Smudgefest day 3 - Just Words

Well I'm back from my hols. A 9 hour car journey back, we made good time. Had a fantastic time staying with a dear friend. This did however cut heavily into the day to do my project for day 3 of the Smudgefest over at Smudgy Antics.
USE ONLY WORDS TODAY(no images, just words). This did get edited after I'd started off on my journey - and by then I'd already formulated a plan.
EDIT - So...I didn't realize how hard this one could be for everyone so here is an idea that might can use background/texture stamps to help create your project....
 9 hours - enough time to prepare the base of the project - and could be done on the journey - YES!!!

This is it - finished.
An altered book using the method as first seen created by a friend on the Smeared & Smudged forum - Shell. Heartfelt thanks Shell for the inspiration.
Some red glitter cs round the sides and covered by black tulle, each piece tied in a bow with a large red, home-made flower attached.

A large concertina flower on top, covering most of the home-made green paper in stash.
The words Earth, Air, Fire and Water from the Goddess set - Smeared Ink - were stamped and foiled onto flower shaped die cut red card.
Time's up - got to get this linked.
See you soon for day 4 which hopefully won't be as rushed
