Tag Book

At my workshop on Saturday at Sharon's Card Crafts, I taught a class making a tag book using Stitchels Stamps, and our Tag chipboard, and my favourite of all a Bind-it-All! We used several techniques, alcohol inks from Kuretake, (now on the website!), chalks and a shaving foam technique using Adirondack Colour Wash Inks.I used the mini and the mini mini Stitchels stamps,just gorgeous to use, although not the most perfect scissor technique I have ever done! The little knob on the front of the book is one of Tim Holtz ideaology hitch fasteners, and I tied a little piece of fibre to the back to lock the book together. The inside of the book was done using chalks, I lurve these, and I coloured the edges too! For those of you interested in our new blog challenge, I hope you are up for a challenge- it certainly isn't for the faint-hearted, and if you are interested I shall be looking for guest designers too!
