This is a book I had that is about this same size as the mini comp books. I made this one for my DIL for her birthday on Friday. I seen other's using corrugated card board in their art work. So I thought that I would give it a try. Sun flower is the card board, on a back ground of ink distressed crackled scrapbook paper. Inked the flower and put on a little yellow paint. Vintage button, fake rhinestone, and embossed wall paper strips, with a few wipes of yellow paint. The leaves are cut out from another paper with flowers. Distressed all around and fashion yarn added.The back is green stripped scrapbook paper distressed with ink. Butterfly cut from note card, bird cut from old bird book, and he is chirping fake rhinestones music notes on a piece of vintage sheet music. The front and back of book. A little tea stained lace on the bottom.The inside pages of the mini book are brown craft type paper. Cover of mini book is brown chip board. I seem to be making a lot of small piece's of art. I have about a dozen larger canvases ready to work on and cant seem to figure out what to do with them. Maybe small is my thing. I will ask Pearl to help me get started on canvas when I get back to Florida.Went to a few yard sales this morning and got a few things, I will post about them next time.
All for now thanks for looking and come back soon.
