Hi everyone, I made this little accordian book just before I went on holiday but didn't have time to post it on my blog.I found a tutorial by Dina Wakley on Stampington &Co blog featuring this Garden Grunge book and I just had to make it. There are lots of layers from old book pages,spray inks, stencils and stamps. The stamps are from Dina's new range called "Garden Grunge" and they are gorgeous. The inks and paints are from the Dylusion range. I love everything about this little book I hope you do too.

Here is September's page for the Art Calendar hosted by the lovely and talented Kate Crane. This page turned out completely different to what I had planned. I began by spraying my pages with Dylusions inks turquoise and lime and then using the herringbone stencil sprayed black through it, didn't like it at all so I covered it with 2 coats of Gesso et voila I love the effect it has given, so muted. The journal pieces are tickets cut  from Tim's die on my Vagabond. I stamped the September directly on to the page using Archival black. Next week I am going to New York for 8 days so my embellishments at the bottom are NYC themed, the apple stamp I bought at the Ink Pad the last time I was in NYC, the New York sky line I cut from a Making Memories Die, the flag and big apple words are from a magazine. Hope you like it
