This month was to make a ruler book.... and she set up a prize for someone to win all the stash to make one of these gorgeous books (inspired by the lovely Tim Holtz, of course!) ......AND I WON!!
I'm so pleased cos I've been looking for wooden rulers everywhere without success so I could try one of these and now I've won the makings!
Please go and have a look at Ange's blog, her work is fab, she is full of inspirational ideas and has lots of tutorials for you to learn from.
Thanks Ange, promise I will try to do a real good ruler book for you!

After missing the Gothic Arches challenge for the last couple of weeks, I was pleased that I managed to find time to do it this week particularly as the colour combination of brown and pink is so pretty!
The background paper and image is courtesy of the Collage Group on Flickr. I added some pink tones to the backing paper and edges of the arch. I used Pink Pearls Liquid to highlight the child's hair ribbon. I think this pic is beautiful as so many of these vintage images are - I always wonder what these children looked like when they became adults!
The jigsaw piece was a real bright fuschia colour and far too bright so I used some white versamark ink over it to tone it down a bit. The fabric roses were in my 'lace box' - I think they were cut off a child's dress by my Gran a long time ago!
I now have quite a collection of arches and really do need to make a book to house them all in.
Have finally finished the pages for the Bird Journal jam over at our New Inspirations Group. These are Sherry's. Sherry's theme was 'lavender and lace' and we were told 'interpret how you wish'! I had some dried lavender so put some in a felt pouch which I attached to the bird on the left with the lace and ribbons. I found this quote of a lavender seller in Victorian London which I liked!
