A NEW PROJECT ...

I do love making mini-books so I signed up to take part in Shimelle's new class "Learn Something New Every Day" which runs throughout September. It starts today so I've spent the past few days working on this set of covers for the project. I've used materials from K & Co's Blue Awning range (just love blue and green), with Basic Grey lettering and a few metal bits and pieces.

I was particularly pleased with the oval embellishment, where the central space for a stone was empty. I painted it blue inside then added layers of Glossy Accents, and now it looks like a proper stone!

I'm looking forward to recording lots of learning with this, and hopefully will be sharing some of the pages I make. Another heirloom for my daughters to inherit.....
