For this topic I chose stained glass windows. The front window was made from some acrylic packaging, I drew a window with pearl pens, which give a raised line.. Inside these lines I used alcohol inks for the coloured glass.. This window swings to the side, and underneath there is an explanation of stained glass.
On the back of this page is a fabric pocket with tags with examples of stained glass windows. I also stamped a window on inked paper, and embossed it. It is now on it's way to Canada.

I love elephants, my mother collected them, and as I inherited them, they are now all over the house. Stone, pottery, metal, alabaster from Italy, volcanic ash ( I bought that one from Etna), glass, crystal,, and loads of wooden ones. I am now adding to them by making books with them in. (no not the ornaments)
These are for a swap for a chunky book. As I have already done an altered book, I thought this would be a doddle. I have lost my way a bit, and found them a chore. It will be interesting to see what I get back. They are a mixture of collage, stamping, friendly plastic, and fibres.
Not quite back into the swing of things, but did manage to do a few swaps recently that took a bit of time. The template for these was a Stampington one, and I hope I have managed to do the right size. They flew off across the Atlantic yesterday, so I will find out soon enough.
