Gifts under £10 - Neil

After a week of gifts under £20, we are now doing gifts under £10 this week.
Not that long now before Christmas, how are you getting on with your hand made pressies and decorations?
Helen Chilton will join us later this week with some lovely altered bisque plaques, but in the meantime, Neil is with us today with this beautiful collage/stamping book. This would make a great gift for anyone who keeps a diary, does art journaling or sketches.

I love books and journals and think they make a great gift. You can of course cover any book this way.
I cut random pieces of chipboard and covered each one with various layers of stamping and tissue tape to create decorative tiles. Each tile is then covered with 3 layers of UTEE to glaze.

Neil used:
Paperartsy stamps (LPC009, LPC011)
Archival ink - Jet Black, Olive, Plum, Coffee)
Distress Stains - Dusty Concord, Faded Jeans, Peeled Paint)
Double side tape (extra strong)

This week again we have a prize draw feature across the blog, newsletter, Facebook and Twitter 
Three vouchers are up for grabs: £25, £20 and £15.   
It’s easy to enter, simply place an order on line with us.  Everyone who places an order between 16th and 22nd November will automatically be entered into the draw and at the close three lucky people will be drawn at random to win the vouchers

See you tomorrow
