Playing with paper

I just love Graphics 45 paper and when I feel like crafting rather than creating art with a capital A, this definitely is the most inspiring paper line around I think.
Today I created a mini book out of empty toilet rolls. The idea came from my friend Roc. You can see her work here. I used 4 rolls for this mini. The paper I used is "Once upon a springtime", probably one of my favourites at the moment, I guess because I can't wait for spring to come.

This is the cover, and here are some of the pages:

And this is the back cover:

Hi Sweetness, I am so touched by your work and for some reason it brings out the "weepiness" in me. It just speaks to a place in my heart that I can't name. So soft and yet so strong. Hugs, Mollye

It is a beautiful, inspirational book that seems to say, spring is just round the corner.

Ahhh, the lowly toilet roll elevated to a gorgeous little booklet. I had seen Roc's and tucked the idea away in my mind. You have inspired me doubly! Beautiful work, Astrid .... but then all your work takes my breath away!

Terri Kahrs said...

What is the measure of a true artist? I will tell you. A true artist is a person who can find beauty in empty toilet roll holders! Your book is so beautiful. The papers are gorgeous. Perfection.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
