Garden book project

I made this book a little while ago as a present using my new to me then Bind it All. I used a stamp which I coloured with my small limited set of Whisper pens supplemented by some chalking. I decoupaged parts on the stamp - some with 2 layers, some with 3. I added the title panel & blooms.


I took it into Sticky Fixers our craft club to finish off the stamping inside - Months & seasons - on one of our free weeks. We try to do a lesson on one week & a free week the next so that we can finish things off or do our own thing - it's nice to see what the members have created :-)
The members liked the idea & asked if I could please to do a lesson to make one. So when Maddy was away, they didn't let me forget & as requested, I took the lesson......................

Love this book Rach, that door and the garden scene looks real enough to step right through it! :)

Hope you're resting up ok.

Thanks Calvin - it gave the craft club members the basics in making before they went on to do the technique scrapbook with Maddy :-)
