Mo's Dream Team Project of the Month Blog Hop!
Yes, dear Crafty Bloglanders - it's time for another fantastic blog hop and this month our projects are inspired by Fairy Tales. If you've arrived here from Liza's blog, you're on the right track. If not, why not hop over to Elaine's blog and start from the beginning, 'cos' you won't want to miss out on all that wonderfulness!
So, once I'd recovered my mojo from under the sofa, where it appears to have been hiding for a few days, I had a good old think about this one. Mo has some wonderful fairy tale images in her store, so it was just a case of which one to use and how. Now those of you who are regulars here might remember that I was once a bookbinder and fairy tales come in books so ...
Paper: Hand-printed paper, bought some time ago at a bookbinding conference.
Tools: Gold tooling stylus and gold foil.
Because of my time as a binder, I'm lucky to still have some beautiful hand-printed papers and this one had just the old-fashioned feel I wanted. I measured the book top to toe and then cut a strip of paper to that height, making sure it was long enough to wrap around the book and tuck into the front and back covers. It's that easy!
So, that's my project today - a fairy tale dust cover. Now you need to hop off to Cheryl's blog, where I know you'll find something scrumptious to feast your eyes on.
In case you get lost along the way, here's the full hop list:
