For a long time I have wanted to make this, since I first saw it in February. I even went to the tip shop and found the thickest book I could find so I could play.
Looks boring doesn’t it!! But it’s red, it’s thick and it has some cool graphics inside, ideal! And then it sat under my scrap table not doing much at all…
For a long time too I have been wanting to ‘dabble’ in stamping, collage… more mixed media and then yesterday I read Pam’s blog and saw her creation for a group called CrowAbout. It looked like fun and it looked just like what I had been waiting for, so I asked to play along and got straight into the fun!!
This saying was something we were talking over when Dave’s Mum was here. As soon as I saw the collage pictures I knew what I wanted to make, a dancing dressed up dog :)
Love this fella :)
Now the way Christina made her book was straight forward, front to back, prepare everything first… Well not me lol I just pulled out random pages and then started somewhere near the end of the book. My plan is to make it as I go and in absolutely no order at all! I will glue the pages as I go and quite possibly do the cover near the end, when the book is finished the very thought of which excites me :)
So my ‘new project’ is going to be about quotes/sayings that are a little outside the norm but are everyday ‘lingo’ and I am going to have fun with it as I will the book with collage :) Looking forward to the next page :)
