Handmade Book

Warning - Photo heavy!
I handmade a small notebook for my sister.
Its purpose, so she could note what we did on holiday.
I made the pages using shaving foam & distress reinkers.
I did one side Milled Lavender,
let it dry well & then turned over
& repeated with Victorian Velvet.
I used PaperArtsy Stamps,
Finnabair stamps,
Donna Downey empowered word stamps,
Baroque Swirl stamp is by Inkylicious
I then stitched the book together using dental floss.
Here is the finished piece.

I tried to keep the book simple so that my sister had room to write.
She said the shaving foam made the paper lovely & silky, smooth to write on.
