Morning everyone. I can’t believe how quick this week has gone. It’s time again for the Out of A Hat Challenge. For more information about the challenge, Chrissie’s, Sandra’s, and Janet’s fabulous projects click on the link above.
For this weeks challenge we are asking you to make a domino book or a small book no bigger than 3″ x 3″ in a style and materials of your choosing. Lots of scope for this one. If, you’ve not got any dominos what about a small fabric book, mini photo album, or mini journal. The choice is yours.
This week I have made two projects again. I know, I really need to get out more! lol! The first is a little tiny concertina tag book.
I have used two small pieces of wood for the covers which have been painted in craft paint. I stamped the little tree on to some pretty script paper, distressed the edges and glued that to the wood. I then just ran some gold pen around the edge.
I made 7 little envelopes, glued them together and attached the covers.
Each envelope contains a little tag. I used scraps of wool and fabric on the tags.
To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heavan in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the Palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.
Just to show how tiny this is
For the second project I made this little domino book.
I covered two dominos with some hand made papers and gave them a coat of acrylic paint. I then added small pieces of a page from a book and gave those a thin coat of paint. I then stamped the little tree.
For the pages, I cut two strips of paper, scuffed the edges a little, scored them and then stamped the trees. I then sandwiched the lace between the two strips and machine stiched them together.
Stamps used: Small tree – Clarity Stamps. The small tags – Invoke Arts
We had a lot of fun with these projects especially as we did a swap with each other. I received this little beauty from my lovely friend Janet who has very kindly given me permission to put it on my blog.
Isn’t this brilliant. Thank you Janet. I will treasure it.
Thank you to everyone who entered the button challenge last week. Wow! Absolutely amazing entries. Don’t take my word for it. Pop over to the challenge blog and see for yourself.
I am off for a cuppa.
Best Wishes Florence x
Since posting this one of my blogging friends Marianne left a comment about a small book that she had made last year. You can see Marianne’s book HERE. I loved it so much I wanted to include a link to it in this post. Thank you Marianne.
