In The Library

It's time for another Craft Room Challenge, the theme is In The Library and it has been chosen by the lovely Debi. Here is why she has chosen the theme and what she would like you to create.

 I love books, if I'm not in my studio I've got my head in a book, so for my theme I've chosen, In the Library. I want to see books, stamps of books, mini books, altered books, pages from books, text, script .... I think you've probably got the idea?

Our sponsors for the challenge are  Rogue Redhead Designs .

Rogue Redhead Designs specializes in vintage, eclectic
 and modern stamp designs. Pressed into quality red rubber, these highly detailed images are sure to impress. 

I have an old book of birds so I photocopied a couple of pages and I'm sorry to say that I didn't draw the birds but used some Joanna Sheen bird stamps. I love these stamps but they don't get used very often.

The Kingfisher

I used a watercolour pad and watercolour pencils.

The Swallow

The rest of the DT have made some wonderful samples so why not visit the Craft Room Challenge to take a look.
