They reckon it was the hottest day of the year so far ... and I reckon they may be right!
I spent most of the day sat out on Hels' new and rather lovely decking rather than making the projects she had organised for us ... but it was too nice to go inside!
I made this little book a while back with summer colours in mind ... so today seems like a perfect day to blog it! I was thinking Mediterranean sun rather than the UK ... but the sky was so blue today and yesterday ... we could have been somewhere in the Med! Anyways ... the book was such fun to make ... it became a class!
To make the book I cut a sheet of grey board in half and coloured it with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. I then decorated it with Maya Road chip, Idea-ology corners and lots of yummy Grunge paper from Lord Tim of Holtz. You know Tim ... the man that can catch a Fly with a pair of chopsticks in his sleep while creating a scale model of the leaning tower of Pisa with just a demo sized bottle of Sepia accents and a "Hope" Adage ticket!
The flowers, frame and journalling ticket are coloured with Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade and Antique Linen ... The pages inside are also coloured with a selection of the same inks and some Glimmer mist!
Of course it is bound with my fabulous Bind-it-all and I have used the 3/4" antique brass wires that are my new favourites!
OK ... I am going to stop typing now because I am beginning to melt ... Have a fab weekend everyone!
