Fun with Distress Ink.

Tomorrow I´m going to teach a class in distressink. I´m a bit nervous because I never do a class like that before , so I have been playing with distress ink the entity day. After prepareing for my class tomorrow I look through my distress books byTim Holtz and came across a very sweet idea for a altered book I just have to try to make it..........take a look












The book cover is made by clipboard and it`s put together with two pices of rule and two bolts with nuts ( lucky that I´m married to a carpenter) the small letters got some glossy accents and the frame is colored with distress ink and water.








I made some accents with bottle caps, letters, stickers and glossey accents.....and glue them on some hair neddles....take a closer look




















It was so fun to make this book and I`m think I`m ready for my class tomorrow....well they are not going to make a book like this......they are going to learn about distress ink and some diffrent techniques.

By the way today we celebrate shrovetide and here is a photo of my sweet daughter dress up as a Chinese

Øj Lisette, de der kapsler dem lifter jeg da vist lige. Super idé at bruge en hårnål som "clips".. :D

Flot album forresten, og meget fin kineser!
