I started out wanting to make an altered canvas...however my brain tends to wander off on it's own little journey and I ended up creating an Album to hold my 3 beloved sheets of T!m Stamp Sets :-) I took an 11x14 flat canvas and cut it in half with my bandsaw (power tools arrr arrr arrrrr..yup I love Tim the toolman Taylor too). I adhered Papers from Tim's Crowded Attic Paper Stash to the Canvas covers, then had a good ole time inking, distress staining, stamping and embossing. My fingertips and shirt are covered in many pretty shades of Aged Mahogany, Dusty Concord, Bundled Sage and Brushed Corduroy right now LOL I embossed a Tag with Tim's Notepaper Texture Fade, then cut it out to resemble a Library Card and wrote the names of my 3 Stamp Sheets on it. Then I cut a piece of Co-oridinate paper to make the pocket and embossed it with Tim's Gear Texture Trade folder. The Clock face inside the front cover is from his Lost and Found Cardstock Sticker Stash, the gears in the middle of the clock face were cut with Tim's Mini Gear Movers and Shapers Die. I edged the front cover with Tim's Tissue Tape..ohhhh how I love his Tissue Tape! I then used my Drill Press to drill the holes in the covers and added huge binder rings..let's face it, I do plan to own many more of Tim's Stamp Sets so I need to use huge binder rings...I dream BIG! I really need to save up for a Binding Machine because the Drill Press is NOT the best tool for these books.
I'm entering this Altered Canvas Album into the Simon Says Stamp and Show "Show a Lord of Tim Holtz Technique" Challenge and to Linda's StudioL3 Grungy Monday Challenge.
Thank you for looking :-)
