The current challenge over at the Paperplay blog is to let a movie or book inspire you. I thought about it for a while, because I wanted it to be a book or film that meant something to me. Illusions, by Richard Bach, really gave me comfort when I was going through a very low period in my life, so I found a picture of the cover and stared at it for a while. Lol, and then eventually I made this, which I think sums up the way the book made me feel.
Here's the book
And here's the notebook I did. I just couldn't get a photo where all the black bits looked black, but the background is velvet paper and the image and text are glossy photo paper. In real life, both look very deep black, not that navy shade :P
And I think I'm also going to enter the book into the challenge over at the Digital Ink Co. blog, which is to make a last-minute gift. The silhouette stamp is by Stitchy, and if you click on her name you'll get to her blog, where you can see her other lovely stamps. But, this may not be eligible because I designed it digitally, and I heard a whisper that that might not be allowed. If it isn't, just ignore this, but I colour everything digitally now, because I find it so much easier being able to zoom in, and to have limitless colour possibilities, rather than being confined to whatever pens/paints I have. And, I actually made this keyring the day before the challenge went live, but it fits perfectly, so I'm going to sneak it in. But, lol, again, I coloured it digitally. This stamp is called All Dressed Up and is by M&M Designs, again available at DICo.
Lolol, and I'm also hopelessly un-used to uploading pictures to anywhere but PictureBay, so I have my fingers crossed that this will all look allright. ;)
