Alter it Monthly and Pay it forward

Remember a while back the Pay it Forward when Sam offered to make something for 5 people is they made the same offer to share the love.   Two people signed up with me.

This is the sketch book I made for Tracy.   The cover is Grunge paper coloured with Nick Bantock inks and stamped with SU images.   Some clock parts have been stuck over the images.   A Tando Large cog heart has been coloured with the same inks and run through the big shot with the cuttlebug cogs folder the raised images were highlighted with rub and buff type paint.   a couple more clock parts attached,    The book was bound in my Cinch and finally a little fly wheel hung from the binding on a chain.

Tracy has now received this so I am free to share it with you.    This cover was made with Alter it Monthly very much in mind, the theme there this month is Time and this is my entry to the challenge

This is the book for Brenda.    Grunge paper cover coloured with DI and sprayed with GM.     The stamps are Tanda and Elusive images embossed in black and coloured with Viva Gloss Paint.   Brenda used to holiday each year in Swange with her Mother.   Saddly her Mother passed last year, it was those special holidays and memories that this book was themed on.
