FOLIO! yep I made one :)

Standard

A while ago I won a large TH folio, I really had no idea what I would do with it or when so it sat in my drawer. I recently ordered the Marion Smith Junque Gyspy from Country Craft creations https://www.facebook.com/tammyscountrycraftcreations?fref=ts   and when I saw it I didn’t know what I would do with it, so it went into the drawer too. Not that is wasn’t beautiful but it had so many cut apart pages that I could not see getting enough whole paper to make a mini ( even my easy one ).  Well to shorten this story I was going through the drawer and found both items snuggled together and took it as a sign. I heavily distressed the folio with sprays and water colors,IMG_20150522_113349 IMG_20150522_113419 IMG_20150522_113653

I cut apart all the cut a parts, I sewed the book together and then assembled.IMG_20150523_110354IMG_20150523_110512IMG_20150523_110500 I really love how the book came together.

The acetate page was a lot of fun as well. IMG_20150523_110346

Here are some more pictures of the rest of the folio. It really is ALL about the beautiful papers.IMG_20150523_110236IMG_20150523_110341IMG_20150523_110336IMG_20150523_110540IMG_20150523_110401 It was truly a first for me to make something that wasn’t photo focused even though I made sure it would hold quite a few photos. Since Cyndi was invited to a Garden walk and it has a floral feel I am giving it to her.

I hope you like it and if you decide to give it a try tell Tamra I sent you 🙂

thanks for reading,

Miki
