Smeared Ink Design Team Monthly Blog Hop

Lots of madness, craziness, and insanity going on in the month of March and what better way to celebrate than Smeared Ink style!

March Madness is the theme for this month's Design Team project.  Two of my fellow teamies were able to join me in the Blog Hop this month.   Please leave some love for each and let them know what you think of their madness!


SHONI - you are here @ Crafty Inknik

I have made a mini quote album from the lid of a Prego jar.  I have used a Smeared and Smudged Forum March Junk Funk Challenge to be part of this project as well.  I have found some great quotes on madness and insanity that I hand wrote and placed on the punched pages.  I hope to keep adding quotes I find.

Deets of Madness

My lid came from a Prego jar which I used Black Gesso around the edges.

Top image is from a Smeared Ink digital paper set called Poe Boy.  Printed out, punched and adhered to top of lid.  Crystal Effects over entire top image.

I used a 2 1/2" circle punch for each of the pages.  Pages are double sided, random designer paper and card stock.  
Each side is stamped with a Past Rubber Club Offering, Morte (June 2013 / Rick St. Dennis).

White Baker's Twine to hold it all together along with Sticky Strip.

Pages fold up and fit perfect inside the lid.

  5. I think my favorite part about this piece is that you are adding quotes to it. You always here things that you like but then they are gone. I love the idea of this to keep them all in one nice neat little circular package. Will have to do.
    I think the mix of papers is so cool. I think you came up with a very innovative application of this months junk a funk theme.
