Star Seashell Book

This is an August class to wrap up the summer. It has a seashell theme and a quote about the sea on the cover. You may of course make a custom cover and call it Cruise 2010 or the name of your favorite lake. Or it could just be a dream book. After we make the star book we will put together the 5 spreads and the cover. The back of the pages could hold extra pics or journaling. Let us take a look....

The book from above....

The book as is meant to be left open and standing on a bookshelf or a coffee table...or anywhere you have a little space. The book is 7¨ tall and each page is 5¨ (although the internal page is 6" wide).

The first spread....embossed on the left.

The second spread. Big chip board shell has a fun paint technique on it.

Love how the stamp on the left matches the paper in the middle spread.

This butterfly is much prettier in real is alcohol inks on a piece of transparency and it is quite shimmery...but hard to photograph!

The last spread...perfect didn´t think I would do this and not use Perfect Pearls! They look like seashells.

The cover when the book is closed and tied. That little panel is the one that can be customized to say whatever you would like. Hope you can join me for class... it will be fun! August 12th and 22nd at Scrapbooks Too.
