Heck - Friday already!! I do wish sometimes that these weeks would stop going by so quickly. Might have more time to get things done! LOL.
So here we are on Friday again, and that means a new challenge over at
Hope this one won't be too much for you, but we are 'Making Our Own Buttons' this week!! This was a bit of a reluctant one for me, as I don't like to use buttons on my creations. I don't know why, but I just feel uncomfortable using them, and they never look quite right to me.
But on I plodded. I hope I have got away with it though. I only made one button using gold mirri. I punched out two circles and embossed them in the big shot, punched some tiny holes in the middle, threaded gold ribbon through two of those holes and tied in a bow. Here is the finished button:
And here it is in place on my project:
This project is a bit of a work in progress. All the deets on how I made this and the rest of my project are on my 'not so mainstream' blog HERE. Below is a piccie of the Front Page of the project, which is an A5 sized book I am making in a medieval style:
And just to show that I HAVE used a Delicious Doodles image, here is one of the pages inside the book, featuring my brand new 'Gryphon' image which will be released to the
Delicious Doodles Shop tomorrow (Saturday)
Now I have to figure out what to put on the black pages. . . Ideas anyone?? LOL.
Here is a watermarked version of the Gryphon/Griffin, however you like to spell it. I prefer the old fashioned way better (Gryphon) as that is how we spelled it when I was in Primary School. It was one of our 'houses' which were all Mythical beasties - Pheonix, Unicorn, Wyvern, Pegasus and Gryphon. I'm going to be doodling the rest of these in the future too, so if you like Mythological Creatures, keep your eyes peeled for those!! LOL
Right then. Only a few challenges to enter with this project, so here goes:
Gingerloft - Animals
