Hi all, hope this finds you all well and gettin' inky.
The current challenge over at the EWV Yahoo! Group is to do the project on page 30 of Wendy's Book Three. It also happens to be the project on the cover of the book. Or, if you don't have the book, you could use two ruler pieces for a roof. Since I can't share instructions from the book, without risk of being hunted down like a dog, I shall just show the pic of my project, and mention a few substitutions I had to make.
I have to say, I love Wendy's books. Well written, step by step instructions with great photos. It's like taking a class in your own home. Love it. That, and let's just say that you don't feel like thinking about what to do for a project. Let's just say. Open the book, gather the supplies, and VIOLA, a wonderful project created, all thought process taken out of the equation for you. Ok, enough blithering..here we go:
So, I didn't necessarily want to cut up some of my vintage yardsticks, so I made some ruler pieces using a wooden paint stick from the hardware store, Wendy's stamps, and wild honey distress stain. Looks real enough to me!
The BINGO card is from the Lost and Found paper stack, a substitute, as well as the rosette behind the 5 cents. Crikey, isn't there a cents sign on the keyboard? Guess not. lol. I suppose I could go out to the Web and find the symbol, but that would take entirely too much time.
So, there you have it. I really like this project, although I think the rosette is a little overpowering, might do something different with that in the future.
I highly recommend Wendy's books, you can get it from your fave retailer where you get your other art supplies, if they don't have it, ask!
Have a great day, thanks for stopping!
