Rhona the Spaniel Mini Album

Hi everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful New Year … I thought I share what I have been working on for the last couple of days… it’s still work in progress

I am making a 6″ x 4.5″ Mini Album that will feature wee Rhona our Sprocker Spaniel, I spent time up in my shed cutting all the pages and inking, matting and layering them, ย got the front and back covers done and the binding done.

I love the bunny rabbit paper i used on the cover pages, it is from the First Edition Wild at Heart 6×6 stack, the chipboard letters were from Stampers grove and because they had a glossy finish I used alcohol inks to colour them.

This week I will fill the pages with polaroid pictures of Rhona printed out from my Phone on the Instax Printer.

Really looking forward to finishing this wee book… as always thank for popping round and I shall see you soon

50th Guest Book

Hi everyone!

A happy soggy wet Sunday to you all ๐Ÿ™‚

The rain here has not stopped all day, or yesterday for that matter, and last night I had problems with the electrics in my wee shed.. moisture in a socket i think, ย so glad hubby is an electrician, so fired him up there today to fix it lol ๐Ÿ™‚ and all is well again, thankfully!

I have a book to share with you today, I was working on this last week and it is finished now, well the ice resin has cured and dried ๐Ÿ™‚

50

It’s a guest book for my friend who is 50 next month, she is having a party, and I thought it would be nice to make a week book for her to pass around at her party so everyone can sign and leave a nice wee message for her

I did a double layer with the ice resin so that it gave the effect of floating stars.. hopefully the next picture shows this off a wee bitty.

50 d

I used the bind it all for the book’s binding, using black 3/4″ O Wires.

50 c

I also added some nice sparkly sequins to the inside of the book along with a few photo’s and sealed it all in with my fuse tool.

I hope you enjoyed the project this week.. I will be back next week with a regular stream, either Ustream or Youtube, but will notify via social media to let you all know

As always, thanks for popping round,
