More Journal RR Pages

First, some Art Bra news!  The ArtBra site is no more.  There are still a few 2011 and older calendars left and they can be purchased from Ribbonsmyth  Once they are gone - they are gone!
 I received an order from Joann's of the new Cuttlebug Quilling dies.  There are three, Chrysanthemum, daisy, and carnation/rose (shown in that order is the pic).  Here is a pic of the flowers I made experimenting.  They are so cool! Each kit contains 4 strip dies (center strips, flower centers, outer petals, and leaves), a quilling tool, floral wire for stems, and a ready made sample!  WOW! I used construction paper for them though cardstock works also.

I received the second RR Journal, this one belonging to Sandy A. with a theme of Grungy Numbers.  The base of the book is grunge board.  Here are the pages I made.  I am really enjoying this.
The background is done with a Shabby Chic
Technique created by Tim Holtz.  Background
is colored, numbers stamped in clear, then
the whole thing is painted over and the paint
is removed to exposed the embossed elements. 
The dressform and scroll at the bottom is from
paper I created using a new stamp of rows of
small numbers I embossed in clear on offwhite
paper then colored with inks. The top frame
is grunge board with verdigris embossing
Powder.  The numbers are also grunge board
embossed with DI Weathered Wood EP.
The background is paper done with that
number stamp and inked. Lady Time is a
stamp from Stampers Anonymous, the
numbers on the bottom is a Tim Holtz
stamp.  The numbers on the top are Grunge
board on grunge board background squares.
