The universe is yours

 Hello everyone, 

For today's AALL & Create project I have made a mini book:

Here's how I made it.

This was an experiment. I have made a lot of these so called zine books and if you use paper that is too thick it will not sit properly. So, for this one I decided to use a single sheet of 80 gsm typing paper. 
It works but would probably work better with a slightly thicker paper as this is a little flimsy. 
I dunked the paper into Distress Oxide ink Weatered Wood and then folded into the shape. I then added the stencilling and stamping. 

This is what is looks like folded. 

Next I added some more stamping, this time in yellow, pink and blue. 

I chose the images I wanted to use and coloured them and cut them out. 

I added a piece of washi tape and a sentiment.

Same for this page and the next 

These little books are great fun and a good way of collecting you favourite images. 

I have used :

#97 - Starry night by Janet Klein
#136 - Bug Hotel by Autour de Mwa

#692 - African Voices by Janet Klein
#697 - Kenyan Boy by Janet Klein
#707 - Cleopatra by Janet Klein
#736 - Morocco by Janet Klein

  1. This is a delight, Corrie - I love these little zine books, and they make such unique cards. Loving the contrast between the foreground elements and the 'washed' background. Wonderful!
