Circle Book..Theme "Wings"
This Iittle book was a challenge for my swap group "Art n Soul" on Flickr.
The theme is "WINGS"I have collaged with Angels and butterflies.The template and instructions were supplied by group member Viv..here.
All the backing papers are handmade but i made one mistake (not reading the instructions properly) I assembled it all then thought Ooo no ! i cant do any stamping,so my book is just collaged and embellished lol
I wanted to use my Cuttlebug machine as its been idle for ages due to all this sewing i have been doing :-] I decided to make the covers metal (using a beercan) so cut the tin to size then run through an embossing folder,same for the butterfly which i coloured with alcohol inks.Eyelets through both cover's to tie with ribbon.The underneath is painted with bronze metalic paint.
This certainly got me back into paper crafting I really enjoyed the challenge,I think its the most complecated project i have worked on so far ! I did think it would take me days to complete with waiting for drying times,not so,just one day !
suprised myself lol AND i had distractions as my son came to put Freeview on my bedroom TV (early Christmas present )he did joke and say right now i know it works, I will take the box home and wrap it for Christmas day ........after climbing in and out the loft lol.
