mixed media mini stitched book


I think I'm going through a bit of a mini book phase - I finished this one in the week and another one (for a magazine challenge) yesterday!


The cover is made from an old wool blanket that I've added felt too with that wonderful 'dumphing' machine!  Then some free machining and snippets of lace.


Inside the page sizes vary.  I used pre painted papers that have been hanging around my studio forever, tags,  old book pages, envelopes...












I got to use two new toys in this project - Tim's washer border and Typeset Alphabet dies which I ordered from the lovely Wendy at The Stamp Attic.  I love the umbrella man die too but decided these had more uses, and they'll make great stencils!


I particularly LoVe the effect I got when I put three sets of papers through my Cuttlebug - the text paper got stuck into the coloured paper one underneath (the stitching's there to keep it altogether, I couldn't be bothered taking each tiny letter out to glue it back in lol)

Sarah this is one stunning book I love it - you can almost feel all the texture through the screen. Gorgeous!

I adore mini everythings, this book is stunning. I love the stitched cover, and you have so many clever things in your pages...especially liked your 'typeset' page where the layers stuck together and you've added stitching. Something to be enjoyed for hours at a time, and keep coming back to. Hug slin
