A mini book for AALL & Create

Hello everyone,

I have a mini book to share today. I had made one recently and really enjoyed it so I thought I'd make another one for AALL & Create. It might be small, just over 2" in total it was quite a labour of love to make this from scratch !

Here's how I made it :

I started with a gel press plate, acrylic paints and this stencil to create my background for the book. 

Next I cut the pages to size; 10 pieces measuring 2"x2" (they are called 'Twinchies') I also cut 5 pieces of black card stock to make the bases of the pages with. These are just a little larger than the Twinchies. The ring is going to be used as the binding to make the Twinchies into a little book.

The next step was to stamp the backgrounds. I used Distress Oxide inks in similar colours as the backgrounds and a little black. 

I then chose which images I was going to use from these stamp sets. The one on the right was just used for the backgrounds. 

After I stamped all the Twinchies, I coloured the images with coloured pencils. Some straight on the Twinchie, some I stamped again on white card stock, coloured and cut out. 

Next I added some modelling paste through this stencil. 

And this is how it eventually turned out. I glued all the Twinchies onto the black panels, front and back, punched a hole through all of them and put them onto the ring. I added som ribbons to make it look pretty !
