BFF Altered Book/Mini Album #10

Yes today we finish up with our final challenge in the BFF Altered Book/Mini Album. I know I had promised to post a few binding options as well but I haven't had time to get them around yet...I have to go sew today but I'm going to try to work on them tonite and possibly get them posted this evening as well.

On to today's BFF Altered Book/Mini Album Challenge #10

Today's sentiment is:

Friendship is like peeing your pants, everyone can see it, but only YOU Can feel the True warmth...

And your challenge is....

What else could it be...incorporate the color yellow into your design! LOL ~ sorry just couldn't resist! As a secondary challenge if you are up to it ~ Use at least one stamp on this set of pages that you haven't used in any of the previous challenges.

Here is how my page came together...

I started off by adding a single coat of Butterscotch Acrylic Dabber. I wanted a bit of the coaster to show through.

Since it looked a bit too "clean" for the feel of my book I distressed it a bit with Espresso Dabber.

Next I stamped my leaves (JFF) on both pages using Library Green Archival Ink.

I added a layer of Scattered Straw Distress Stickles to both pages and finished them off by adding my image and sentiment.

(The Stickles made it REALLY hard to get good pics)

Well, that's all she wrote!

Both literally and figuratively...

We've finished with the challenges and now all we have left is the binding.

Later tonite I'll try to get a few different ideas around and I have a few pages to share with you that were sent to me by a couple Ink Stained Friends :)

See You Then!

  3. Wonderful, Roni!!! Now I'll be spending all afternoon trying to decide how to incorporate yellow into my final pages. As for stamps not used yet elsewhere in the book--I have a couple of good ones I've been saving especially for this verse! Can't wait to get done with work and go home and play!!!
