As it is payday I thought I'd put a blog post up today. Before I go onto the spends, I will show you what I've done so far. First of all, here is where I am on the sewing room stitch.
The blanket is taking ages! I reckon this should take me about another month.
Now onto the reason for the title. My mum went on holiday last month, and she was browsing in a car boot sale (a tradition for our family) when she found a game with plastic number tiles (ok technically not scrabble but the tiles are the same size, so if you have some spare scrabble tiles you can do this)
The first thing you do is dig out some papers. Be very careful, as you have to pick small pieces, or at least the right part of larger pieces. For example, my Steampunk Spells papers don't really work for this as it is a 12" pad. When you have chosen your papers, cut them roughly to size, then glue them onto the tile. I used multi matte medium to cover them, and put some more multi matte medium on them to seal
Once dry (wait till they are completely dry) then you can add some extra stuff. I have a bunch of remnant rub ons, and they were perfect for this kind of thing. I then added some stickles to each one.
You'll notice there are a couple of dominoes here as well. There was some paper I liked too big for scrabble! Once this part is done coat each piece in Glossy Accents. Leave to dry at least overnight, then glue bails onto the back.
These two (the hand and the eye) are my favourite.
My least favourite, purely because of the coloured S - these particular rub ons are not as good as the Tim Holtz ones.
You may not be able to see the rubs here but it is white script rubbed onto a black background.
The skull is also cool!
So there you have it, ten scrabble tiles and two dominoes, plus some craft stash and I have a bunch of different pendants!
I managed to put £505.26 in my account last month, so that makes it up to a grand total of 76.7%!!!! Well on my way to hitting my target.
