My Book of Family

Hello all and welcome to my little blog.

Today I have something a little different than my usual scrap booking. 

 I am sharing with you an altered book that I did with one of my favourite photographs of myself and my children. 

A few years ago we did a photo shoot which was a gift for me for Mother's Day from these special humans. Its was the best day, us girls got our hair and make up professionally done. The photographer came up with some fun poses which in the end has us all in stitches.

 Taking an old hardcover book and altering it to create a beautiful keepsake was just so much fun. Adhering all the pages so that they fall just the way I wanted them to look. Adding the flowers, metal trinkets and chipboard pieces. These are great projects to use all those bits and pieces that you have lying around in your craft room.

Next I covered everything with Gesso. I added the colours using Prima sprays. 

 Finished it with some extra flowers.

Now to find a stand for it. 
Thanks for stopping by
