Saturday Savers - Say it big - Gio

Hi,
We have a lovely mini album by Gio to finish this Say it Big week.
Gio chose the Woodware huge "Friend" stamp, and upcycled some beer mats to turn them into the mini album.

We hope you enjoyed this week and look forward to reading your comments.




I upcycled some beer mats. I loved their unusual shape and these ended up in a mini album.


I cover the back of every beer mat with Pebeo Gesso. When dry, I stamped every single letter from the Woodware clear stamp: Huge friend with Versamark ink pad, and embossed then with black embossing powder.
I made it on every beer mat, until I formed the word Friend. 
I coloured the beer mat with several Distress inkS, adding water with a paintbrush. I stamped randomly several sentences from the same stamp. I cut the Graphic45 papers to size and I glued them to the front side of the beer mat. I added the pictures to the front side. I stamped the title using Archival ink and the Stampendous Small Typewriter Alphabet stamp.
I made a hole on every page and assembled the beer mats with a clock part.

















Gio used:
Ranger Archival Ink pad: Jet Black 
Treasure Gold: Brass 
Pebeo Studio acrylic auxiliaries: Gesso 250 ml 
Pebeo Studio acrylic auxiliaries: Gel Medium 250 ml 
Woodware clear stamp: Huge friend
