MADJAK design team work

well I have been unexpectedly busy and not at home so not blogged but Luckily I had made some things last week. So in one of my rare days at home I am grabbing the chance to blog everything I have made as I wont be home again for at least a week.. No computer or craft time... (I am going cold turkey already lol ).
here are a couple of things I made with My Madjak stamps and embossing powders.
The doors on the shrine were stamped and embossed with the divine gold madjak embossing powder. The little flakes in the gold give it a nice "ancient" and rich look.
I have used the flutter stamp sheet on the card and one of the stamps from the familiar set on the shrine.

The end of nigel (and some additions)

Another instalment of Nigel

Another step done in the Fortunes of Nigel. After getting news of an wise old Pharaoh seeking a servant and confidant to employ with very good working conditions Nigel has set out for Egypt.

I have to point out that the Pharaoh is getting old and I am not sure Nigel realises how far the responsibilities of a servant go when it comes to dead Pharaohs and pyramid burials!!

Part 3 "Nigel goes East"

Further adventures for Nigel. I have taken him to the far east to recover from the trauma of scary clowns and fearsome lions.

stage 2 altered book

If you click on the images in this and the last post, you can read Nigels little story as he goes along!
I have continued the adventures of little Nigel today by sending him off to the circus. It didn't go well for him as I think he had been viewing the circus through rose tinted glasses. The reality was not as nice so he has decided to move on. We will discover where in the next step of the book. lol

Altered book!

I have started a project for my brother in laws birthday. I found an old copy of Sir Walter Scott's "Fortunes of Nigel" and the title made me imagine a little boy called Nigel going off out into the world to explore and have adventures.
This is what I am basing my altered book on.. here is what I have come up with so far!
