square. Used a stencil for the dotted circles and used Memento de Luxe. Stamped the invoice and the numner 7c with Memento dye ink black and the Big Ben and the wasps with Memento dye ink red.  Then I sprayed Shimmer Spritz Sprakle on the spread (unfortunally that doesn’t show on the photo but in real life it gives it a subtile sparkle.) Then I stamped the whimsical Kids on a scrap piece of paper and coloured it with a waterbrush and Memento Dye Ink. Last but not least I sprayed the matchbox with the same colours Fireworks as I used before and coloured the front with Memento de Luxe. Tied a bottle as a handle and put some bottles in it. The centre square I enhanced with 2 bottles with a scroll of paper in it and a little butterfly on the outside.

Underneath you will find a few close-ups:

Over een paar dagen ga ik deze weggeven, en nu dus verpakt als kadootje, zo leuk om met de strikkenmaker er iets leuks van te maken. Leuk he, al die pasteltintjes. I will be giving this present in a few days, so I turned it into a real present using my DIY bowmaker. Aren’t the pastel colours of the ribbons awesome.

Was eigenlijk niet de bedoeling, en bij het 4de boekje ontstond het idee, ik had bij toeval nummer 4 gestempeld op de kaft op het vierde boekje. Dus besloten om ieder boekje een nummer te geven totdat ik 52 boekjes heb, een jaarproject dus, dit zou betekenen dat het 1 boekje per week wordt, maar loop nu dus even voor, wat wel fijn is omdat ik dan wat ruimte heb voor de weken dat ik niet kan. Hieronder dus de boekjes op volgorde tot nu toe. It wasn’t meant to be, but with the forth book I got this idea, by coicidence I stamped the number 4 on this forth book, so now I want to make 52 books, for each week one, I already have 4 within a week, but that makes up for the weeks I can make it. So underneath the books so far. IMG_0072 watermerk-30

boekje 1 waarvan ik de kaft nog moest doen/book number 1, I had to alter the cover.

boek 2, hier heb ik het nummer aan de binnenkant verwerkt omdat ik niet aan de prachtige buitenkant wilde komen/ book 2, here I put the number on the inside because I didn’t want to touch the gorgeous paper on the front.

IMG_0075 watermerk-30

boek 3, schriftje, heb ik eenvoudig gehouden, en deze stempel past wel bij het boekje/book 3, notebook, I kept it simple, I think the stamp suits the booklet perfectly

IMG_0065 watermerk-30

en tenslotte boekje 4, dit nummer eigenlijk gebruikt omdat ik de stempel zo leuk vond en laat dit nu net op het vierde boekje zijn, de aanzet voor dit project/ and last but not least book 4, I used the number stamp because I love the look of it and it happened to be the forth book I made, the start of my 52 book project.

Het is toch best wel spannend om het eerste boekje helemaal zelfstandig thuis te doen, zonder gebruik te maken van de expertise van Dymphie. Maar dit is mijn poging geworden, niet helemaal zonder slag of stoot, maar uiteindelijk toch goed gekomen. De stempels die ik gebruikt heb zijn van Viva las VegaStamps, het mannetje kreeg ik als kadootje voor mijn verjaardag van mijn schoonzus. Heb de kaft gemaakt van grijsbord karton maar dan zonder te bekleden, vind het uiterlijk van het grijsbord zelf zo leuk. De binnenkant is gemaakt van vellen stijfselmarmers om en om afgewisseld met handgeschept papier.

Its a bit trilling to make a booklet all on my own, without the expertise from Dymphie. This is my first try, making mistakes along the way, but finally managed to finish it. The stamps that I used are from Viva Las VegaStamps, the man with umbrella was a present from my SIL for my birthday. The cover is made from grey board, leaving it as is because I love the look of it. The inside has paste paper pages turn and turn with off white paper.
