Hello again. I (Zuzu) am here for my last Design team piece as guest designer for September. I loved it as guest designer seems to make me feel I need to try and pull all the stops out as a thank you for the trillions of Stamps Jennie sent me. So here I have an ongoing project that I started a couple of months ago when Hels first offered me the guest designer spot.
It's a box type cupboard that was filled with little hard back books. I altered the box and am in the process of altering the little books that go inside. I am showing you the parts that involve stamps from "The Artistic Stamper".
Here is the box front, very "secret Garden" and mystical. As the box was full of books I am keeping to a fairy tale and book theme on the outside too. Time because stories are timeless. We can see a fairy on the front, Tinkerbelle from "Peter Pan" perhaps, as well as the "secret garden", there is an ancient Egyptian beetle crawling across it as I was always interested in adventures from far off lands, especially Egypt; there is a swallow from "Swallows and Amazons".
On one side I have featured Alice in wonderland (Using the Mabel Lucie Attwell Alice in Wonderland stamps).
I wont go on about the outside and get on to showing you the inside as this is where the little books are that I've altered with Artistic Stamper Stamps...When you open the door and look inside there are more cogs, lots of rust and some stamping on the edges of the cupboard shelves (Using the Tick Tock plate).
Each of my wee books has its own theme, each called "the little book of...." and its theme added. Previously I did "The little Book Of Egypt" and "The Little Book Of Insects"... Today I am showing you "The Little book of time" and "The Little Book Of Childhood"....
Here is The Little book of Time:
And here is the Little Book of Childhood.
