Cloth, no paper and stamps

Well it's been eons since I posted. Sorry about that. Last saturday I took a drive to Columbus Ohio with my friend Barb B. to take a class from one of my favorite instructors, Amy Flowers. She teaches classes in the altered arts theme. I had received a postcard from Amy outlining some of her upcoming classes and I called and signed up for 2 classes. Heavy Metal Book and She's Come Undone. Believe me when I say I really wanted to take these classes because the 1st class started @9:00 am so I had to leave here at 6:30. I hate getting up early. I would rather take late classes and stay up half the night. Oh well, the drive was 2 hours and Barb & I caught up on things and in no time we were at Amy's studio.There were 5 or 6 of us in the class and three of us were named Barb. When Amy mentioned the name Barb we all answered.It was to funny.

Amy gave us canvas & cloth and stamps & inks and and we did a wee bit of sewing, and below is the end result. (Make sure to click on the individual pic's for a much better view.)

Well this was so much fun and I had no theme in mind but used a slew of stamps in my stash. Quite a few of the stamps are from Innovative Stamp Creations. I really love their stamp line. As soon as I finish the other book I will post it for your viewing pleasure.

Hope you enjoy viewing this little book as much as I did making it, thanks for stoping by and I will see you soon.
