I am suffering from serious blogging withdrawal! I have been to busy to even touch the computer except for printing some digital images. I made this during the week of Easter, but just hadn't been able to get it uploaded until now. This is a project that I tried using grungeboard. I gave it to one of the teachers that I work with. The bottom piece detaches. I figured that way she could use it at home to catch up on her sleep. With a "Do Not Disturb" sign on your door, you can dream away in peace.
The original pieces were Art Parts. Since they are a bit expensive to use a lot of, I tried tracing them onto grungeboard and cutting them out. The directions for this project are found in one of the Studio 490 project books. There are at least five different project books which can be found at the Stampers Anonymous website.The stamps (except words) are from different Studio 490 sets. Wendy is either really smart or has a great marketer. She uses stamps from different sets to do her projects. If you want to copy them you have to buy 3 or 4 different sets-very expensive at $25 US dollars each. The grungeboard is inked using Adirondack stamp pads and color washes and some Tim Holtz distress ink. The hand is a chipboard piece that I found at Michael's. I didn't have enough Tim Holtz gears so I used my gear die cuts and covered them with silver ink. I also improvised by using Color Me Crazy leaves by Petaloo and regular cheaper brads than the long fasteners by Tim.
I found a challenge from Pan Pastels that I thought this would fit under. I would love to win a starter set.
