Mini Book Paris

I had a busy day yesterday doing things I don't really like, such as washing and h*******k, and even cleaned the balcony, and had a big victory over 2 large spiders who have been bungee jumping in front of my window every evening. I warned them; they didn't listen, and paid the price. I just do not like spiders!

I used another small piece of marbled paper to make a mini-book, this time with a Paris theme. the book has been sewn together with narrow, pink ribbon, and measures - closed - just under 2"x 1 1/2". The stamps are from Artemio and Chocolate Baroque. I  used hand-made paper with torn edges, which were inked in purple, and then stamped and collaged.  The images are from CI.









The thumb, also inked with purple, is mine!

I am linking to the challenge on Blockheads Paper Arts

Have a good day you all, take care, and thanks for dropping in!

  11. Love these minis! Especially the pic of the vamp, what a great pose you captured for the book! 2 less spiders in the population are all better in my book!

  12. I just love this marbled paper! Stunning little mini book! I don't like spiders, but really hate flies! Those nasty things love to fly in when we open a door to get out of the heat! Enjoy the day!

  19. FANTASTIC book, Valerie! I was looking at your pics, reading your post, and thinking "I'm going to suggest she enters this in the Blockheads challenge!"

    How funny is that???

    You read my mind before I even thought it . . . no, that doesn't make sense at all, does it?

    Anyway, so glad you joined in!
