AALLandCreate New Release

Hi and welcome today I have a further sample for you using the wonderful AALLandCreate new release.

I opted to combine the AALLandCreate stamps with one of my favourite dies the ScoreBoard XL Passport die. I applied Texture Paste over the AALLandCreate Stencil which you can find HERE.

Once the Paste was completely dry I then applied Dina Wakley's Heavy Body Acrylic paint over the top.
I machine stitched my front and back covers and added stamped pages inside. I also repeated the stencilling on the back of the cover. To highlight the wonderful texture further I applied DecoArt Metallic Lustre Gold Rush over the top of the raised areas.
I applied Texture Paste to a wooden frame, applying the Paste with a Palette knife randomly and applying using a dabbing motion to give more Texture to the Paste. Once the Paste was dry I then added a coat of Dina Wakley Heavy Body Acrylic Paint and added Metallic Lustre over the top.  I also added a gold trim around the edges of the frame to give a further opulent feel to the piece.

I coloured a piece of white card with Distress Inks and then stamped the eye image onto the inked card using Black Archival Ink. The eye stamp is available HERE. We also have a list of stockists on the site too.
Before adding any layers of paint I addede some numbers to the book to add a further layer of interest. I also included a little spoon which I also painted with paints and added a few touches of Metallic Lustre.
I also added a monocle to the top of the eye to highlight further and also included an eye created from Shrink Plastic.
I added some stencilling to the inside of my book using the wonderful compass stencil, which you can find HERE. I then stamped the eye over the top of the stencilling.
This page showcases the wonderful light bulb images along with some stencilling using Stencil Number 9 which you can find HERE. I also included a touch of background stamping using Stamp Number 25 which you can find HERE.
I added further stamping and stencilling to the other pages using Distress Oxides.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

As I said yesterday ~ "Too Cool for School!" Seriously, this is an utterly brilliant creation! All the layers with added textures & I'm SO jealous of the stitching. Can't go wrong with hardware on a project. Your eye with monical is genius! Adore the shrink plastic version too (I've been playing with shrink plastic, so fun). The paint colours happen to be my favourite (who knew?) Then there are the inner pages; beautifully done, the whole theme is my kinda "thang". You Rock, Tracy!😉
