AFTCM. The theme is A Garden Journey, so I created some house shapes and decorated them with garden images. It has been a fun project.
I started with some very thin corrugated cardboard which arrived last week wrapped around a new "toy"!! I designed my pages, cut them out and die cut the fence from scraps. I backed the pages with foreign language book pages. I stamped the fronts with a text stamp in dark brown and added some stippling as well. Finished all the edges with a large black permanent marker.
The fence is decorated with flower and vine punchies on both sides.
The front of the second house features a garden scene which includes a bird on a branch, a small butterfly, a grass die cut and five layered flowers. These are all punchies!! The quote continues in the same manner as the previous pages.
On the front of the last page I have created a garden of love that features a wide variety of heart flowers all growing next to each other. Added "Sow love!" in the same manner as the quote on the previous pages and some grass at the bottom.
I bound the pages with some cording which I knotted on the outside of the book on the left hand side.
I am very happy with how this little project turned out even with the mishap of the windows. I liked combining lots of different items and techniques.
My little book will start it's trip to my partner tomorrow and hopefully will arrive there some time next week!!
