My dad purchased some children cardboard books for me that are 2 3/4 inch x 2 3/4 inch. He is my go to person to get stuff for cheap for me from garage sales and stuff. His request this time was that I make a little album for him. So I decided to make one about Life (in French since my dad is French speaking only). I search on the net for some cool quotes for this.
And I got a big order of fab stamps from Unity today!!! I was super excited to start playing with them. Their challenge was my inspiration for colors
And here's my little book
This is the front and the back of the book
Here's the 1st page using the cute stamp from Counts as fruit. I thought that was a good illustration of simple pleasures!
And here's the 2nd page I used the Trust your soul stamp set (the heart one... but it's showing really pale). The quote for this page is from the "Le Petit Prince" that states that the only time you see clearly is with the heart and the rest is invisible... hence the darker writing.
Here's the next page where I used the Day and night stamp set, I paired it with some la la land craft gears dies
And here's the page that states that you need to stop dreaming about your life but live your dreams. The stamp is from Simple Daily Blessing
and here's the last page about life being simple but people being complex :) I used some pebbles texture paste with a stencil from Crafter's companion. I used a stamp again from Trust your soul.
The writing was done with some Faber Castel pitt pens and the inks are mostly archival inks. The paints were dollar store acrylics.
That's it! What do you think? Fun? It was dirty but a fun little project.
I'm entering this little book in the following challenges:
- The unity stampco-challenge - I was inspired by the color scheme and well that picture is all about life!
- Ema-ginationstation - Anything goes
- Altered eclectics - Something altered
- One crazy stamper com - Anything goes with stamps
- Rhedds creative spirit - mixed media anything goes
That's it for me. Hope your week has been good so far!!!
