Inventors/Inventions at Try it on Tuesdays

Hi Folks

Its time for another challenge at TioT, and this time we have chosen Inventors/Inventions, and as we love to see creativity, it could even be your own invention!
For my piece I decided to make a wall hanging, I am busy 'updating' one of DDs  redundant pin boards and this will  'feature',  not sure exactly how I will adhere it, so I have included two eyelet holes at the top for chain/wire or clips.

The quotes and 'inventors' are Tim Holtz and the gent displaying the 'prototype' is from a Chocolate Baroque stamp plate. The embossing folders are TH and Spellbinders.

I do hope you will join us this fortnight, and should you need any inspiration, my fabulous teamies have certainly excelled themselves this week, so please pop over here and take a look.  Don't forget, our April sponsor is   Genuinely Jane Studios
