starting new stuff is always fun, isn't it? especially if the preparations include one of my very favorite things: making a little book! seeing as i had so much fun making ATC's last summer... (i'd really like to make--and swap--more of those) ...i thought it'd be nice to practice using that size for this project. i've converted a standard deck of playing cards by punching holes, stringing them onto a bookring, and making a front and back cover. i've given some of the cards a "basecoat" of paint or ink or paper as a headstart do making one per week for the year. wanna see my book so far?
here's the front cover:
here's the back cover:
and here's the whole thing, ready for action:
(supplies for covers: bengali newspaper; anahata katkin clipart lotuses; fancy pants acryllic letters; basic grey rub-ons; making memories glitter alphas; colorbox inks; zig pen)
i've already started making my "catch up" cards from january and february, so this week i will be showing those as i get them photo-ed and uploaded.
HOORAY for starting new projects!!!
