i'm really pleased with this............

i've been wanting to have a go at making a fabric book for some time now, so when i saw march's challenge over on vanilla sugar it pushed me forward :)

i made it using just plain pastel coloured cottons. the 'pages' are cream and the cover is purple on the outside and pink on the inside (only because i didn't have enough of either colour to do it all the same!!)

so,then i needed to decorate the cover........i decided to use the colour scheme in the whispers of colour challenge over on bubbly scrumptious it's a weekly challenge and this one was set saturday 6th march so i'm a bit late with it!!!!........the colours to use were peach,lemon or cream and pink.....i misread it and did lemon,cream and pink!!! (well at least i tried LOL)

i'm planning on using this book to put in little samplers of fabric theme,just going with the flow :)

pages for march

better late than never..........heres my pages for march......
i've decided to use the colour challenge over on the bubbly scrumptious blog (scroll down to 27th feb) the colours were lilac,blue with a hint of deep pink and cream.
1st off i painted the page with lilac pearlescent acryic ink, then i dry painted with blue pearlescent acrylic ink. i then used white pearlescent ink to stamp some large flowers on the background. round the edges i stamped some swirls using pink acylic paint. the squares for writing on are cream and the 'march' is blue and pink.
