Good Morning Ladies,
Thursday is here already. Time is flying once again. There are not enough hours in a day to create all I want to create. But I am thankful for the time I have.
I have created a second altered project for Joan's Touch Challenge #11 Graphics 45 You can see and enter the challenge here.... http://joanstouch.blogspot.com/2014/04/challenge-11.html
This is the first project I started to for this challenge. It took a little longer to create than the project from yesterday. So it got posted second as it was not finished to post yesterday.
The challenge requirements for this week are as follows:
Make an altered project.
Use something that can be purchased at http://www.atjoansgardens.com/
So here we go....
http://www.atjoansgardens.com/ I used the small calling cards and mini stamps from the pad throughout the mini book. So those two items were placed on the book first. I then added the flowers. The flowers consist of two little satin roses, a little larger sheer ivory rose, rolled roses created using a Sizzix die, and a layered flower created using the Black Eyed Susan Cheery Lynn die. The Black Eyed Susan die was purchased at Joan's Gardens. I love that die as it makes more than just a Black Eyed Susan. Buttons came next...yes buttons glorious buttons. I love buttons and think they give a vintage look. Pearl sprigs were added under the flowers. A single feather was the last addition to the book cover. Ribbon and fiber was added to the rings that bind this book together. Scroll down to see the rest of the book. There are spaces for photos. The inside pages were stark white and that would not do with the Graphics 45 paper. So all pages had Tim Holtz distressed stain in the color of Vintage Photo rubbed over them for a match to the vintage look of Graphics 45.
This mini book could be filled with photos of you little girls tea party with photos printed in sepia or it would be a wonderful Mother's day gift with vintage photos added.
This was so fun and easy to make. Graphics 45 and Terri are the key to this mini book.
Thanks Joan this was a wonderful challenge!
