DT Project #1 - Diana

HI everyone!!

as the lovely ladies had all shown you this month already we all have been working with Kaisercraft's Art of Life line and the projects before me were totally spectacular i must say!
for my project i decided to follow suit with Minxy and show a video close up of my project followed with a  few pictures.


i must say i absolutely loved working with this line of paper.. the neutral tones were so my style!!!
so here is my video:

and here are the close up pictures including a few befores and durings!! so here is the plain book i started with.
 i used my ruler and a fiskars rotary trimmer and cut out some centres all the way through.
 i coloured the cut outs with my lovely tim holtz distress markers
because i had mod podged sections of my book together it allowed me to use the cards as tabs on each section. i really love how it turned out. i find it very antique/vintage like!!

i hope you enjoyed my project! i will see you again at the end of the week!!

This is beautiful and it gave me an idea, I have a book I could turn into something both useful and decorative. Thinking cap on...
