WOW- A Special Book for Ella......

Hi Folks,

Just popping in to share a special book that i made for Ella for Christmas documenting our wonderful trip to see the Wearable Arts Awards in Wellington in September 2013.

I went very mixed media with this one too. One crop night I took the book, some texture paste, inks, sprays and stamps and went to town on every page getting the backgrounds ready.

The next crop day i started putting it all together and tried to keep a continuous flow by using doilies, washi tape- (LOVE this stuff), plasterers tape , masking tape for my journalling and inked tags. This helped to give it a  more uniform look despite the colours in the photos. I also kept some of the memorabilia from the trip- cable car tickets and an envelope at the start that held our WOW tickets and plane tickets, zoo map etc. At the end i used the folder to keep the Te Papa map and information all together.

So here goes - lots of pages to share ....





































A little different from my usual style but i am really happy with how it came out! And best of all Ella loved it and that i had made it especially for her. A happy customer!

Feel free to share your thoughts! I will be back with my December Daily for 2013 in the next few days!

Thanks for visiting ...

Francine
