A Work in Progress!

It was the monthy meeting of Efemera Ink on Monday and we made these..... as I had already made the seaside one as a sample I wanted to make something different.........and as I stuck my shelves in the wrong way ( a happy accident as it turned out!). I thought I'd do it portrait instead and have a bird theme.
I decided to go the vintage botanical, specimen kind of route



I needed a short word to fit the space but wanted chunky so I made my own printers blocks..



Take a sheet of Mr Tim's letters, cut out and cut six or seven pieces of chipboard the same size...glue them all together and cover the remaining sides with patterned paper........


Instant printers blocks!

The paper is 7 Gypsies Conservatory.....
Finished project appearing soon!
