Memories of a room!

I finally got 5 mins ( ok a bit longer than that!) to make a little ART yesterday, and this time I have inked up grungepaper, and added some of the new bird stamps...loving the birdcage..., and entered Linda's magnificent challenge! Called Compendium of Curiosities, it is a challenge where you follow a page of Tim's book, and make your own art!! Strange how using these new stamps, a background stamp and  a little bit of the ruler ribbon, kind of made this tag evoke an old room with a birdcage, and bird!
I did bend the grungepaper a little, and used silicone glue to raise it up.. Never have been able to use this stuff.. always end up with it over my hands , the desk, and then the tube always dries up before I have used it again!!
I am not allowed under the rules to tell you how I made it.. you need to see the book. Please pop along to Linda's magnificent blog to have look at the gorgeous artwork being created.
Have a very CREATIVE day!

I'm with Lori-- your are a gorgeous-art-making MACHINE, Jennie! This is just another example of why you're one of the coolest crafters on the planet. It's stunning, from the sweet stamps to the lovely vintage tones to the cool ruler tape. Love it!

I'm so happy to know I'm not the only one who can't use silicone glue without creating a big mess! :-)
