...if money, time, pain, work etc etc were no object....
that was the question asked by Anna, the owner of the latest journal I've come to tackle in the Tattoo CJ.
I wasn't sure what to do at first as I already have my dream tattoo, my beautiful orcas. But then I thought of all the cool places I'd like to have tattoos if it wasn't for my job.... and this is what I came up with.
Anna's album is one of those see through acrylic jobbies. Which was SO much fun to work on! I enjoyed the challenge of knowing that the work on each side would show through to the other side etc etc.
It was a bugger to photograph though, hence me taking it out into the garden and holding it up to the sky, please excuse my two week old nail varnish that really needs to come off!
Nothing fancy on here technically speaking. Hand was just cut out from patterned paper that I had laid my own hand on and drawn around. Letters are Heidi Swapp I think from an old Costco kit, sprayed with irridescent gold glimmer mist and coated with stickles. Neither of which really show up on the photo, the red stickles on the tiny heart don't either, but they are there, honest.
The swallow and the "take a walk..." are rub ons.
The file folder on the back opens to reveal the journalling:
Ummm, what else? The flourishes around the outside are Autumn Leaves stamps stamped with royal purple Stazon.
and all the rest of the stamping on the back page is snow cap Ranger pigment ink
