I made a book! Petal Passion Designer Series Paper

Bookmaking has been on my list of  “things to learn” for several years now.

Yesterday, I was able to complete that goal thanks to a class sponsored by Little River Arts Council (LRAC). The class was taught by my friend and amazing local artist, Lydia Randolph.

Lydia offered us a huge array of papers, ribbons, vintage wall paper and other goodies, but my heart was set on our new Petal Passion Designer Series Paper and Berry Burst metallic edge ribbon.

The paper features flowers in black and white. I watercolored them with my ink pads and an aqua

painter. The little bit of sparkle comes from clear Wink of Stella.

Many thanks to Lydia and LRAC!  Here is how it turned out.

Thanks for looking!
