Today I am sharing one of my favorite things, a book, which I have used as a base for my project today. Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge this week is to share a favorite, idea, project, photo, product, etc...
My project started with an idea I had seen in a mixed media book. The mixed media book showed a book with the pages folded in different ways to created different angles along with die cut pieces inserted.
I decided to start by folding pages into triangles and alternating with folded pages and using border punches on other pages. I continued to fold and folded with a regular pattern all the pages in the book.
The next step was to spray over the entire surface of the folded pages and inside of the covers with a mist. I die cut four clocks from pattern paper and acetate to create my clocks which are my bookends on either end of the book.
I added the birds and branches intermixed into the pages:
A few other things:
Stamped the rulers on cardstock and sponged and distressed them and taped the m to the edges. I added patterned paper to the inside covers to coordinate with my blues.
The bird on the front is sitting in a nest made from moss.
I stamped the inside of the clock and used the stamped pen nibs for hands on the clock. I added the sentiment stamped onto the acetate and pop dotted it to allow for the hands and brad inside the clock.
I misted the flower to coordinate with a touch of seam binding behind it.
The folding of the pages took some time but it was fun to do while watching t.v. with the family. So a nice project that didn't require too much thought. :)
