HEART & FLOWER MINI BOOK

Hi there everyone XXXXX

I know the title says mini book but this one is actually 6x6 so a good size to work with.  I was sent this to play with by Di from TANDO CREATIVE, do pop over to have a browse of their lovely chipboard & to find their stockists.

The heart in the book comes out, which makes it more versatile & you can use the book with or without.  I sort of did both hahahaha!  I gesso'd the book first (after I had traced the flowers off) and then attacked it with my distress inks to match the K&Co papers I used inside.  As this is a book intended for my Mum on Mothers Day I printed her grandhildrens names onto copier paper & used that to back the heart aperture.


The heart itself is covered in K&Co paper.  I carefully traced the flowers onto card & cut out to stick back in place, adding another to the heart.  Then the heart was put on in  a jaunty/wonky angle hahahaha!!!


I really like how this one turned out and hopefully I will be able to gather enough current pics of my daughter & niece to go in it before the day!!!  Thank you for looking, HUGS XXX
