Techniques Book - Today's challenge at One Stop Craft Challenge is flowers. We are sponsored by Bearly Mine.
I crop with a group of friends every Wednesday and we made these technique books, to hold some samples of some techniques that we were interested in.
Milly made the book covers and then we each decorated our own books.
I used some precolored digi stamps by Bearly Mine for my book All I did was print them out, cut them, shape them and stack them using a flocked brad to hold them together. I can get this Bearly Mine freebie here.
When I look at this photo, I see a busy mess; but in real life, it is more defined.
Besides the flowers, I used some colored wire that I coiled. Some black leaves that were cut with a SB and then shaped. I also added a bit of black tulle, a black bow and a brown stick pin. I really enjoy making stick pins and love using them.
Milly printed out the words and even inked them for us. Isn't she the best friend ever?
I added a Recollections gemstone swirl.
I added a bunch of ribbons and yarn to the rings.
This is the inside of the books. You can pull the pages out of the pockets. Milly has some techniques in her technique book, but I had missed going the previous week, when everyone else put their books together.
