Anyway, this month at Mixed Media Monthly our theme is Butterflies and Blooms, and this is what I made:
Here is the front.
All I did was ink the edges and then played with some pretty papers and stamps. I'll show you a few details so you can see how I went about it.
I used some papers of the pretty Prima Butterfly collection by Jodi Lee. I cut the paper to size, added some stenciling, a butterfly die-cut and a Tim Holtz metal word band for the cover..
Here is the inside, using further papers, stamping in matching colours, subtle stencilling and some embellishments.
Panel 1 close up
Panel 2, - I tried to find stamps that would match the paper elements.
Panel 3 with subtle stamping to match the mood of the papers.
Panel 4, more of the same.
Below the panels on the back:
As you can hopefully see, I used some dyed seam binding ribbon underneath the papers so the folder can be tied shut.
All the elements on this one are cut from the paper line.
The little tags that go inside the pockets were all part of the paper collection too.
Well, that's pretty much it. A simple project that could make a great gift for a friend, with inspirational quotes written on the tags.
