Filling the World with Light.

Time for another Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge, #23.  This week was the wonderful & hilarious movie “Waking Ned Devine“.  DH & I saw it over 10 years ago in the theatres & just loved it.  Quirky humour, just the way we like it.  

Sometimes when you really love a movie, I find these challenges even more difficult.  I decided to make a note book for one of the women in my Bible Study, because the movie seemed to rely on the “friends” factor quite a bit.  No, my friend in the study doesn’t buy lotto ticket, lie to the authorities, nor does she pretend to take on the identity of a dead person for personal gain.   Oh my the more I think of it, maybe I should give it to somebody else … LOL.  Anyways, my ‘Green Element’ for the challenge was in the Rhonna Farrer Le Fleur Autumn Leaves PP.   

I used some Tim Holtz Crackle Paint …. oooo is that stuff cool.  You just paint it on, kinda’ thick, & then just wait about an hour for it to dry.  It almost looks like leather when it’s dried.  I also used some Grunge Board from Tim Holtz.  Also, very cool.  It’s very strong & maliable, so I used it for the hinge (attached by a velcro sticker at the front).  

At the back, it’s attached by Antique copper Brads.  I wish I had had different bind-it-all rings, cause it would have looked better in a different colour, but silver is all I had.  

Used:  Celtic Knots SU Retired Set, ‘Friends’ stamp set from Remarkable, I believe?, Tim Holtz Grunge Board Plain, Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Crackle Distressing Paint, Bind-It-All Zutter 6×6″ Chipboard Covers, Bind-It-All Machine & Rings, Antique Copper Brads, Velcro Dots, Tombo Glue, Blue Awning Adhesive Chipboard from K & Company,  Rhonna Farrer Le Fleur Autumn Leaves PP, Distressing/cutting Tool (SU), Tim Holtz Weathered Wood Distressing Ink, Distressing Applicator Tool, Stazon Timber Brown Ink, Printer Paper cut to 5 1/4″ square, & Dimensionals.

Pin It!
