Getting Grungy !
Grunge Sticky Notepad holder
Finding it a bit difficult to use my sewing machine at the moment with this painful shoulder,had the MRI results,its fractured and part of the bone is lodged in my ligaments ! have to wait now for the surgeon to come back off his hols,another 2 weeks to go ..............
Thought i would try a piece of Tim Holtz Grunge paper to make a sticky notepad holder.
I used a thick layer of "Liquitex Gloss Gel brilliant" onto the grunge and let that dry then painted over with Acrylic metalic gold and bronze,(made a nice textured finish)I then glued onto some leather type card for the inside.
In Poundland i found a couple of packs of foam flowers and butterflies all different shapes and sizes,these i painted up for embellishing the front then found a couple of beads for the butterfly,used some brads to attach the flowers on.
Then i glued the sticky notepad inside another Poundland find lol a nice large oblong one,never seen that size before.A Tim Holtz hinge came in handy for the fastening,with a piece of gold cord burnt ends to pull through.
Didnt take long and kept me from going mad with boredom lol.......Just added a pink one done with my bind it all machine.
