Tuesday Treasures

Welcome to Tuesday Treasures and I am showing a book I made on Sunday at a class with Lin Brown (Formerly LB Crafts), made with one sheet of 12 x 12 card, Fresco Finish paints and Leandra's (PaperArtsy) fabulous new sewing stamps. (Guess what I have had to order them LOL).


Stamping with brown Memento ink and colouring with Prisma pencils I coloured up the images and displayed them on the pages.


The background pieces are painted, masked and stamped to create these fabulous designs.


I have added some buttons, lace and other embellishments to add dimension and detail.


I didn't get finished during the workshop but came home and worked till 1.00 in the morning to complete it. I was totally inspired by Lin's fabulous sample and just had to get mine done straight away.

My sister should have come with me but is poorly at the moment so Lin very kindly gave me her Vintage sample to do with Chris, so I will be doing another one myself too.

So share your treasure with us this week, this is all about having some fun and hopefully meeting new people in our amazing blogging community.

Link your 'treasure' post using the linky tool provided below and please include a back-link to here so that your visitors can come and join in too. If you copy and paste the code we can share the blog hop with everyone who visits us both.

Have a great week. The Farnborough Air Show starts next week and already the planes are starting to fly in. We are almost under the flight path and get a great view of everything, just a shame there is so much low cloud and rain around again.

Take care.
