This book was probably more fun than I've had in a long time. I just laid it out and went with it!
Sometimes that produces our best work, in any field. Don't think, just do!
Anyway, I love it. It has 2 of my favorite color combinations with lots of black to make the colors pop!
I tried adding lots of ribbons, and charms, but in the end, I went with a simple turquoise piece of seam binding and a locket key with a chain tassel on a swivel clasp.
This is the front inside cover with some stamps from the talented Lynne Perrella and Anna Dabrowska.
Here is a detail of the front. Lots of paint, glue, sprays, and ephemera.
The inside back cover has the Sunrise Sunset papers that have GORGEOUS colors!
UPDATE: I used the Zutter Bind-It-All and Owires to put this book together. The front and back come in a flat pack so they're easy to paint and decorate.
Then you punch the holes for the wires and add your pages all on the little machine. I've had mine for a long time and forget to use it. I works great when you want to get color right up to the edges and still have a wire binding.
Hope you enjoy. Check out the links for products ....and Create ART!
