I *heart* my collection of Momiji dolls and have been wanting to create a lil mini book of them for ages.
With all my "jobs" done I settled down yesterday and had a play.
Ive been trying to get hold of a acrylic mini book but they dont appear to have hit the UK shores just yet....I got my thinking cap on and then remembered I had a pile of OHP sheets sittin in my craft room.
I had intended on making the book "clear" but it didnt happen because I really wanted to use up the I *heart* Candy Town papers that I'd purchsed especially to co-ordinate with my Momiji Dolls.
So here it is!
I doodled lots over the papers, added images of my dolls and then sandwiched the mini Lo's between the OHP, which I then stitched together using my sewing machine.
The journalling, on each page, are direct quotes taken from the Momiji packaging...I just typed them up and then printed them off....cut out the strips and adhered them on top of the relevant pages.
The stickers used were the ones Anna sent to me a month or so ago...thanks Anna...I finally got to use them :) I added crystal gems,rubons, Q&co flowers and other bits and pieces I had lying around to embellish...maybe I'll add some more.....ummm not sure?????
I *heart* the quotes because each of my dolls have been given to me as gifts from friends and family....it gives me such a warm and snuggly feeling to think my buddies took time to select the dolls they have for me.
The book is held together using book rings and is a lot more studier than I thought it would be....I'll be making another for sure.
Ive made up another book to RAK...leave me a comment if you want to have a go at making one of these books for yourself and I'll announce one winner on Sunday night.
Mr UPS has just delivered a box of yummie prizes for me to play with....*slurp* *slurp* *slurp* I *heart* you Mr Scenic Route :)
Off to play....have a great day.
