Good morning to you...
We have a challenge running over on our
where our theme is...
I made this folded book for my Dad...
he loves all things Christmas and saw a book I folder a while ago and liked it.... so I made and gave him this.
I kept the colours very vintage.... just used one colour of distress ink.
I stamped the leaves with distress ink and dragged the colour through with a damp paint brush...then fussy cut them.... lots of them!
I stamped the little wrens and sentiment and did the same to colour them...just a damp brush to drag out the ink....more fussy cutting.
Iinked the folded page edges and the hessian i tied the book with.
I made the flowers from spare pages.... coloured again with the same distress ink.
Turned down some of the spare pages,,,more ink!
Put all my leaves, flowers and birds on with hot glue.
The sentiment is very fitting for my Dad....he seemed to like the book....YAY!
