There's no place like home!

 Hello everyone, 

For today's AALL & Create post I have made a mini book that is rolled up around a card board cilinder. I have used Janet Klein's Wizard of Oz stamps to make this. 

Here's how I made this:

I tore two pieces of 12 x 12 design paper by Stamperia into strips and glued them together to make on longer strip. I then added white paint with a brayer to tone down the print. Once that was dry I added stencilling with yellow paint to create 'the yellow brick road'. I also added some numbers for more interest. 

Next I added random stamping and I sewed around the edges with my sewing machine. 

Here's the whole thing. 

Next I stamped my characters and sentiments....

and coloured them with Copic Markers. I cut them all out and ...

glued them onto my paper. 

I used a piece of cardboard cilinder from a pack of clingfilm to roll it around.
I added a piece of paper at the left end which I glued to the cardboard.
I also added a piece of ribbon on the right end to be able to keep it closed. 

I have used the following materials:

#132 - Flagstone Figures by Autour de Mwa

#495 - + or x by Janet Klein
#338 - Background Noise by Janet Klein
#501 - Dorothy & Toto by Janet Klein
#503 - Tin Man & Monkey by Janet Klein
#505 - Scarcrow & Lion by Janet Klein
