It is starting to get cooler again which always makes me a little sad because I know winter will be right around the corner =/ I'm not a huge fan of Michigan winter but whatever, at least it makes my urge to stay inside and craft not as crazy hah. Anyway, I made a wee book for a swap on craftster that was Halloween themed and definitely got me in the mood for the season a bit - I'm even planning a fun costume for Halloween =)
It was for Kira at Oops I Craft My Pants who is an awesome artists and person! She loves bright colors, Halloween, and animals so I tried to run with those themes in mind.
I'm not 100% happy with the covers but I just didn't know what to do for them...they turned out ok I think. I was really trying to bring out the color here.
Some in progress pictures to show the layering effect I've fallen in love with!
Here's how each page looks as you flip through in order - I wish the pictures would have shown the dimensionality better but oh well =/
Kira is famous for her wicked witch bookmark feet so I included that small detail here for fun! Also check out what's drying on the line - there's a naked ghost somewhere! haha.
Detail of the binding - I love the look of coptic stitch!
And some close ups of my favorite pages
And now I don't think I have anything else top secret that I can't show you! Hmmm, well maybe I can start doing some little tutorials, or highlight other awesome people I know. We'll see....=)
