Challenge 46 Out of a Hat

Hello Friends and Followers everywhere. A big thank you for taking time to visit my blog and all the wonderful comments you leave.

This week at The Hatters the project is 3 Textures and I know some people can make wonderful textures in all sorts of ways but mine are a bit 'normal' I'm afraid.

I am making a book of dictionary alpha pages at the Craft Barn so I thought I would use the textures challenge to make the cover for the book


First of all I covered the book with some paper from my Search Press Bumper Book of Papers and painted it with H20 shiny gold paint. Then I added a piece of card that was embossed with a folder and highlighted with Distressed Ink. Lastly, to add extra strength to the sides, I edged them with some nice, thick, patterned ribbon. This should stay strong for the whole year it is going to take to do the Alpha Challenge Pages.

Hope you will visit Janet and Sandra to see what they made for this challenge and if you have time, join with us in this challenge

Love Chrissie xx

Clever to make a cover for your "alphabet" book. Don't you just love it when you can create something beautiful for a challenge and it is useful as well - "two birds, one stone". Good job Chrissie.
