Out on a Jolly!

Dan 1 Yup - that is me ... around about now I will be on my way to London to do a spot of craft shopping before having lunch with friends.

It was Dan's birthday on Tuesday and we always meet up to celebrate. This is what I made Dan 2 him! I shall know in a little while whether or not he likes it ... fingers crossed!

The whole CD book was inspired by Dan's fantastic tutorial and I made this as a tribute to the inspiration I know he gives a lot of us!

Dan 3 I had to use the Bind-it-all, of course, because Dan taught me to use that as well!

The whole project was made using the masking technique which fits in nicely with the free theme on the Saturday Workout - because I am typing this on Saturday Dan 4 afternoon and I can't post it until Sunday [coz I don't want Dan to see it yet] I shall put my link on there when I get home!

Dan 5 I have left the masked areas mainly black and white and I have used glossy accents to add dimension.

I will see you all when I get home ... wish me luck!

Your artwork is fantastic! How did you cut through the CDs?

Linda Elbourne said...

To cut through the Cds I score them with a craft knife and then heat where I have scored. While they are still hot I cut the line with scissors - I hope that makes sense ... if not please email me X

Discovered Dan's blog via Hels a few days ago: Not surprised you had a great day!
