Seasonal Fun!

Autumnal Chunky Book

I love making handmade books, and all kinds.  For this project, I created a fun Fall colored chunky book.  Filled with wonderful fall colors with a retro feel, this book was so fun to make. I used the Glitz "Color Me Happy" paper pack.  And happy it is!  Filled with wonderful colors and designs, the paper makes for the best book pages!

I created pages with pockets that can hold all kinds of fun stuff.
I punched holes and added some great orange ribbon to hold it all together.  But the real full part was decorating the pages!  A combination of buttons, embellishments and stickers, this book really took shape fast. 

I hope everyone has a great summer and gives making books a try! 
Best Wishes:   Corinne Marie

Supplies Used:
Ribbons and Trims

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
