Scrap Metal Book Box with Andy Skinner

Scrap Metal Book Box - Andy Skinner Workshop - by Nikki Acton

A couple of weeks ago I attended an Andy Skinner workshop - Scrap Metal Book Box. Great day with Andy as usual - packed with paint techniques and a little humour!

For Andy Skinner followers you can probably spot many of his techniques on here, many he has shown on Hochanda - so while I would love to share the details, they are not mine to share!!! Although there is a bit of Nikki thrown in too!

So lots of pics of the finished project....

Gelli Stamping with Distress Inks and Oxides

Stamping on Gelli Plate / Gel Press - by Nikki Acton
Stamping on Gelli Plate / Gel Press - by Nikki Acton
Hello - today we start a new challenge on the Craft Stamper blog - as usual it is anything goes with stamping.

For my inspiration piece I decided to use my distress oxides (and inks) on a gel plate. I used a small rectangular gelli and brayered one colour of ink on the surface before stamping onto it. I then stamped the gelli onto card. I repeated with different colours and stamps covering the surface and sometime overlapping colours.

The cards were made from the gelli printed masterboards - adding layers to create extra interest!

Tando Creative Mini Books


Tando Creative Mini Books by Nikki Acton
I recently purchased a pack of Tando Mini Books to assemble. These are just 6cm square and are super cute!!! The pack contains the covers and the spines - already cut and ready to assemble and decorate. I also played around with different ways to add the signatures.
The concertina works really well and allows all the pages to open flat.

I think this is my favourite - and is on it's way to a friend who is starting a new adventure!
