In The Garden (Anything But A Card)
We also have our very first Guest Designer this fortnight - the very talented Helene from 2amscrapper - she makes the most stunning creations so please do pop over to her blog, and take a look at her work.
As I've recently received some new stamps featuring birds, this was a perfect opportunity to get them out so I made a simple 4 x 4 notebook - I love this size as it's so handy.
Both sides of the back cover, and the inside of the front cover have been covered in dp (not shown) and the front covered with a piece of canvas, which has been lightly spritzed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Wheatfields. The eggs stamp and the rose in the top right corner are from Stampin' Up and have been tinted with Intktense pencils. The rest of the stamps are from Oxford impressions. The main image was also stamped directly onto canvas, but then cut out and matted with some Kraft cardstock, and a little lace added. I then edged the covered with a little ink and added a seam binding bow to finish. An antique bronze dragonfly was hung from a piece of chain and attached to the top of the binding wire.
In addition to our new Guest Designer, we also have a new sponsor this fortnight

I'd like to enter my little notebook into these challenges:

Bye for now
