Tiddly Inks challenge 66- Acrylic!

Image-Little Miss Sunshine from Tiddly inks.
 Morning peeps!!!

Its Tiddly tuesday again and that means time for a new challenge over on the Tiddly Inks challenge blog.
The art journal challenge was so much fun and I loved looking at everyone's entries, wow!! they were awesome.
And so onto this week, us Tiddly inking gals want to see.....


 this week on your projects. This means use acrylic anywhere on your creation (any acrylic will work---think acrylic albums, flowers, paint and even shrinky dinks count!!)
For mine I decided to make a little mini journal. I decided to use acrylic and some shrinky dink plastic too!! the acrylic was used for covers on the journal. here's a piccy of it laying down so you can see the acrylic a bit better!!
I embossed the acrylic with divine swirls and gave it a good rub with some alcohol inks to turn it a kind of sepia brown colour. I added a few pearls in the corner and stamped a sentiment that I tore out of its paper and then inked the edges of.
And here's a piccy of my Little Miss Sunshine all uncovered and cute!!! I coloured her up all autumnal as I am in season change mode now!!! :)

I ruffled up a bit of  lace too, I love it!!!
The pages inside the book are just plain old record cards, cut up and pretty-fied by me!!! he he he!! I stamped my magnolia swirl on and then distressed all the edges in my distrez- it- all ( oh how I love that machine!!!)

A good old bite and bind from my bind it all and the mini journal was ready!! yey!! The leaves are an inkadinkado stamp my BF got me last year, its so lovely and the leaves look beautiful in teeny shrinky dink size!! I attached them with little rings to the binding and then I had oodles of fun tying on fibres and ribbons through the binding.

So what will you make using your Tiddly Inks????? before you make a start pop over to the challenge blog and see what the other Tiddly Inkers have made (...WARNING>>>>they are all totally gorgeous and will make you need them!!!!!)
