Obsession (and I do not mean Calvin Klein)


I am truly obsessed with Paper-blocking to the point of it is my first thought when starting a project............need therapy for sure.

Any-ways this is the first of my Valentine inspired projects, I have several in mind and in fact have another two on the go.  Now anyone who knows me is fully aware I am not the romantic lovely dovely type person but Valentines is hitting my radar this year.  Trying to convince my other half that craft goodies are okay for Valentine present, wish me luck on that one.

So without further ado here we go..............

Flowers sprayed in a mix of worn Lipstick re-inker and Perfect Pearl mist 

I am going to enter this one into a couple of challenges CC101 & Sunday Stamper.

My other project that I was about was 60 Christening Invitations for a couple of friends who are having a family Christening for their three little bundles of joy.  I do not normally do commissions as the stress levels I put myself under are just not worth it, but this was a special case..............  Even though the invitation needed to be "normal"  still managed to get a bit of Ranger/Tim's  products in there - Distress Black ink and Silver paint, Embossing folder -------------where there is a will there is a way.

Thank you for stopping by to visit Tuck Towers, I really do appreciate your support.

  6. Hi Sue I've never heard of paper blocking before... duh !! But your Valentines pieces look I'd like to give it a you mind me asking what's the best way to start?...would you use up scraps of card and cover them with papers? TFS Chris XX

    1. Chris Thank you for you lovely comments. The only way IMO to do paper blocking is to not over think it. Cut your paper/card in different sizes and just stick them down.
