Vintage BIA Book

I haven't been up to crafting for a few days - so forced myself to go out into the studio just to relax and play.



And this is the result.

I cut up some mount board - but it was slightly not quite right, so I cut up some more, rather larger pieces.

Then cut up lots of A4 sheets of paper to size - its a nice big very chunky book.

I distressed and inked the edges to tone in with the image.

The image has a nice and tranquil look about it I thought - and quite Spring like - the sun has been out this morning.

It took more than an hour - so technically its not elegible for the One Powerful Hour challenge - but one of the hours was pretty 'powerful' whilst making it! The rest of the time was rather boring doing all the cutting out and clearing up!

This is a lovely chunky book! Wouldn't it be great if we had little art elf that woudl od all the cutting for us so we could concentrate on the pretty parts :)

Thanks for taking the challenge!
