But enough of this negative talk, - I'm here today to share my latest project for A Vintage Journey:
Tracey Evans is our challenge host this month and she chose Industrial as her theme. Do check out all the details about the challenge here
My project is part of a much larger one, a big fat techniques journal/minibook, that I started a while back, and today's project is the spine of said book.
It started with a large Prima tag that I altered with inks and sprays (mostly Rusty Hinge and Ground Espresso).
Next I worked on the focal image using some Andy Skinner and Seth Apter stencils on a piece of Prima paper, previously altered with the same colours of ink.
Here you can see the tickets, layered behind the focal image with the stencilled gent.
And here finally you can see how the finished tag turned out.
Below are some details still:
Some Industrial Stickers corners, and Ideaology arrow and a grunge board label rusted with embossing powders and paint. Perhaps you can also see some of the faux stitching around the edges. I explain how to do that in a post here
A clock part and some other bits and pieces left over from previous projects.
Another couple of little tags cut from my original coloured engraving board.
And here finally the finished spine adhered to my book.
Well that's it for today, I hope you have enjoyed my project, - do check out the amazing projects my team mates have created, inspiration galore!! Hopefully you will decide to play along, we would love to see you!!!
