I am very happy to present my Scruffy book, which I produced for the PaperArtsy Challenge entitled "Paints With Infusions".
I began by selecting some Cardboard packaging. Tearing and cutting them into pages and then die cutting holes through them so that you can see through to the other pages. I used Seths' Spellbinder Word Circles 1 which comes with 3 stamps.
Next, I transformed some plastic buttons into rusty ones.
Page 1 is painted with Patina and then using a credit card, I printed lines using various paint colours. Added to this are Crackle Paste stars, sprinkled with Infusions and lightly sprayed with water. Rusty wire, rusty buttons and a Seth Woodchip shape complete it.
Page 2 is painted with a mixture of Infusions and Metallic Glaze. Onto this, I have stamped words with paint , more rusty buttons and a Seth Woodchip shape stamped and Glazed.
Page 3 is acetate. I have stamped on the back with Black Stazon and painted the shapes. I also managed to punch holes at the bottom and thread my shrink plastic stars.
Page 4 has a combination of Metallic Glaze and Infusions randomly spread across the page with a credit card. Onto this I stamped words, stencilled words added Crackle Paste and sprayed with water and sprinkled extra infusions. This time I stitched on the rusty buttons.
For my front cover, I stitched around the edges, added some stamped stars and a Woodchip shape and finished off with rusty elements and some fluffy threads and Sari Silk.
The backs of the pages are left plain for me to journal on.
I hope that this has inspired you to pop over to the PaperArtsy blog and join in with the challenge.
Thanks for looking.
