This project was completely inspired by Linda Ledbetter and her amazing Curiosity Crew. They put together such an amazing array of projects, I could not help but to play along.
This post is super long, so I warn you in advance! Check out the great latch I added to close this fun folio. I have included an image here of the back so you can see what the base of the project looked like.
Here you can see the great translucency that Ice Resin gives Tim's tissue wrap. Some of my grungy stenciling and background can be seen peeking through.
I imagine I could keep on working in this book for a long time yet! It needs some doodling and journaling.
I used lots of the new vellum ephemera from Tim Holtz. I ran most of my stuff in this book through my Xyron sticker maker and it worked great. You can also see above where I used eyelets to attach my book to the folio along with a bit of E6000. The combination of a cold connection and heavy duty glue made for a perfect combo.
Note that I added some stenciling after the project was complete. This way I added a final layer of ink on top of everything.
This week's contest for the Compendium of Curiosities is sponsored this week by Inspiration Emporium. I have not placed an order there before, but their site looks yummy!
The vellum has such an awesome translucency, I just love it.
Home made envelopes, paper bags, tags, tissue tape and tickets are sprinkled throughout my book.
Some of the ephemera is simply clipped on. I like to have the element of movement to my work.
I used lots of scraps from my resin tissue wrap in this project as well. The round postmark from the British Post office is one example below.
I hope you enjoyed today's post! I sure had fun creating this project! Thanks to the whole crew for an amazing week of inspiration.
