Guest Signatures

'Guest Signatures' ---- Eclectic Elements

How do you keep a unique and personal handmade wedding guest book looking good for years to come?

Well this month at Unruly PaperArts the focus is on weddings and for my very first column (called Eclectic Elements) I am creating a hybrid Wedding Guest Book and an unusual way to keep it.  Yes in fact I would say it's a very unusual way!!

My title 'Guest Signatures' is a play on words and there's a big clue there especially for those who bind their own books.

So if I've tempted you then you need to pop over to Unruly PaperArts for the full details, which is where you will also find numerous articles and ideas for your inspiration from my fellow columnists and guests.

If you love altered art, I am sure you would like to take a look. I have used digital images, stamping, sewing and paper collage in these mixed media pieces and there are a couple of links to YouTube videos to help you re-create something similar if you want to.

Have fun with your wedding designs.

Tuesday Treasures 3

Welcome to Tuesday Treasures where you can link your favourite piece of art, whether it be a card, altered item, in fact just anything that is special for you this week.

I had a great day with Lucy of True Colours, a couple of weeks ago. For those of you who know Lucy, she makes these amazing altered bags and she kindly not only showed me her ones (and they are fabulous IRL), but she gave me one to alter. So having completed most of it on the day, I brought it home and just finished off the stamping and added the trim.

So this is my Treasure for the week.

I won't tell you how it is made as Lucy is going to write an on-line class for it, so keep an eye on her blog for when she is ready to begin.

What is your 'Treasure' this week? 
Why don't you link it below for fun so that others can come and visit you. I certainly will.

Have a great week and stay healthy.
