Hello Everyone--it is still very cold here today and there is snow about still so I have been enjoying a crafty day
I thought I had left it too late to enter the Tando creative Challenge but there are still a few days left so do join in as the subject is Flowers so lots of choices for that.
I knew I had time to do the challenge at Try it on Tuesday as that has only just started--hope you go there and see the wonderful things that the DesignTeam have made--so inspiring for sure.
This is what I have made to combine the 2 challenges.
So what is it I hear you ask???
I asked Vic for a pair of his old jeans--he has loads that he says are for gardening. Well he sure doesn't need that many pairs so I chose the worst pair to recycle. The flash went off so the jeans look a lot paler in this picture than they really are.
I had a loose leaf folder that was getting shabby--sorry I forgot to take a photo of it I was too excited about covering it. I cut off part of one of the jean's legs and covered the book by slitting the piece of leg up the middle back when folded I stuck all the excess to the inside of the book and covered the insides of the book with some papers from a craft magazine. I made the flowers from the inside of the back pockets as the denim was like new inside the pockets. The flowers were Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die cuts and I also ran them through an embossing folder to make them patterned. Next they were coloured with Promarkers and I added a brad to the centre. The leaves were a Joanna Sheen stamp.
So you can stick denim, die cut denim, dry emboss denim, colour denim. stamp on denim and I am sure there are loads more things you can do with it. I still have another full leg, a half a leg and a body to go--thinking cap on.
It now has the loose leaf pages back inside and some of the cards that I have made and not used.
Thanks for joining me.
Love Chrissie xxx
