The project required cutting the covers off of two hard cover books. Well... when my son was in.... oh..... 4th-ish grade, the school was getting new history books and when school out for summer break, they let the parents take the old books. I wish I would have know then the great uses and fun I could have with them and I would have taken more than one!
Anyway! I didn't have TWO books, but this Michigan book was large enough, that I could cut the covers in half, still giving me 4 "pages" to work with. So that's what I did.
Then I got busy with the gesso and then collage some papers all over it. Next is the scary part....drawing my girl face! OOO ....such challenges I'm in for. I'm pretty excited about it.
Work was awful today. I have to make up a couple hours due to a long Dr. appt. the other day, so I was in at 7AM...and the day just dragged! I think I yawned about a million times! I was so pleased when I came home though!
(back up a little.... Last weekend I found some really cool flowering teas...of all places...at Office Depot!) So I came home. I made myself a "cuppa" .......and..... AND!!!
The friendship book from Mary at Green Paper came in the mail today, that she so generously gave in the OWOH project! It's so beautiful! It was exactly what I needed today. I really enjoyed sitting for that moment, relaxing, and checking out all the cool vintage papers Mary put in the book. She even included a pocket, made out of an old map, filled with lots of other loose vintage goodies.
I'm off now ladies.... of to watch American Idol! I'm not much of a reality show fan....but Idol... my whole family loves.
