Grunge it up baby!
Bit of a return to form with this one lol! This is for a swap on Lots to Do Forum hosted by Hilda. We have to make a ruler book, inspired by Andrea's creation, the only rule being it has to be grungy!!!
My rule is cut from a piece of Tim Holtz paper and backed onto mountboard. The title of my book is 'whats the rule!' (geddit? lol)
I covered all my pages with pieces of
Northanger Abbey (yes, still!) and sprayed them with glimmer mists. The 'angel' is an image of t'net. I cut her a pair of wings from some paper scraps, infact this project was fab in that I revisited alot of my old stash. The buckle on the adjoining page was from a QVC kit I purchased about 4 years ago.
The next pages are just a mix of stuff. The fact that halloween is on its way inspired the raven and the 'nevermore' sentiment. Infact, Edgar Allen Poe's raven seems to have inspired me quite a bit over the last few weeks! I found the 'always' tag languishing at the bottom of a tub, so added the tag (from Crafty Secrets) so it reads 'bless our family - always'
This is the last page in my book and I love it's gruesome connotations. I started off with the clown (evil clown!) image again from some Tim Holtz paper. It reminds me of John Wayne Gacy,
plus I HATE CLOWNS! It all started with Pennywise LOL .Also, my hubby and I had been discussing films like Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Devils Rejects - hence the house image and recipient insane stamp. In the words of Pink "This used to be a fun house, but now it's full of evil clowns..."
Thanks for looking :o) (and dont have nightmares)
