I took a class with Karen Valentine back in May. At the time I really didn't know what to do with my book. The colors and theme weren't really me but the base and the kit Karen provided had all sorts of possibilities!!
I finally picked it up again this week after a bit of a crafting haitus. We all have those right??:)
I picked up this Book a few weeks ago and looking through it started an idea and with that idea came this Little Book:)
Look at all those fantastic layers!!!
Here we go..........
That's all the pages. Here are a few details:)
I love the way it finally turned out. I start a project and always think well maybe this wasn't such a good idea. But as I add more it really starts to come together. I remember things I bought long ago that will be perfect and then tear thru all my craft room looking for them. There is a good time to be organized and that would be it:) There's lots of vintage in this book. Lace and most of the flowers were cut from old wedding veil head pieces. Like those cream lace and pearl flower pieces (one is pictured right above). Also the cover flowers which I can't get enough of!! The babies breath in the that flower piece has dried and taken on a tan hue that is just gorgeous. It's very fragile but oh so pretty! There is also lots of things from Lina G's in Morro Bay. Those color coordinated bags of remnants she has for 7 dollars really can take a project from ho hum to oh my god!!
The real inspiration came from wanting a place to display my prayer cards.
I hope everyone has a lovely Father's Day weekend!
