6" x 6" Book

Front Cover

Inside of front cover

Title Page

Back of Title Page

I'm participating in a book round robin on the yahoo group AllThingsTim. We are to make or buy a book no larger than 6"x 6". I made mine using heavy chipboard for the covers and 300# watercolor paper for the pages... this makes the pages sturdy enough to handle any supplies and all the embellishments someone would want to use. I decorated the front cover, both sides and a title page, both sides. Supplies used - distress crackle paint, distress inks, Adirondack pigment inks, Archival ink, Tim Holtz stamps, grungeboard, ideaology embellishments, distress embossing powder, ribbon trims, distress stickles, sticky back gems, silk flowers, button, thread. I am in a group with 7 other people for this round robin and am looking forward to seeing the artful pages these ladies do in my book and also working in their books.

Oh, these are beautiful!! I would be *very* hard pressed to pick a favorite - but I do love that last page. The colors, the birds, the flowers. It's seamless. I just love them all!!
