Tim Holtz' blog as well as other examples both on blogs and at my stampers' club meeting. (Some of the members got to make the Creative Blocks canvas on Tim's fall cruise.) I must admit after seeing these Creative Blocks in person, I was hooked to try one. LOL! What was I thinking? Photos of individual elements are below.
Mine is not a la King Tim's style, but rather my own scrappy style using the Graphic 45 All That Jazz papers from the Curtain Call Collection. Most of my materials are from the flying unicorn on-line store.
Here is a photo of the prize from the flying unicorn for the randomly chosen winner of the Bella Unique challenge.
Warning: this is a rather long blog post with lots of photos. Grab a cup of coffee and settle in if you want to read through it all! You may also enjoy the song I'm playing while this particular blog post is up (the music changes with my posts.) I actually found a Louis Armstrong jazz number from 1928--The West End Blues.
I took a 45 rpm record out of my collection and carefully opened the dust jacket to make a template for my jazz record cover. The actual record is inside the jacket. ( I got this idea from a party kit post I saw that included making smaller versions of the jackets for CDs. I'm sorry I can't remember where I saw this cute idea. I thought I bookmarked it but can't seem to locate it. So if it was on your blog, please let me know so I can insert the proper credit here.)
Whew! Thanks for stickin' with me! What will I do with this? I plan to hang it on the wall in my craft room.
