Lotstodo Week 9 Challenge

This is a fat page I've made for the Lotstodo Challenge, which this week is on the theme of Crafty Individuals. The background has been created using meadow, lettuce and butterscotch alcohol inks. The image CI-110 was stamped on to acetate with black stazon and I attached it to the fat page using green staples. I used olive stazon with Tim Holtz's scratches stamp along the left hand side and finished with the word 'treasure' using the CI-156 stamp

The background for this tag was created with latte, caramel and ginger alcohol inks. CI stamp CI-101 was stamped with a combination of olive and black stazon. A piece of acetate was stamped with timber stazon using CI crackle stamp CI-116, with a section masked off where the stamped image was to be placed. The image and acetate were attached using a small eyelet where the hole for the tag on the image would be and a further eyelet was used at the top of the tag. String and beads were added and finally the word 'beauty' was added on top of the acetate again from CI stamps range, CI-156

This is a large piece of jigsaw puzzle that I picked up from the 'junk' table at Paper Paradise. I have covered it in CI papers from the CI background book. The 'dream, inspire & believe' were stamped with the CI-156 stamp. The image top left, sunk into the bottle top and the image in the square frame are both from the CI People and Places Minitures Book and the other collage pieces are mainly what I was sent in a bag of PIF goodies. (PIF = Pass it Forward)
