Making Progress



I am making some progress on my altered board book, although it is still a work in progress. It has come a long way since this post. I am using papers from Basic Grey's Stella Ruby collection as well as catalog pages (my favorite) and the paper napkins that I wrote about here. The rectangular embellishment on the cover is made using alcohol inks on a game piece and attaching a charm to the top. I intend to hang something from the charm eventually. I applied the papers using Golden's soft gel medium. I am finding that I prefer it to the regular gel medium (as it is a thinner consistency) or Mod Podge (which seems to make the papers wrinkle more). As I said, it still needs work, but thought you'd enjoy seeing it evolve. Hope you all are having a happy Monday!

Oh, and what progress your making! Love seeing your books...everytime think back to finding your blog during one of the board books I made. It looks like your creations come so easy! (sign of a true artist)

Hi Jeanne,
I missed your tea party but things were just as nice today when I stopped in. All the teapots still right there and beautiful. You are making great progress on your board book. I like what you are doing. I still haven't finished my "reflection" page on the cabinet of curiosity book. I was using one of these little tiny board books for that. I know what I'm going to do. Just have found time. Also, I just got my MOO cards today. Love them.
