BEE Attitudes book
The cover features the Law of Attraction which highlights the fact that you are the co creator of your life. You use your thoughts, words and actions to create in the physical world. The earlier in life that we realize that we are in charge of our lives and responsible for our choices and their consequences the sooner that we can consciously choose the thoughts, words and actions that will bring us what we seek in life.
bees came in!! Each page features flowers of some kind, a bee and one word.
I created each page, one at a time. I started by embossing the quarter sheet, adding the flowers and embellishments and sewing on the word. Once all my pages were finished, I placed a pair of them
For my first page, I embossed a quarter sheet of green cardstock with distressed lines, added some layered punchie flowers and finished them off with hand cut stems and leaves. I sewed on my word.
On this page, I used a polka dot embossing folder (SU), added flowers created using red five petal punchies (SU) layered with yellow flowers with red circle punchie centers. I added some green swirls cut from a small die made by Sizzix.
I used my Zutter Binding machine to punch the holes in all the page and used a 3/4" black wire binding to bind my pages together. To add a bit of texture I tied some fibers to the wire binding.
I am hoping she will make the book her own by embellishing the pages, adding fibers and maybe some charms to the binding and making use of the tags.
I am very happy with how this little book has turned out and how quickly it came together. I do admit I have been percolating this idea for some time and it certainly contributed to how quickly it came together.
We are so happy to be close enough to participate in this event and be there to celebrate with her family!!
