Brasso Challenge

Over on New Generation Stampers Trish B dreams up challenges for us. I tried the Brasso technique challenge with a couple of magazine ad pages. This is one that I found in a small advertisement booklet that I received. The image made me think that she was lurking in the shadows, perhaps she is a detective or she is hiding or waiting from someone (think maybe I read too many suspense novels!!).

You take the magazine page, and rub the Brasso over it to remove the inks, leaving whatever portions of the page you desire.

I just added a couple of stamped words to the page after doing the brasso over it. Not sure if I will add anything more, but will leave it and mull it over for a bit.

Playing with Slide Mounts

CC Swaps is running a swap for items made with slide mounts; no cards or ATC's allowed but something different. I have not joined yet, but thought I would play around with the slide mounts to see what I could create.

The first thing I did was a little booklet. I stamped images acetate then coloured the white plastic slide mounts with alcohol inks. I added some embellishments and then glued them to large cardstock slide mounts, then added some fibres to bind the pages together.

All the images are from with the exception of the one on the first page which is from

Front and back covers

The second item I made was a slide mount pin using a stamped image under a slide mount glass and added some old jewellery pieces, a charm and a bail.

Recipe Tag Swap

I have not posted for a while as I have been busy with various social activities as well as a lot of other things.

I recently joined a recipe tag swap in the Chunky Book Artists Group and this is what I created.
