The Keeper

Hi Peeps!

Today I'm sharing another altered book!! Yup... another... I am LOVING making these, quite therapeutic really and I love the end result. The new releases from IndigoBlu are just perfect for this kind of look too!



Big shout out to Jenny again, who so kindly sent me some book base die cuts and this gorgeous Birch Tree Die. Doesn't it look perfect with the Cartography papers peeking through from behind? 

I used their English Cottage paint in Hot Cocoa on top of a coat of Black Gee-sso Good.


This time I decided to fill the pages with some stamping. I've learnt a few lessons again, which is great and just makes me want to do more so I can improve. 

The above stamped page is from the Map Background stamp. Reminds me very much of Lord of the Rings realm :)


The stamps on this page are Calculus and Mechanics


This one is Script. I have a few word or script stamps and this is one of the best out there. A script stamp should be a staple in any collection and really recommend this above the others as it is a great size, stamps cleanly and the lettering is just perfect!!


This lady is called 'Elsie'. I stamped her after I had the paper crinkled, but I really like the abstract way she came out!! 

Come check out what my other teamies have made here, they are a super talented bunch.

  3. Wow, this is amazing, Georgie! How awesome does this tree die look over the map! TOTALLY! Such a cool design! I found a charm I bought with a cool bee and have been wanting to use it in a similar way. Great minds...
