This months PPP over at Prima is sooo yummy I decided to do a summer book of quotes.
 It is a "junk journal"  I have been dying to make one of those after seeing them popping all over the bloggy world, like the one my friends Shahrul and Wendy have done.
It's a recycled one, I always save the Prima packaging, I think they do a terrific job.  I also wanted to continue with Mou's challenge at Design Memory Craft
So I made you all a little tutorial
I made them big so click on them to see the full instructions

gather your supplies, make evenly spaced holes on your chipboard

 start by applying gelato to your canvas pieces and then water them down
I loved the way this palette had a flow to it

 Time to paint your ribbon and your canvas pieces

First page, after doing the title work I used my PITT markers to fill the letters and do the outlines
 Here's a close up look inside

the flower reads
"in every girls life there's a boy she will never forget and a summer where it all "


"the skies are bluer, the flowers are brighter"

"Summer is where the girls go barefoot and their hearts are as free as their toes"

"the tans will fade but the memories will last forever"

I wrote on the flower
"every summer memory lives inside me forever"

"some of the best memories are made in flip flops"

"Live in the Sunshine
Swim in the Sea
Drink the wild air"

so chunky and pretty..finished size is 3"x3"

and here's the palette
2013 August PPP
Happy creating and happy weekend!!!

What a stunning work of art sweetie, that's just wonderful! And so nice to see the process of the making too and seeing the re-using of "junk". I see you used several things I never tried before, so who's inspiring who now :) Well, you always inspire me too with your beautiful mixed media art. Thank you for mentioning my work, that's an honour. Hugs xx
