Just when you thought it was over and gone for the year, here I am posting a spread on Valentine's Day. It's my first spread in another player's book for the Holidays Altered Book round robin that I wrote about yesterday.
Above is the left side of my spread in Darya's book. She had started a book with a lighthearted style, and I tried to continue in that style, using coordinating scrapbook papers, diecuts and tiny buttons. The right side is shown below.
I love that image of the kissing couple, and I've been wanting to use it. On the right side, I made tiny envelopes (1.5" x 1" if they were closed) out of coordinating paper, sanded them, and placed tags inside. The tags say love, or more specifically "the love" in French, German and Italian.
Now that this project is complete, I have two more thankfully small projects to do, and then I have to get busy cleaning my studio. It's a crapalanche of the most extreme kind. Jasper is having a great time in here because there are so many papers, trinkets, paintbrushes, etc. to chew on. I have to pick up and make this place puppy-proof or I'm going to go insane. I can't wait to see what I find under the piles of stuff — maybe that rounded corner punch I was just needing but couldn't locate.
