This month it is "Anything Goes" which is handy as I have made a Birthday Book.
I used to religiously write up my birthdays on next years calendar, something went wrong this year and I seem to have missed out August completely. So, I thought that it must be time for a proper job, and decided to make myself a Birthday Book.
Using Clarity stamps, and masks and coloured with Spectrum Noir pencils. Lots of distress inks in the background and sky, using Clarity stencil brushes to ink in the hills and clouds. A second generation stamped tree in the background. I love how the poppies stamp has worked to make a ribbon along the base underneath the children dancing and playing.
The back was made by repeat stamping the lovely floral corner, so William Morris, another favourite stamp, colouring with Spectrum Noir pencils and edging with Distress inks.
I laced the front and back together with pages between for the months and dates to fill in.
Then I made a couple of tags ready for up and coming birthdays.
I love the heart stamp and the "Happy Birthday" sentiment. The bows are coloured with matching Distress inks and then scrunched up.
Thank you for visiting and reading about my designs
