Just another book I made for a little boy that was baptized today. It was made as a gift, in order to document his first year ( photos, stories and comments, wishes and blessings etc)
The book is hard-covered. I used Winsor & Newton Smooth Cartridge paper (not so good for watercoloring of course but I like its feeling) and sprayed canvas, stitched together. The designer paper is from a candy I have won and the chipboard letters are from Sfragidomania .
The stamps are the new Bazoo and Woodland creatures and I used my Derwent Inktense pencils for the coloring - my favorite coloring medium ever.
Of course stickles and glossy accents are a must in these projects, so I used them liberally.
As a birthday gift my DH and DD bought from IKEA a set of shallow drawers perfect for a crafter with LOTS of stuff.
Yesterday I finished with one of them, and managed to have many different coloring mediums in a place where I can see them all! Amazing!
It is so convenient and easy-to-find, that I plan to use an other drawer for my sprays and one for my acrylics. I have already placed my wooden stamps in one and my punches in another - all of them were stored in boxes and I admit that there were times that I was bored to bring them out and I was forgetting about of them!
