A Folded Book - Part 1...

I attended a Folded Book class yesterday, at Scrapaway in Edgemead, with my friend Pia, and had a great time learning how to create the template - we used a dinner plate - and then the folds and decorating... So much fun!

I was confused about the numbers of photo's required, and their sizes, so I chose to complete the book at home, where I could print and resize and reprint piccies as required.

Here's a look at the first page I've finished - entitled Biker Girl...

Olivia Rose is only 6 months old but already has her own Biker Girl outfit, and is seen sitting on her dad's bike (with dad of course!).

The base paper was fantastic - it was already embossed and behaved like Core-dinations when sanded. I used Vintage Photo Distress ink once the paper had been sanded and the highlights are Diamond Stickles and Antique Linen Distress Stickles.

Stamps are Snag 'em Stamps (Scooter) and Hero Arts (sentiment). The Scooter has been coloured with Gelly Roll Pens.

More to come!
