I have been dying to make one of the new smaller Tim Holtz Configuration books since they came out, so when Leslie at Alpha Stamps asked me to create one, I jumped at the chance.
Here is a rather juicy list of supplies from Alpha Stamps.
My favorite things about this substrate is that you can combine collage, bookmaking and assemblage all in one.
Inside I used sand mixed with matte medium to create a sandy scape. In order to add a bit of flash and sparkle I also added some mica flakes when it was still wet.
The inside cover is collaged with lots of goodies. I used my Xyron to ensure that each bit is covered in adhesive.
I love the beads I just happend to find right before making this, I thougth they looked like little sea urchins.
I also used a few weird treasures that have been in my stash for ages, like that rubber seagull. He is pretty beat up and I have no idea where he came from, probably a box of junk from my dad.
Here is a close up inside another box. Lots of layers for interest gives the eyes places to wander!
