The snow mini book has landed

Well after all the beautiful snow we have had and the lovely pictures I managed to take I thought it was only right to put them all together in a mini book. I used my December Cleo crafts kit with a few added extras from my stash. Apologies for the quality of some of the photos the light was really bad.


The page on the left above has a flap created by the photo and the ribbon as a hinge to hide my journalling.

To make the frames I measured the photo then drew it on to chipboard and cut it out with a craft knife. I then painted it with purple acrylic paint and stamped snowflakes on to it with silver ink when dry.


I used a watermark ink pad and a fern stamp to add some texture to the background although you can't tell very well on the photos. The definition was created by stamping on glossy card with archival ink and then using alcohol inks to make a pattern over the top. I wasn't completely happy with it as the colours can out abit too vivid for what I had wanted.

The final page shows a big contrast in the weather between Jan 2010 and Jan 2009. The photos were taken from almost the same spot at the same time of year.
