Julies Christmas Book Part 2

This is the reverse of the bauble page shown yesterday. I have kept the decoration to a minimum by just adding punched holly around the edge as I intend to add journalling after christmas.

This page was separated with a sticker border ans is the plainest of the pages but left deliberately for photos or journalling after christmas.

As you can see there are 3 photo inserts before the leaf page. All of the leaves on the page have been individually glittered using a Quickie Glue Pen and Glamour dust.

This is the plainest of the pages with just a sticky borber across the middle. Photos and journalling will be added after christmas.

Again 2 pictures have been added to the book and then the page behind was embellished using the 2 holly leaves on the sticker sheet as a pattern. Note the circle on the side of the book.

The circle is a mechanism for producing the pop up bear. Those of you who chose to add this to their book were shown how in class but if you need to see it again please ask Julie in the shop.

The owl is by Hero Arts and was provided in the kit. The cage is made from the window template also in your kit. I removed the windows and then cut small strips of paper and glued then to the window. Once dry I coloured with gold paint dabber and then put on a thick coat of Glossy Accents on the cage giving it depth. The owl was coloured in using ultra fine glitter and was attached to the cage by his feet. The cage is attached to the page only by one gold brad to give movement.

Two more photos were added here. Of course this book has photos of each of the family members who will be there at christmas. By building your book this way, you can add as many photos and extra pages as you want.

The final page is decorated only with red glitter on the berries and is being saved for a family picture.

And lastly the back page (Work in progress). Hope you like it. Watch out for Karens book part one tomorrow.
