This is my first time participating in a Hero Arts Challenge. One part of the challenge consisted of creating ANY theme that features a Bookmaking technique. Ooh, right up my alley-I love making and repairing books and haven't had much opportunity since college. Since my supply of stamps is limited (to me anyway, my husband thinks otherwise) I turned to some oldie but goodie Hero Arts Digital Images Vintage Trio Of Women, Friendship Definition and Stitched Border files to create my front and back cover panels for a fresh, sassy and fun notebook for my friend's birthday. Here's what my digital file looks like from the three sets:
I added an acetate cover on my little book to keep the printed image from getting roughed up in her purse (I'm assuming it is like mine and is a bottomless pit) and the baker's twine is a sturdy addition for binding. Here's a bit of a tutorial-my first one so I know I have a lot to learn. Please click on the picture to make it a bit larger.
