Finally finished....


After working for weeks on a Botanical book for a commission, I finally managed to complete it this weekend! Here are just a few photos, as I have shown most of the tags in previous posts anyway, and it's jolly hard to photograph, so my apologies for the rather poor photographs.
All of the tags are two sided and most of them have an inspirational quote on one of the sides too.
Front of the book

The spine
 And here are some of the inside pages with a few tags in place





I had great fun making it but now I am glad it is finally done....

Drooling here, all over my keyboard... you are certainly an inspiration Astrid, you have inspired me to pull one of my projects out and get 'on with it'. This particular project has been sitting about unfinished for a year! I love how you create, with what you create and how you pull it all together... just beautiful!

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!
