I spent some of the weekend getting my pages ready for a fat book project I'm involved with. After a lot of cutting, twiddling, curling and sticking the front of the pages are all done - that's the "fat" side of the pages. Now I need to do the other side which gives the information about the maker of the page and is supposed to be kept fairly flat so that it doesn't damage whichever page it faces onto. I bet that's as clear as mud, isn't it?
Anyway, this is the second one I've done and I really enjoy making the pages. You make a page for each member of the group and send them to the host, who sorts them all out and sends a set of pages back to you. Once that's happened you are able to make the cover for your new book which has a page to admire and treasure.from each contributor. Although my pages are fundamentally the same as each other, each one differs slightly from the rest - I like to describe them as "unique" because it sounds better than saying that I simply can't manage to do them all the same!I think a couple of sneak peeks would be ok!here are a couple of sneak peeks
Sorry about the "artistically" blurred photos, but someone (I wonder who that could have been...?) used the little camera to do some photos for selling stuff on ebay yesterday and didn't put the settings back to the way they should be - of course I don't know where they should be, do I?
That same someone took his "proper" camera out into the garden yesterday and took a couple of fab photos which I thought I'd share.
This is the first of the peony flowers to open fully - it's absolutely huge; about 15cms in diameter, and looks stunning.
This poppy is huge too, maybe even bigger if you were to extend the petals fully. We planted these a couple of years ago and as they didn't look too great last year we thought they'd failed, but this year we've a few of these glorious bright flowers
That's it for today - I've new Crafty Templates samples to share tomorrow.
Thanks for looking, Happy crafting!
