Don't be fooled into thinking I've been crafting..... this project is one I drafted a while ago and forgot to post so, as I've been on travel photo overload lately, I thought I'd pop it in. Meander books are a a quick way to make a mini book but they are so small when a 12 x 12 card is used so I cut a 16 inch square from an A3 sheet of good quality cartridge paper, which will make a 4inch square book.
After colouring it with Distress Inks on both sides I decorated the pages which would be on view once the card is folded, using stencils and masks.
You can stamp images over your decorations but it is also so simple to scribble around the stencilled shapes with a fine line waterproof pen as I did for the front cover, below. Do it quite freely without too much thought or consideration and it will look more "arty".
Here's a full sheet I decorated for another book.
This book I decorated each page separately to show various effects and ideas.
Pockets can easily be cut to take tags
a V shape is cut to make a tag slot.
A circle punch provided a slot at the side of a page.
The quote stamps are from Stampattack and Carol has several of sheets of really special ones for every occasion.
The only crafting I have done lately has been with my visiting little fraulein, now back home so I am really missing her.
No! It's not WOYWW but with this mess below....
She helped so well to make this bit of fun...
however she preferred it on her head and not as a mask.
The elastic proved so fascinating.
