I covered the card in gesso and then painted it with the base colour. Then I drew and painted the bird and the flower. I still have not made my mind up what to go on the spine, any ideas? I then added ribbon and covered the inside with blue tissue paper.
As it was so small I decided rather than have individual pages I would do an accordian style. I very roughly folded a length of watercolor paper and then drew and painted on them in acrylics. These are the pages.
I then glued the back page into the cover.
This is the end result, which I am really chuffed about.
I am now hooked and collecting all my empty packages, so shall go bigger.
By the way there is still time to enter for my three giveaways, all details can be found here. Happy weekend everyone.
