Birthday Book

Good afternoon lovely peeps. Hope you are all well.

I've been having a play with my new toy!

After being inspired by my fellow LOTV teamie Donna's address book, I had a go at a birthday book.

I covered the 6x6 greyboard that came with my my Cinch with paper from the Beach Bliss paper pad by Lili of the Valley. I then spelled out 'Birthdays' with the Hobby Art Alphabet TYPED set.

I have been itching to use my new Bird Set stamps from Hobby Art, so I stamped the Bird on Branch with black Archival ink onto watercolour card and coloured it in with Whispers pens and a damp paintbrush.

I doodled lines around the edges with a black fineline pen and then glued it at a squiffy angle onto the front cover. I've added a skeleton leaf, flowers and buttons from my stash.

The inside pages are just squares of white card with the months spelled out using the same alphabet stamps again (rather stupidly I did this after I'd bound the book, so held my breath the entire time).

It's finished off with some co-ordinating organza ribbon tied to the spines.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:-

Creative Inspirations - Anything Goes + Option of a Sketch!
Graph'It colouring challenge  - Anything Square

That's all for now folks, I'll be back at the weekend.
