July is here and the weather is just glorious for the moment. I’m working outside as much as possible on our little shady terrace which has a wonderful view of the garden and endless inspiration for sketching, painting and planning.
I must have had a summer vibe going on when I made up this mini album. I’ll be taking part in a small hand craft market coming up in September so I need to build up some stock for my table. I’ll be selling photo albums and felt creations for starters. I’ve lots of other ideas in my head but it remains to be seen if I actually get around to making them a reality.
It’s also my piece for the WOW Facebook Challenge this month where the new theme is Embossing Glitter.
I’m still keeping up with my December daily journal although I might not exactly be to the day. It’s that busy time of the year don’t you know (smiley face).
I did wonder how using a junk journal with some very thin pages would work out but so far it’s not been too much of a problem if at all.
If anything shows through from the other side I’ve just covered it up with a picture or paper.
I’ve been working flat out to make mini books and albums for an artists Christmas event coming up in a weeks time. I’ll be showing and selling various different types of mini album including these accordion books. They’re just the right size for a few photos and messages for a last minute gift idea. I’m hoping they’ll go down well on the stand.
Looking at them here maybe I need to make a few not pink ones, I think my girly side took over.
Have a good weekend and if you have snow, stay safe and warm.
