Antonia with you today sharing a new layout. Did you know that I was born in January? And indeed I love winter!! But my favorite season is Autumn. I really love those earth colors -greens, browns, yellows… all mixed together with red. It’s not warm but not cold. But above all, it’s the best time for reading with a great cup of tea by your side. Books are one of my passions, and when I saw this wonderful bookplate kit that 49&Market has created I got crazy! I had to create a layout for a book reader like me 🙂
Conversely to what I always do, I starting by creating the main piece of the project: a book. Using some 1 cm cardboard pieces, I created layers in between each page of the book. Then took some transfers to add splashes of color and texts here and there. I also folded some papers to add volume and movement to the pages. Then I thought about using the new range of foliage, and so I put some of them over the upper page and created a scrapbook as it was used to be done in the past. I also folded an acrylic butterfly to make it stand on the right page.
When all of this was done, I glued down the background paper onto a 2mm cardboard and inked the borders with brown Distress color. Worked a little bit on the background with washi tape and rub-ons before deciding where to put the book. Then I played with the new range of wonderful flowers from Mango collection along with some green ones.
Final touches were made adding bubbles and trinkets, and orange beads.
