I can't begin to express the love I have for this little book so far. It's the very first mini book I have created, and it is filled with things about me. Which is different from my Project Life spreads where I document the story of my family. I find that this is the perfect way to incorporate what is going on in my life right now. I've purchased the class kit, but I am also incorporating a lot of film and supplies from my stash.
I've completed the basic pages of my mini book, and wanted to share my progress so far. It's full of image transfers, watercolor, and film! The above image is my first page, including my a favorite instax and page I tore out from the recent Anthropologie house and home catalog that I loved.
Working through journaling and the list of prompts is up next.
I haven't put my own creative stamp on the cover yet. Thinking I'll wait until I know exactly what I want to do.
On the left is a watercolor pattern I worked on, cut into 4x6 size and included in the book. Also, one of the things I love most about the class are the image transfer techniques that Tina walks us through. On this tag - I included image transfers of butterflies.
Including film with my documenting is extremely important to me. Film captures are sprinkled all throughout my mini book.
Packaging tape image transfer on the left. Using up my stash on the right!
Loving these watercolor circles and the blending of colors.
Loving how the image transfers make ordinary photos look like abstract works of art.
A polaroid from this trip.
A little obsessed with painting spoons with watercolor. No rhyme or reason....
For this, I used watercolor and one of my daughter's butterfly stencils.
Following one of Tina's prompts from the class, I printed out my hand on vellum paper and added journaling to a watercolor pattern card I had directly behind it. Love how this turned out.
A little acrylic pattern painting with a natural sponge.
And a postcard I included from one of my favorite brunch restaurants.
I'm working through the list of prompts next, and adding journaling to this little book, which is quickly becoming thick! I'll be sure to share more of my progress soon.
