Altered Art for StampTV

I wanted to share this project with you today....I am loving it even if I did create it. My spur to make it was a 3-D challenge this week-end at StampTV . I had bought this book by Martha Stewart which is an accordion book and at the time is spoke to me of Fall, so I decided to make a book to hold Thanksgiving pictures. I think it would be wonderful to list the menu, guests and pictures of friends and family. I used my two sets by Gina K designs--Autumn Beauty illustrated by Theresa Momber and A Year of Leaves illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger, which are two of my all time favorites. I started out by using Memento inks in cantaloupe, tangelo, rhubarb stalk and bamboo leaves and sponging randomly over a piece of GKD ivory card stock. I then used Versafine vintage sepia to stamp some of the leaves which I then cut out. I layered a piece of tan leather over chocolate and stamped a few of the images from Autumn Beauty, then using pop dots I layered the leaves over and around some raffia. I also stamped some of these same images including one of corn shucks throughout the pages of the book.

There is also a coordinating bag that I made to go with the book.
I am going to be on the outlook for more of these in other colors, as I can see all kinds of other ideas with this theme....birthday, showers, and even just an everyday theme. Hope that you enjoyed seeing this and if you missed my TMITA card for today...please just scroll down.
Have a great one and I'll see ya soon.
