Work in Progress - mini book
I'm new to mini books but I'm having a lot of fun. I'm following Felicia's Tutorial and all the pages and covers are ready and decorated although I'm still moving things around on the cover - stuff isn't stuck down yet and no doubt I will embellish some more. Because of the green beads in the image I added one of my own green beads to a string of chain and charms cut off a cheap Penneys necklace. The paper clips were a pound shop buy, and some of the ribbons have been coloured with Distress Stains.
I really don't want to do scrapbooking -although it's fun to admire other people's layouts, the 12 x 12 thing is too much for me and huge to store. This mini book thing is much more manageable. I could get hooked! I chose Tim Holtz Crowded Attic 12 x 12s after seeing someone else using them. I will fill the book with old photos from my parents' stash, the papers are perfect for this.
After seeing the Bind it All in action I really don't want to bind this book with ribbon. Guess what's on my wishlist .....
My daughter's debs is this summer and I'm already planning bright and pretty papers for a mini book to hold photos from that occasion. Then there's my friend's wedding next month. Am I getting close to justifying the cost of a Bind it All LOL?
Thanks for visiting!
